>Against Her Wishes

May 21, 2009

In 2005, my sisters secretly took my mother to an elder law attorney and obtained a Durable Power of Attorney, Health care proxy, living will with them as agents. They put the family home in a trust and had my mother make her will. They had her transfer all her money to accounts in their names.

On Christmas Eve in 2006, my mother was abducted from the only home she has known for half a century. She was taken away from the people and things she loves under false pretences by my sisters. They told her she was going to get physical therapy to strengthen her weak legs, and to do everything the facility said, otherwise Medicaid would not pay for the therapy.

At first they took her to the hospital and then kept transferring her to different nursing facilities where they were drugging her with so many drugs that she could not lift up her own head and became so weak that she was unable to walk and talk and is now permanently in a wheelchair.

I filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus to get her out of the nursing facility but my sisters filed a guardianship Petition, and instead of bringing her home, the judge appointed a temporary guardian to put her at my sisters house because my sisters said in the petition that I abused my mother (we lived in the same house for 27 years). These allegations are false and at first devastated me. However, I later found that such accusations are a common pattern in guardianships because the goal in such a proceeding is not the person’s best interest, but rather it is about how unscrupulous people get the most money out of the estate. I was never given the opportunity to present any evidence or cross examine my sisters.

Instead, my mother is being still being held incommunicado at my sister’s home in Brooklyn in a wheel chair, with no phone in her room, no money to call a cab or cry out for help. And what can she do about it?

It is more evil and sad than you could ever imagine. It is emotional torture for both me and my mother who told everyone she wants to go home to see her dog, and to die in familiar surroundings. I have not seen or talked to her for almost a year and cry myself to sleep wondering how she must be feeling about the daughters she trusted who have betrayed her. And I wonder if she thinks I let her down.

My sisters filed the guardianship Petition asking to be able to put my mother into a nursing facility for good, and to be able to evict me from the family home and sell it. All of this is against my mother’s verbal and written wishes.

>Probate Reformer Dies

February 27, 2009

>

If Gov. Rell and the General Assembly succeed at finally reforming our probate courts this year, some thanks must go to John Peters, a West Hartford lawyer who helped expose the Dan Gross tragedy.

A South Dakota native with a long legal career, Peters said he had an idea that might help free Daniel Gross through filing a longshot habeas corpus petition with Superior Court. The idea, Peters told me, was to get Gross in front a real judge.

The brash move resulted in Judge Joseph Gormley ordering Gross freed after living nearly a year in court-imposed imprisonment in a nursing home.

“A terrible miscarriage of justice has happened here,” Gormley told the courtroom. Without Peters, Dan Gross might never have emerged from the nursing home where he was held against his will.

Peters’ son said that his father died Tuesday of heart failure. He was 77.

>Seeking Whereabouts of Son

Enne Currie is praying for a just result at a mental health court hearing. A paralegal, Currie has filed numerous legal documents trying to force the system to abide by its own principles. Among these are a demand for information on the whereabouts of her son, Dirul Lewis, a Writ of Habeas Corpus, and various objections to the outrageous abuses being committed for profit or retaliation.

Lewis has been a mental patient for many years. Enne says that Dirul’s doctors experimented on him with drugs known to cause lethal interactions, including Zyprexa and Loxapine. A recent combination of drugs given in the hospital drove Dirul into a temporary coma. This combination was one that Enne, as Dirul’s conservator, had expressly objected to, but which the doctors administered anyway.

Despite over 17 years of attempts to get her son the best care possible, the mental health community continually failed Dirul. Currie even filed a lawsuit seeking to protect her son’s rights and health, but the case was dismissed because she was representing Dirul on her own.

Dirul Lewis was moved by his captors in the mental institution to an undisclosed location, and Currie’s conservatorship was cancelled. No hearing or reason was given. When Currie objected, she says she was ignored or dismissed with comments like “He’s been in this system for a long time.”

Esta Varon tells us how she was placed in a mental institution and injected with drugs because her court appointed guardian was going on vacation and did not want to leave her alone without an aide. She says she has been forced into an abusive situation by the courts appointment of a guardian and says that the motto of the guardianship is to isolate, medicate and take the estate.

Elder abuse!!! Don’t let it happen to someone you love.
Guardian and Conservator Laws are abuse of the elderly. Their motto is: Isolate, Medicate, take the estate. Seniors should beware, this could happen to you.
