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

Minnesota Codifies Isolation of the Elderly by Predators Gaming the System

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

Numerous bills have been presented recently here in Minnesota as a result of the nursing home scandals that rocked the state. It quickly became apparent that the only people who were unaware of this looming crisis, were our state legislators. But reading through these bills, which are legislative monstrosities that are comprised of some of the most tortured and unintelligible language imaginable, it becomes readily apparent that the bills were not written by the legislators, but rather, by interested stakeholders who profit daily from the human trafficking of the elderly.

A recent change to the Minnesota Health Care Bill of Rights, looks on the surface to be a positive change for advancing the rights of those subjected to institutional health care while the estate is robbed. At first glance, it would appear that the legislature is securing the right of patients to be free from forced isolation by professional predatory guardians and conservators. But a closer examination reveals language that allows the very predators in the system, those who prey on the elderly with the intent to profit, to continue their trafficking, unimpeded

Pending the outcome of an enforcement proceeding the health care facility may, in good faith, comply with the instructions of a guardian or conservator.”

An enforcement proceeding? Gosh, I wonder how that will turn out? I would like to see an explanation of why a conservator (this person only controls the finances of the victim) would have any excuse whatsoever, for isolating the conserved individual. Guardians on the other hand, control everything and once the individual is guardianized they become chattel property. Meaning they become moveable property and goods. More
