Years of reporting yielded no action because they were not considered incapacitated and were labeled as self neglect. It took me quitting my job and depleting my savings to prove otherwise. Bottom line, they didn't die in that house...actually died happy and at peace.

Correct. Considered self neglect. Authorities didn't delve further because my grandparents weren't deemed incapacitated...major catch 22. I cleared that up though!

Sadly, the law is such that when someone would respond to the home after a concern was reported, they don't have to do more than knock on the door... offers to assist were refused...since they weren't deemed legally incapacitated, authorities could not force the issue...yes, anyone with a heart wouldn't look the other way as happened here for years...lessons learned, I hope. I
know I'm doing all I can to see that policy changes...I won't stop til it does...

I teach a course on Domestic Violence at PVCC and we cover Elder Abuse. I'd love to have you come speak to my students about your experiences and give them advice.
What you did was awesome! Thank you!
