“YOU HAVE NO MORE AUTHORITY THAN A HORSE’S ASS”….said the guardian with a chuckle.

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

From the Silver Standard’s Elder Abuse Reform Project

By Marcia Southwick

In most states, if you are deemed incapacitated by a court, it will hand your rights over to a professional or family guardian who then will make all decisions for you.  Given that state courts are backlogged, and judges are faced with stacks of papers, it’s no wonder that a tendency to treat every case with uniformity has developed.   Unfortunately, one size does not fit all, and many elders and persons with disabilities are not being treated as individuals with dignity but rather as second-class citizens without equal protection under the law—as a non-person.  The descriptions of how removal of rights has caused suffering are heartbreaking.

Now that someone (often a complete stranger) has been appointed Dictator over your life and assets, and now that this Dictator has almost no supervision and little accountability for how your assets are spent, how are you feeling about it?  Not too great.   How is the guardian feeling?  Power drunk.

Even though guardians can control every aspect of people’s lives, they aren’t monitored by outsiders.  They pay themselves out of your estate in addition to having the right to claim that anything they do is in your “best interest.”  If that means selling your house and throwing you into a lock-down unit, so be it. If your spouse of 50 years fights for your freedom, they will simply, on your behalf and “in your best interests”, get you a divorce from that pesky spouse.  If your family doesn’t like it and wages a court battle, the guardian can use YOUR money to hire a lawyer to battle back, quickly exhausting your estate. And, what are your families chances of winning if you are in one of the many jurisdictions where the judge, the guardian, who was very possibly appointed by the judge, and the guardian’s lawyer are old pals?

Tonight we revisit Pennsylvania and the blatant abuse of the system of professional predator guardians.  While a bit of good news surfaced here recently, with the conviction of a Montgomery County, Pennsylvania lawyer who availed himself of thousands of dollars of his wards money, we still have many more stories to cover.

Coz will review the story of “Thomas”.  Shenanigans in Montgomery County, PA

We will also be talking with Jeffrey Hennel.  His mother is warehoused in a facility where she is allowed no visitation.  His mother desperately wants to see Jeffrey as he does her…..but apparently it is far more pleasurable for the “guardian” to keep them separated.  The sick pleasures some people enjoy!!

GUARDIANS TAKE TOTAL CONTROL: ISOLATE, MEDICATE, LIQUIDATE: The Tragic End of Marvin Siegel’s Life

Leave a comment

FROM OUR APRIL 1, 2019 PRINTED EDITION:

by Lonnie Brennan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“They killed him,” Marvin Siegel’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger wrote in a text. She followed up to explain that six years of round-the-clock captivity in his own home and in various medical facilities, together with forced drugging and morphine, lack of proper care and the ability for his family to interact with him and help with decisions, accelerated her father’s death.

As we previously reported in this paper through a multi-part series of articles, including a personal account by Lisa, six years ago her father was taken from his Boxford, Mass. home via ambulance at the direction of a visiting nurse, and  was shortly thereafter placed in a psychiatric facility, forced on drugs, and then, while in the facility, signed over control of his estate to what Lisa detailed as predatory lawyers. That list of “predators” is long, and despite many trips to court to fight them, the lawyers continued to prevail.

Yes, Sometimes It IS All About the Money

At the time of his taking, Mr. Siegel’s known assets exceeded $6 million. During the past six years, attorneys drew off more than $4 million in what they termed as caring for the senior. A large chunk of that money was spent on round-the-clock home health care. But the numbers included more, much more.

Indeed, a review of the finances showed certain attorneys drawing tens of thousands of dollars and more, quarterly from the estate, with some racking up more than $200,000 in billing, and at attorney rates over a wide range, including some at more than $450 per hour.

For their fees they answered e-mails from one another, paid Mr. Siegel’s bills, ensured that he had his trash removed, the utilities bills paid, grass mowed, repairs made, and all the normal things to keep a household going.

With the signing over of his estate, Mr. Siegel lost all control and was appointed a guardian and other lawyers who managed his affairs. He was force-drugged without his knowledge to keep him complacent, and he began a long, slow decline, according to multiple court documents and written and oral testimony and writings by some of his family members.

Our guest tonight is Lisa Belanger.  After a seven year battle to free her father from a predatory guardianship, on January 28, 2019 Lisa issued an alert that the guardians were attempting to put her father Marvin Siegel into hospice.  The message was clear…Marvin’s estate had been successfully depleted to a great degree, ( they claim there might be a balance) by the guardians and attorney’s. These same professional predators refuse to give a current accounting of where the estate stands now.

Having no further value to them, hospice was the clear choice for hastily ending his life.  Lisa was successful in stopping that effort.  but somehow his death appears to have been hastened, none the less.

Despite Lisa’s ongoing efforts, her father passed away on March 15, 2019.  But the questions remain.  Marvin’s estate had been valued at 9 million when he was taken hostage in the probate/guardian system.  What could these predators possibly have done for him over the last seven years that would have cost 9 million dollars?  He was held prisoner in his own home.  Denied contact with his own children and grandchildren until just recently, and drugged incessantly against his will.  During this time his assets were liquidated, real property re-titled to the predators, and valuable personal property simply disappeared.

So what happens when the “ward” dies?  Join us as we attempt to discover just what happens once the “ward” is deceased and can’t be used anymore to justify the theft of the estate?

 

 

 

Hospital Sponsored Guardianships: Another threat to the elderly, disabled and children

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

“In the event that your family member or friend is being targeted by the hospital you do have a few options that may be of help, according to various BAR Union members. Of course these things are usually only available if you received due notice of hearing of the intention of the hospital to take your family or friend, prisoner. Still, filing these motions could stall out what is sure to be a dangerous state of affairs for the individual targeted.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As if the guardianship scams that target the elderly, children, the disabled and those chronically ill, most especially when there is a sizable estate involved by legal predators and equally predatory professional guardians was not enough, the medical industry is now entering into the game. Hospitals, whose only function is to care for the sick, are now openly engaging in the capture and hostage taking of individuals whom they claim are incapacitated. Never mind that their actions most likely caused any actual incapacity. Or most often, what is nothing more than a fraudulent statement claimed by those involved that an incapacity exists, when in fact, no evidence can be provided or will be provided to substantiate the claim.

In any of the instances sighted above, simply asking for a second opinion, or disagreeing with the doctors on types of treatments, medications or other intended services, can trigger a hospital initiated guardianship. In the case of children, disagreeing with doctors about diagnosis, treatment or other measures can result in the medical kidnapping of the child by the hospital.

In virtually all of these medical kidnappings for profit, no due process is observed and no notice of hearing is served. The individual is now a virtual prisoner taken hostage by the hospital, the doctors and the attorney’s. The guardianship is granted before anyone can object and the newly reclassified medical prisoner only finds out about their new classification, after the fact. They can no longer speak for themselves, refuse damaging medications, vaccines, surgeries or other needless or harmful interventions all predicated upon the bottom line profits of the hospital. The medical kidnappings are not about protecting the life of the medical prisoner, but rather leveraging the situation so that the hospital continues to profit. Once the deadlines loom on Medicare and Medicaid, or other insurance, the hospital will move quickly to ensure that their bottom line stays in the black, even if it is detrimental to the life of the patient.
