I predict this is only the tip of the iceberg! Apparently there is no control of this situation with only random and rare surveys by the DHH(due to underfunding by govt)! The new secretary of DHH needs to realize that a dollar spent on surveying these sitting services will result in probably a hundred-fold savings! Some of these people that are employed as 'sitters' brag about getting paid to sit with their relatives--in some instances mothers being paid to sit with their own children! OMG, what ever happened to personal responsibility! Our country is being consumed by a majority of citizens that think they are ENTITLED to everything, from food stamps, housing, free medical care, free checks every month to now being paid to take care of their own family members! I hear a big swooooosh sound coming--that of the U.S. being consumed from within! Too many citizens receiving entitlements and too FEW working, tax-paying citizens!
OH, and I'll save for another day--our country's leaders sitting here while all our jobs, from customer service providers to our highly-prized manufacturing jobs-----JOBS been shipped out of this country while we have sat here with our fingers stuck in our ..........well, you get the picture! Just a crying shame--the strongest and most successful country ever--melting in the wake of entitlements!!!! so sad....

Aint nobody picking on her, I know the details...there were charges made to the state that were paid, for services that were not done...they would ride around and pick people up come with us we will feed you and play dominos just give us your social number, then turn around and charge government as if they were patients in need of expensive care...after they had that persons info they continued to charge for then even when they were not present...that is the facts you can go tell your minister that...they are in alot of hot water here and it's not for no reason

Cookie herself had a stroke and had been unable to tend to her business herself. This was mismanagment by her employees, but because the business is in her name she will fall with them all.

Were the employees being wrongfully paid by Medicare? No...cookie might have had a stroke and not been able to watch her books but the employees would not take the initiative to scam medicare for cookies financial gain, this was policy set in place by the one person that would benefit from this and that would be cookie...

Cookie having a stroke is news to me! We sure haven't missed seeing her around! I have been trying to protect my parents from her since 2000. It is very difficult to get the proper authorities to investigate. Apparently there are plenty laws but you can hardly get anyone's attention, much less, get them to investigate. Many people will not stand up for what is right and keep their mouths shut. Thank goodness for prayer! That is all that has kept my family intact through this ordeal we have been going through. Thanks for your prayers and please keep praying for us. Let's see what GOD can do!

I have been thinking about Cookie having a stroke. I think someone got their story wrong. She did not have a stroke. That was a butt lift.
