Greed and Corruption Cause Heartbreak in Elder Abuse Cases

It has been awhile since my last article on the serious issue of law guardian abuse. The problem has never gone away, and the fact is that it still persists nationwide. I was moved to remind everyone about the hardships and horrors of people who are caught up in this. Those who perpetrate these unfair and illegal actions often have their actions overlooked, or even approved by the judges who are supposed to be protecting the rights of all citizens.

Having written mostly about the Dorothy Wilson case where, as per federal statutes, she was illegally removed from her home of sixty-plus years, my personal knowledge in other cases was limited. Since writing the other articles in this series, I have been contacted by more victims who are also enduring what Dorothy’s daughter, Diane, had to suffer through. Law guardian abuse against the elderly and the emotionally or physically handicapped is a much broader problem than the average person is aware of. If you are knowledgeable of any person in this predicament, sitting back idly while this is occurring makes you no better than the NYS Judicial Commission, Senators, attorney generals, the mainstream media, and everyone else that Diane pleaded with for help.

    So sad, Legally Exploited by the system that was put in place to protect.

  5. Brandon Says:

    I know these words are strong but I believe them in my heart. I think Dorothy Wilson's guardian is just as guilty of murder as if she'd done it with her own hands.

    Dying from shock and a broken heart is a homicide. Thank you Jim, for your hard work and to Dorothy so many family members plead for help but those who are elected to their offices run for the exit doors. Those in the protection industry are aware of their ultimate power and control. May they be forced to endure as much misery as they are forcing on others.

    Dorothy Wilson will be remembered as a victim of an out-of-control system. We need her story to be as widely publicized as possible, in the hopes of bringing awarenes to the many elders, who suffer in silence the injustices and abuses, as well as those, who have family support. eb

    Truly, Dorothy was tortured. Confined in a nursing home against her will when she didn't need to be there is torture…plain and simple.Thank you for remembering Dorothy and writing about her.

    Thank you all for your kind words. Yes, I feel that way too Brandon, that Mom's death was murder. Mom was absolutely terrified when she was locked up in the nursing home; she was literally scared to death. I made a promise to her, that she would never have go to a nursing home. But it appears that the law firm of Franchina and Giordano, Garden City, NY, had a different agenda for the elderly that they "serviced", and Mary Giordano and Judge Asarch arranged to incarcerate both my Mom and Richard Maas, Kevin's grandfahter, in a nursing home against their will. I visited Mom every day in the nursing home. She wrote letters; I wrote letters; we made phone calls; I visited senators offices. Mom was an active part in figthing for her freedom. Together, we sealed and stamped letters to the NYS Judicial System; a system, we thought , whose members were of the highest caliber, who were supposedly so well respected that they were capable of judging judges' behavior. We found out differently. There will be justice and I will continue the fight to make certain that every elderly person is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. Thank you NASGA, for your tireless efforts to end the very corrupt and lucrative business of guardianship.
