FATE continues to report abuse violations to the proper authorities and initiate advocacy action to improve care of the elderly. Additionally, FATEs objective is to bring about national reforms and enforce the laws governing homes for elderly.

The Silver Standard: Is That Really What You Voted For?

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

From the Editor’s Desk

 

In most states, if a son, a daughter, or a caretaker:

locks Mom up in her bedroom, blocks her access to the telephone, withholds her personal mail, and refuses to allow her to see her friends and members of her family, that’s a crime, and the perpetrator(s) may be criminally charged, tried, and convicted of elder abuse. But, if Mom is under guardianship, and her guardian forces her into a nursing home against her will and the will of her family, denies Mom a phone, and isolates her from her friends, family, and loved ones, that’s considered “care.”

Guardians currently have the power to isolate the very people whose lives they are supposed to be caring for and protecting. They can do this without the knowledge of the court and without having to justify their actions. In fact, isolation provides an effective and commonly used weapon to wield against any family member who complains about a guardian or the guardian’s decisions.

When a professional or private guardian abuses a person under his or her control, defining it as “protection,” that guardian is immune or quasi-immune from prosecution.

Much to their credit, every member of both the Rhode Island Senate and House of Representatives voted yea to the NASGA~Falk Coalition bill criminalizing wrongful isolation and expanding the definition of “caretaker” to include court-appointed guardians and conservators as well as attorney-in-fact.  This was an absolutely huge step forward in the protection of Rhode Island’s current and future senior population, which is the 11th highest in the country at 16.8 % of their total population.

The bill then went to the desk of Governor Gina M. Raimondo, who after some tweeting in her ear by some of her favored “special interest” birdies, chose to veto the bill.

Those birdies were: More

Missing in Southfield, Michigan: Gretchen Hammond…journalist documenting probate abuses

2 Comments

This is extremely disturbing news, EVERYONE, and a CALL TO ACTION. Below is a December 27, 2018 post about Gretchen Rachel Hammond, an American journalist who reportedly went missing in Southfield, Michigan, on or around December 20, 2018.

“I am posting on behalf of Gretchen Rachel Hammond family who are very worried about her. They have not heard from her for nearly a week and she did not come home for Christmas. They have reached out to her friends in Chicago and the folks she was working with in Detroit and they do not know where she is. Her cell phone goes to voicemail. The last time she reached out to them, she said she was heading to the library in Southfield Michigan. That was on December 20. Please reach out to me if you have any information.”

This development follows the post below by Gretchen about news of a threat she received.

If you know anything, please let us know at “The Face of Vulnerability” — https://www.facebook.com/TheFaceOfVulnerability — and we’ll forward the information to Mary Spaler who circulated the above missing person alert.

Gretchen Rachel Hammond

My source at the Probate Court reached out to me yesterday to let me know that I am now in considerable danger. They did not specify what “danger” entails: an attempt to discredit me before the story is published, the use of the Oakland County Sheriffs to concoct a reason to throw me behind bars (a tactic already used on a rather outspoken activist) or something quite worse. A physical attack was not ruled out. The point is, they have had quite enough of me and, if this were any other time, one might easily laugh it off.

My team is safe. I have managed to keep them completely anonymous. My research, that includes court documents, accounts, interviews and all relevant data, is also in trusted hands on both coasts via continually updated and mailed flash drives and I’m building alliances across the country on a daily basis.

“These are extremely powerful people,” I was told. “You have become radioactive to them so you need to do something about your security. There is a lot at stake here for a lot of people so make sure you take precautions.”

Anyone reading this has become a part of my heeding such a warning and I would ask you all to somehow ensure the following is protected via safety in numbers: My name is Gretchen Rachel Hammond. I am a journalist investigating systemic elder abuse and exploitation at the Oakland County Probate Court in Michigan. My team’s discoveries thus far have entered the realm of the horrifying. Thousands of elderly and vulnerable lives are in ruins or extinguished. Their homes have passed through the the hands of a disturbing group of people.

And I will not stop until this story is in print.

The Silver Standard: Legal information about Financial Elder Abuse and involuntary Guardianship for your state.

Leave a comment

Editor’s note:  The Silver Standard is building one of the most useful, documented and resourced webpages for educating families and seniors on the risks and rights of the elderly and their families.  Be sure to join this site for up to date, relevant information on the state of the elderly in YOUR state. 

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

The Silver Standard News

On the EARN website under “State Info,” There is a drop-down list where you can find all the legal information about Financial Elder Abuse and involuntary Guardianship for your state.

As we researched each state, a question arose—though the public chooses those who will represent their interests and safety and, through one manner of taxation or another, pay the salaries of those representatives as well as Attorney Generals, Judges, and District Attorneys, why is there so little concern shown for the senior citizens in so many states? It is particularly perplexing given the fact that those very senior citizens are, more often than not, paying the largest share of the taxes and casting the largest share of the votes.

Over the next year, we will compare all 50 states, each month we will carry forward the state that was the best in the previous month’s comparisons, to see…

WHO IS DOING THEIR JOB.

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release, August 30, 2018

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

“Teresa Kennedy explained, “Over the last two years I’ve reached out to the offices of Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Judge Terrence R. Perkins, Secretary Mike Carroll of the Florida Department of Children and Families, among others. No one has stepped up to help because there was a Judge involved,” She added, “Now that OPPG is investigating Caldwell, we hope they use the full weight of their power to take significant disciplinary action.”

PALM COAST, FL – Today marks the two-year anniversary of the abduction of Dr. Lillie Sykes White in one of the most egregious elder exploitation cases in Florida. An overview video can be viewed at http://www.elderdignity.org. Dr. White’s only living sibling, 82-year-old Columbia University-trained journalist Janie Sykes-Kennedy, has been blocked from seeing her sister for 730 days, and Dr. White’s fifty-plus nieces and nephews also don’t know her whereabouts. While she is being sequestered in an undisclosed location, a team of attorneys, including three agents appointed by the Flagler County Court, have spent and/or are billing upwards of $1 million against her assets. It follows the “Isolate, Medicate, Steal the Estate” pattern that has been documented in fraudulent elder guardianships across the country. It has been equated to Nazi Germany and modern-day slavery—seniors are taken and isolated for the sole purpose of financial exploitation. More
