Join Coz & Marti tonight as they examine the inner workings of advocacy and activism.  Guardianship, just as family court issues, the toxic environment of CPS, and other core issues in the public domain is rife with glory hogs, wannabe celebrity’s and other characters whose only real interest is in the promotion of them selves. The result is chaos as self promoters insert themselves into issues where they are neither wanted or needed.  Join us as we discuss the effects of this interference in ongoing cases and how this affects the families involved.  Learn the difference between those who blithely throw around the word “WE”, and those who actually work with others towards a goal.

You most likely have encountered one of these people. They call your phone incessantly for days on end demanding you communicate with them, because only they can help you. They email you numerous times a day and leave multiple texts on your phone. Why won’t you talk to them? They want all your contacts, especially political connections and the most prized connection of all!~~ MEDIA! Lord how they love the camera! Or to see their name in print.

PS:  Yes we know we are going to be attacked for even daring to broach this subject.

TAKE OUR COVID-19 GUARDIANSHIP/NURSING HOME SURVEY!: The Coronavirus Pandemic has laid bare a great many injustices in the United States. None more so than the tragedy that is taking place in America’s nursing homes, assisted living and long term care facilities.

If you already had a loved one in guardianship/conservatorship, or if a guardianship/conservatorship has been imposed by a probate/family court since January 2020 — or if you just have a loved one in long term care and are concerned for their safety, we want to hear from you!

Night of the Ottholes

Join us tonight as Austin Gibson joins the show to tell how the Ottholes recently devoured her home. The Ottholes have a rapacious appetite and are never satisfied.

Real life zombies walk among us in Pennsylvania. To hide their decay and soulless existence, they dress themselves up to look like normal people. They aren’t!! One of these Ottholes could be standing right next to you disguised as a judge, an attorney or a professional [predator] guardian, all of whom prey on the public for sustenance.

These Ottholes suck the life out of the community, preying on the elderly, liquidating assets, seizing homes and selling them for profit. Known for their proclivity for stealing the products of someone elses life’s work, they fatten themselves on the estates of those they sink their claws into.

NASGA Press Release: National guardianship abuse awareness organization applauds Michigan Lt. Governor’s decision to replace State Public Administrator

Leave a comment


December 2, 2019                    For Immediate Release

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

As both an advocate for victims of guardianship abuse and legislative change nationwide, the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse (NASGA) commends Michigan Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist’s decision appointing Katharyn Barron as State Public Administrator as a hopeful step in the right direction in a state which has been plagued with horrific abuses of constitutional, statutory and human rights of individuals under guardianship and their families allegedly committed by County Public Administrators and Probate Court Judges for the past 30 years.

Although the November 22 announcement by Attorney General Dana Nessel curiously omitted any mention of former State Public Administrator Michael Moody, who held the position for over eight years, NASGA Community Outreach Coordinator Gretchen Rachel Hammond says the decision to replace him is long overdue.

Prior to joining NASGA, Hammond was an award-winning investigative journalist who published an August, 2019 groundbreaking five-part series detailing alleged abuses by now-former Oakland County Public Administrators in over 2,000 cases. The articles noted that Moody had been consistently unresponsive to complaints by desperate families who reached out to him stating that public administrators, acting as guardians and conservators, were isolating, abusing and stealing from the estates of seniors and developmentally disabled individuals placed under Oakland County Probate Court guardianship often after petitions filed by agencies such as Michigan’s Adult Protective Services which were not accompanied by any corroborating medical evidence.

Probate Watch is made up of group of people whose lives and loved ones have been impacted by probate court guardianships. We are looking for others to help lobby our legislatures and state organizations to drive change. We need help to show the need for additional legislation to protect our seniors, respect their rights and show how existing laws are being violated.

 

Please take our guardianship survey:

 

We are collecting data through an on-line survey to identify areas where there needs to be reform in the guardianship/conservatorship system. The survey is designed to collect statistics supporting the need for reforms and also provide details on how seniors and families have been affected. Your input is valuable to us and we encourage you to participate.

Lawsuit: Nursing home allowed man to bleed to death, then employee stole his phone

Daughter says her dad “was doing really well” until alleged negligence contributed to his death.

By Stephanie Zimmermann

Jaime Hernandez, 66, of Bolingbrook, died Oct. 25, 2018, at a Forest Park nursing home. Provided photo
The family of a Bolingbrook man who was left alone to bleed to death in a nursing home —and then had his iPhone swiped from his room after his body was removed — is suing the facility for negligence.
Jaime Hernandez, 66, was recuperating at an Aperion Care facility in Forest Park after getting a kidney transplant at the University of Illinois-Chicago Medical Center a month earlier.
He’d waited seven years to receive a new kidney and all signs were looking good, said his daughter, Maria de Lourdes Gutierrez.
“He was doing really well,” Gutierrez said.
Gutierrez took her dad for a regular appointment with his UIC doctor on Oct. 25, 2018, then brought him back to the nursing home at 8200 Roosevelt Road, where he had been staying for 17 days.

Proactive Legislation And The Inclusion Of Seniors In Our Society Are Steps To Protecting Them Against Predators

Proactive Legislation And The Inclusion Of Seniors In Our Society Are Steps To Protecting Them Against Predators

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A disturbing aspect of an  elder law and trusts and estates practice is the discovery of elder abuse. According to the National Institute on Aging, hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited each year. Elder abuse includes physical, emotional, and sexual abuse in addition to neglect and abandonment.  The perpetrators are often relatives or friends who have influence over the individual who may be vulnerable due to illness, disability, or age. Sometimes the abuse occurs at the hands of caregivers, whether in the home or in a facility.

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has introduced bipartisan legislation to help protect the elderly and infirmed by improving health care worker hiring practices in long-term care and medical facilities. Too often the elderly and infirmed are harmed as a result of the individuals working in the very facilities that are charged with helping rehabilitate them.

The Promote Responsible Oversight and Targeted Employee Background Check Transparency for Seniors Act, also known as “PROTECTS,” is an act that would expand access to the National Practitioner Data Bank for Medicare and Medicaid providers to conduct background checks on employees. Specifically, PROTECTS would include Medicaid/Medicare-certified skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, hospice programs, and pharmacies.

The Act has been endorsed by the American Health Care Association and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice. The aforesaid Data Bank would reveal malpractice for potential employees and assist facility administrators in their hiring and consequently affect the standards of care.

Judge: Guardian must return $3.8 million in Gadsden case

1 Comment

By William Thornton
An Etowah County woman will end up returning more than $3.85 million to her mother’s estate as the result of a judge’s ruling.
The case, decided last month in Etowah County Circuit Court, dealt with the conservatory and custodial duties of a woman appointed co-conservator of her mother. Circuit Judge George Day Jr., ruled that the woman, who has not been charged with any crime, “breached her fiduciary duty to her mother’s Conservatorship estate, has failed to properly account for her actions and the funds and assets under her control, all of which has caused substantial damage” to the estate.
Additionally, the Court awarded a judgment against the daughter in relation to the custodial accounts for the incapacitated woman’s granddaughter, totaling $393,509.
Chris Hamer and Rebecca Wright of the Hamer Law Group represented the incapacitated woman’s conservator, an attorney who was appointed after the daughter resigned as conservator. The case has also generated a federal court action.
“This case represents the most egregious breach of fiduciary duties we’ve ever seen,” Hamer said in a statement. “Cases involving misappropriation and misuse of assets by family members appointed as fiduciaries are especially distressing for all involved.”
As a result of the decision, all money in the estate has been accounted for, attorneys said. According to court documents, the daughter of the incapacitated woman became conservator of her then-77-year-old mother in 2014. The woman, who died earlier this year, had 12 children.

Tampa Bay area hospitals seeking to strip away patients’ rights, I-Team investigation finds

1 Comment

Posted by NASGA

 

 

 

 

By: Adam Walser

TAMPA, Fla. — Hospitals across the Florida are paying lawyers to go to court to take away patients’ rights, a three-month I-Team investigation uncovered.

I-Team Investigator Adam Walser found hospitals in Orlando, Miami, West Palm Beach, Naples and other Florida cities paying private attorneys to file hundreds of court petitions to put patients into guardianship.

An I-Team review of state court records found:

  • Tampa Bay area hospitals, including those owned by Baycare, AdventHealth and HCA, went to court to put more than 100 patients into guardianship since 2017 alone.
  • Tampa General Hospital filed five nearly identical court documents seeking guardianship for patients, describing each as having “disorganized thinking and poor cognition.” A hospital spokeswoman said TGH spent $28,000 on guardianship cases so far in just 2019.
  • An attorney for Florida Hospital Altamonte requested guardianship for a patient because her “Kia Soul that was almost paid off… may be repossessed.”

Tampa guardianship attorney Gerald Hemness questioned hospitals’ widespread use of guardianship.

“Certainly, missing a payment on a car doesn’t seem like it would be a financial emergency,” said Hemness. More

Ohio Confronts Elder-Fraud 

Leave a comment

StopProbateFraud.com

October 18, 2019 —For immediate release.

Steubenville, Ohio

Team Reporting from www.stopprobatefraud.com

 

Facing the glare of the elder-fraud spotlight, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (left) is sending his top experts to address the problem in a  Steubenville public forum.

Titled “Protecting the Unprotected” the forum will be held from 12:30  pm to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Towers Building, 500 Market Street, in the 2nd floor conference room.

Ohio has battled elder-fraud for years, and the state is again in the hot-seat due to a racketeering case brought by Dr. Mehdi Saghafi from Cleveland. A racket is a crime at both state and federal levels and can be spotted when the those billing to “fix” or “manage” a  problem are the same people that caused the problem in the first place.

Dr. Saghafi’s claim is that his family was the victim of financial exploitation when his 80-year old wife was trapped in the legal maze of a court-ordered guardianship. The family claims that once  “captured” in the court system, attorneys and accountants targeted the family’s assets and  billed the family hundreds of thousands of dollars for the ”care” of his wife.

Just months before that racketeering suit was allowed to proceed,  there was the FBI investigation of Ohio Judge Diane Vettori-Caraballo (shown   left). The judge was indicted and pled guilty to charges stemming from her theft of over $100,000 from an estate for which she was the court-appointed administrator. For more on that story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gD

Ohio is not alone in the fight against fraud. Weeks ago, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel fired four of her state’s probate administrators after complaints that the attorneys had used their court-power to drain the assets of estates they controlled. See this link for  details: https://wp.me/p9585T-fH

Over the summer, Florida’s probate system made national headlines when court-appointed guardian Rebecca Fierle (right) was accused of causing the death of a man who was in her care by issuing a “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) order—without informing or getting the consent of the man who was “not to be resuscitated.” For more on this fraud story, go here: https://wp.me/p9585T-gt

Yost’s Steubenville event features nearly a dozen speakers including four with state-wide experience in elder-fraud investigation and prosecution: Sylvia Pla-Raith; Kevin Barbeau, CFE; Michael Kaizar, CPA CFE; Kelly Igoe, JD. The session offers residents of the region a place to meet and learn about the “red flags of fraud” from Ohio’s experts in elder financial fraud.

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) calls fraud “theft by deceit,” and “theft with a smile and is prosecuted every day across the USA. But in cases where the “mark” or victim is an incapacitated and/or elderly person, the issues can expand from simple fraud into a RICO and civil rights cases.

“Many people don’t know that there are thousands of people in guardianships in Ohio,” says Rosanna Miller (shown right  with her father, Clair) who is a member of the advocacy group  “Ohio Coalition to End Probate Corruption” (OCEPC). The Ohio coalition is just one of nearly a dozen grass-roots groups across the United States who  fight guardianship and elder financial abuse including  NASGA,  AAAPG and VGPR.

New federal elder-care legislation (U.S. H.R. 4174) details that there are approximately 1.3 million elderly adults in the United States who have their lives controlled in a guardianship.  These vulnerable adults have amassed roughly 50 billion dollars in assets. These figures will get bigger with the aging of the “boomer” generation and the rise in life-expectancy.

The Steubenville forum is designed to help people learn how to spot and stop fraud from the best and brightest in the area of elder fraud prevention and prosecution. The speakers will detail the warning signs of elder financial exploitation and financial crimes and give attendees tools and strategies to assist victims of financial exploitation.

In addition to the state-level experts, there will be local Jefferson-County speakers as well, including Sheriff Fred J. Abdalla; Jefferson County Attorney Jane Hanlin; Marie Holt, Ericka Kirkpatrick and probate Judge Joseph Corabi.  The forum is designed to give people in the community a local contact when they need expertise in the elder financial fraud area. Q&A sessions are expected, time permitting.

The event is free but the room holds only 125 people. Please use this link to pre-register:

Join us this evening as Gretchen Rachel Hammond returns!  We have  lot to talk about!

We will be discussing the do’s and don’ts of survivors of guardianship abuse and, the failure of agencies to act when a crime is reported to them with evidence.  It would appear, it is only a crime if someone outside the inner circle does it.  If it is one of these tribunal participants like probate examiners, guardians, attorneys and others who routinely traffic the elderly and disabled through these kangaroo courts, nothing will be done.  The police won’t respond, nor will any agency whose sole existence is supposed to be making sure these things don’t happen no matter who does it! Obviously if you are connected to these rackets no one will make a move against you.

Gretchen will also speak about her new position with the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse (NASGA) where she will head up Community Outreach.  After her year long investigation on the massive abuses taking place in Michigan probate tribunals, Gretchen is off on a new endeavor!

After successfully taking down members of the judicial and legal community, assisting in the prosecution of more than 300 Catholic priests, Kathleen Kane was incessantly attacked with the intention of destroying her career for daring to do her job.  Possessing emails from judges who had engaged in sending discriminatory emails based on race and gender, along with pornographic materials, Kane became Judicial Enemy #1 in Pennsylvania.  Vowing she would take down the “good-ol’-boys” network that has turned the legal and judicial system in Pennsylvania into a modern day version of Capone’s Mafia….Kane was eventually imprisoned by one of the same judges she had been exposing.  Does anyone besides us see a conflict of interest here??

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?

Marcia Southwick will return to the show to give a summary of the state of New Mexico, adult legislations for 2013.  Marcia also publishes, Boomers Against Elder Abuse on Facebook.  This group is growing each day and heading towards 35,000 members.

In response to the exposure of the corruptive practices now being exposed in probate and family courts, many interested “stakeholders”……such as Guardianship associations, the BAR association, and many in the medical complex are leaning on state legislatures to expand their death grip on the elder community, and to make legal the theft of estates, the stripping of rights and the willful ignoring of standing state statutes meant to protect the victims from the predators.

Some of these new laws seem to heading backwards, but a few are good.

Issues are things like Due process, the role of guardian ad litem, Mediation, guardian background checks, guardianship financial authority, ward’s rights–etc. There are maybe 5 or so states to highlight, including New Mexico, Texas, Tennessee, Idaho, and Nevada.

In New Mexico, insanity has taken over.

Elder abuse: Monterey County Public Guardian denies right to attend hearings

January 27, 2014

The Monterey County Public Guardian seized control of San Francisco resident Margarita Zelada and her estate.  Since March 3013, Margarita has been unlawfully confined in Monterey County, forcibly isolated, and denied nearly all contact with loved ones and advocates.

The Public Guardian allows Margarita no contact with her daughter, occasional brief contact with her niece in Texas, no contact with elder rights advocates, and no contact with legal counsel of her choice.  The Public Guardian denies Margarita her right to attend court hearings on her case and denies her right to oppose the abuse she has suffered.

On January 29, 2014, the Monterey County Probate Court will review Margarita’s case and hear the Public Guardian’s petition for authority to forcibly administer chemical restraint. Niece Bonnie Lind repeatedly asked that Margarita be allowed to attend the hearing on her case and be allowed her right to oppose forced chemical restraint.

December 10, 2013

Jennifer Empasis and Chris Campbell,

I would like to request my aunt, Margarita Zelada be allowed to attend her conservatorship hearing scheduled for December 18, 2013.  According to the Notice of Conservatee’s Rights, Margarita has a right to take part in important decisions affecting her life, property and way of life.  Please do not deny her this basic right.

Ohio, a state rife with probate abuses and predatory guardians, has another case you just cannot believe took place.  Between stolen property, funds and fraudulent POA’s, an elderly woman with Alzheimer’s was robbed of a million dollar estate.

Her daughter fought back.  The result?  The family home, built by the family,  on valuable shorefront property was intentionally reduced to rubble.  Even with the known threats that this would happen if the daughter didn’t back off, the courts and law enforcement did nothing.

Just goes to show you what a crooked attorney and an immoral probate can accomplish when no one holds them accountable.

Florida is a Zero-Tolerance State for Human Trafficking? Not really!

9 Comments

new-logo25Marti Oakley               (c)copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved

__________________________________________________________

Florida zero-tolerance for human trafficking intentionally omits professionals who prey on the elderly for profit.

In tracking the rampant organized criminal activity across the country with regards to the abuse of elderly individuals [with assets] who are targeted by professional predators working within the probate system, Florida jumps to the forefront in the abuse, exploitation, and looting of personal assets of the info 2elderly. While Florida may have been at one time, the most desired state to retire to, it is now the preferred hunting grounds of professional predators who operate within and with the cooperation of the probate court system. This is human trafficking for profit.

From the Attorney General’s website:

“Contrary to some misconceptions, human trafficking crimes do not require any smuggling or movement of the victim,” says the Department of Justice on its website.

Florida’s status as a hub for human trafficking has state officials pushing a “zero-tolerance” policy toward criminals who exploit others for profit.

“It’s important to me because this is a crime against humanity, it’s truly modern-day slavery,” State Attorney General Pam Bondi said in an interview.

These should be comforting and reassuring words, and for the most part I presume that most find them so. Still, I wonder why Attorney General Bondi refuses to even acknowledge another form of human trafficking rampant not only in Florida, but across the nation. The trafficking of the elderly who committed what must be the new crime of, aging with assets. This is also a massive crime against humanity and which not one attorney general in the United States, including the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, will address.

Human trafficking professionals

Human trafficking affects human beings of all ages under numerous guises. We are all familiar with the global sex trade involving men, woman, and children, both male and female, of all ages. Florida it seems is a hot bed of human trafficking and not all of it is for sexual exploitation. In the mix of perverts, pedophiles, sadists, rapists and torturers and willing traffickers is a little known group of active predators known as professional fiduciaries, attorneys and probate judges whose stock and trade is the trafficking of the elderly w/assets] with one objective: looting the estates of the elderly while violating the civil rights of the targeted individual and regardless of the emotional or physical cost to the victim. These known predators are at work in every state targeting individuals under the guise of “protection” and then availing themselves of the victims assets.

Florida is not an isolated incident of elder abuse for profit. The GAO reports that across the nation, predatory fiduciarys steal an estimated 2.6 billion annually from aging seniors, laying claim to estates and all the financial and personal assets of the now imprisoned and isolated victim. Adult Protective Services, a national collection of state agencies, is supposedly there to protect vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect, exploitation and other threats. Instead, it is predicated upon a quota system that is directly linked to their agency expenses. Federal and state funding is formulated based on the number of victims claimed as “clients” in every quarter. And each and every quarter the quota is increased.

If the real intentions of APS was to protect vulnerable adults or the elderly, the streets are full of homeless people of all ages who need help.  These agencies step over these individuals to get to those who have assets and who can be exploited for profit”.

Eighty-year-old Gloria Bathgate found herself prisoner of a Johnston County, North Carolina guardianship just days after she arrived in the state.  Gloria was falsely imprisoned and unlawfully isolated at Oakview Commons Assisted Living Center in Raleigh.  Care in the facility was dismal.  She had several falls in the first few days and many unexplained bruises. Denied any contact with her daughter, Gloria’s physical and mental condition declined rapidly.

2007 – October 2010

Gloria enjoyed an active and sometimes flamboyant social life before moving to Raleigh.  A feisty and opinionated woman, Gloria was quick to express herself in colorful language peppered with expletives.  Her daughter, Susan Williams, still chuckles about Gloria wearing miniskirts and high heels at 77.

Living with her family since 2007, Gloria attended church three times a week and routinely played bingo at the firehouse with her firefighter grandson.  Her younger Eagle Scout grandson included her in his troop’s activities.   Gloria participated in elder activity programs most days of the week.  In the evenings, she cooked meals and helped her grandchildren with homework.

When the family planned their move from Pennsylvania to Raleigh, Gloria’s daughter Susan called ahead to North Carolina Department of Social Services (DSS).  North Carolina DSS told Susan that Gloria would have to establish residency in Raleigh before DSS would process any requests for services.

October 24, 2010

Gloria moved to Raleigh with her daughter and family.  Susan immediately called Johnston County DSS to request Medicaid, a hospital bed, elder day programs, and transportation assistance for Gloria.  DSS told Susan there could be a two-year wait before services were available.  DSS added, “If you wanted all those services, you should have stayed in Pennsylvania.”

Shannon West from Johnston County DSS visited the home and told Gloria she could receive services more quickly if she moved into Oakview Commons, an assisted living facility.  Gloria objected to leaving her family, but West assured Gloria that she could sign out of Oakview any time she wished.  Susan convinced Gloria to move into Oakview temporarily to obtain services.  Shortly before Halloween, Gloria signed herself into Oakveiw Commons on the advice of her daughter and Shannon West.  More

The kidnapping of Dorothy Wilson: In her own words

On Sunday, September 23, 2012 we were privileged to have Diane Wilson, daughter of Dorothy Wilson as a guest on TS Radio.  The discussion centered around the kidnapping, imprisonment and isolation of Dorothy Wilson. While isolated and moved from one home to another,  her home was mortgaged, her personal possessions sold or given away.
At one point, Bristal Assisted Living facility charged Dorothy’s estate $53,000 for one month’s stay.
Her home was used to receive a reverse mortgage for $275,000.  This, along with $2300 a month in income all disappeared with no acounting by the guardian.  Two years after Dorothys’ initial kidnapping, the guardian had burned through $350,000 of the estate.
On October 23, 2011 after two years of abuse, neglect and isolation, Dorothy Wilson died of loneliness and despair.  This woman who had lived a good life and had planned her retirement, had an ample income and valuable assets, was left penniless by the guardian.  At this point the guardian petitioned the court to allow her to resign as Dorothy’s guardian. Dorothy died just one week before she might have been reunited with her daughter, Diane.
This could happen to you!

Stealing David: Alta Regional Center profits from holding David captive

Published on Sep 15, 2012 by    

David Fettgather is a young man with Down Syndrome. He was stolen from his family and put in board and care in 2005 by corrupt Alta Regional Center.  David’s monetary value in the predator based system of guardianship, is huge.

A consent form was placed in front of David by an unscrupulous and immoral individual.  David, who is unable to read or write and not able to consent to anything made several scratches on the document.  These scratches were used to say David had consented to being held in the Alta Regional Center.  They profit from taxpayer money by holding him captive.  David had no concept of what the document was, nor did he understand that the scratches he had made would be construed to mean he had consented to anything.

The family hired a Guardian to intervene for David. But the Guardian who also profits from David’s captivity, colluded with Alta.

A Heartbreaking Story of Elder Abuse and Legal “Thievery”: PART 1

Jim Fargiano 

_____________________________________________

Until relatively recently, I was unaware of how rampant elder abuse is within the legal court system.  For almost the last two decades, my life has been consumed by helping as many people as I could in a different way than most give help.  I have informally counseled and helped thousands of people through the publishing of my book, as well as in private sessions as a medium/psychic.  It was not until my good friend started to share her story with me that my eyes were opened to something far more prevalent than I was cognizant of; at least on a conscious level.

I have been privileged to know Diane for over five years.  During that span, she has never been anything but helpful, loving and compassionate to everyone.  More

Dorothy Wilson: another New york victim of predatory guardianship

Dorothy Wilson is 85 years old and suffers from early dementia. She is not a stroke victim or in a wheelchair, and she does not need to be washed or bathed. She cleans and cooks for herself.   

I applied for guardianship in December, 2008, but my siblings fought this.  In March, 2009, a geriatric “care” manager and guardian were assigned to my mother and she was declared incapacitated.  An order was issued for an aide in her home 24/7, but soon arrangements were made for Mom to stay with family on weekends.  Restricted pickup and return times were ordered, and although I requested relief many times, but the judge refused to allow it. His decision was based on the care manager’s assertion that 9am on a Saturday to pickup and 9am on a Monday to return is the only time the agency, Home Companion Services of Port Jefferson, will allow.      

One aide soon became Mom’s friend and confidant. On September 15, 2009, the care manager  went to my mother’s house with a new aide that does not drive, and ordered the other aide to leave or she would call the police. Mom insisted she did not want Cheri to leave and she was threatened as well.  The guardian claimed she did this for my mother’s “safety” although nothing had happened.   

The court has refused to allow my mother to stay with family additional days when someone is available, which is what she wants, and would save her thousands of dollars in agency fees. No one listens to her or respects her wishes. After Mom complained to me and her attorney about the violation of her privacy and HIPPA rights, her attorney advised the judge via letter on October 30, 2009. False allegations were then made against me by the guardian and the care manager. On November 10, 2009, the guardian mailed a letter to me stating that I violated the court orders prohibiting anyone from discussing costs with Mom and she imposed supervised visitation.  More

Rense & Marti Oakley – Guardianship – Theft, Looting And Murder

7 Comments

It happens everyday in every state.  Elderly or disabled individuals are kidnapped under the guise of “guardianship” by predatory guardians who then begin bleeding off the estate.

Corrupt probate judges, attorney’s, social agency workers, nursing home operators, doctors and the ever present predatory guardian, all begin hammering away at the vicitms assets until nothing is left.  The family is restrained from visitation while hearsay charges  are levied against them by the predators.  No evidence required.

IF you think this can’t happen to you, think again.  Congress is well aware of this crime.  Your state agencies, police departments, state attorney’s general, the FBI, the DoJ …all are fully informed and yet refuse to do anything to stop this theft and looting while holding an elderly or disabled victim hostage.

There is money to be made by converting a human being to chattel property!

And if a victim escapes the prison of the nursing home?  A warrant is issued for “escaped human property”…….It could happen to you.
