Some elderly persons are losing control of their own lives without ever being given the chance to speak out---everything is stolen from them "ex parte", which means it is done in a proceeding "without their presence or participation."
Even when the Elderly and Disabled are ALLOWED to participate in the proceedings, our Parents, Grandparents and Friends are considered "incompetent" for a variety of reasons, including the random act of kindness of opening their hearts and homes to the homeless and less fortunate. The term "incompetent", I've learned, is a very flexible, slippery slope, wielded as a tool to steal from those who can do nothing about it.
Inheritances are being redirected from the rightful heirs, into the system by judges that "look the other way" when loopholes are brought to their bench, while a long line of strangers pocket the life savings of vulnerable persons.
Since when is it in the "Clients" best interests to take away their freedom and their savings, only to force them into a nursing home as a ward of the state with the taxpayers bearing the costs for the balance of their life---while the court appointed Guardians, Fiduciaries, Conservators and their Lawyers put their fees in the bank?
Since when is it in the "Clients" best interests to throw their family histories, historical documents and family photos and heirlooms in a DUMPSTER?
Since when is it in the "Clients" best interests to take their family away from them by court order---leaving them in the hands of strangers who have no true interest but a financial one?
IT IS A MATTER OF LAW that no one in this great Country will have their life, liberty or property taken from them without "due process of law", yet the rights of the elderly are violated EVERY DAY!
WE WANT TO SPEAK FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
WE DEMAND THAT THE FLEECING OF OUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS BE STOPPED
WE INTEND TO BE HEARD.
