First, Marilyn does not have a formal Alzheimer’s diagnosis but rather vascular dementia, which is hardening of the arteries. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the worse) she was rated by her doctors at a 1-2. The Alzheimer’s was what Higgins put on her initial "emergency" conservator application to the court, along with the lie that Marilyn was a resident in her home on Hamilton Avenue. Higgins took Marilyn to a doctor in Greenwich (who stated in court they had been personal friends for 8 years) straight off the private plane from Washington to get this “diagnosis” written for court reasons. She told the doctor that Marilyn had Alzheimer’s so the doctor noted it along with her dementia in his report. By the way, this doctor is not a specialist in this area; he is actually listed as a "general family practice".
Second, Marilyn being taken to Washington for medical care? There are absolutely no documents, no medical record and no billing for any medical care that is support of this claim. This should be thoroughly investigated before a reporter states this in her article. Yes, she improved from Washington DC because she wasn't getting adequate care in Washington DC. The Michigan doctor records support she was getting excellent care there before she was taken away.
Third, the only reason Marilyn was deemed "unable to manage her affairs or care for herself" was because Higgins had gotten this sneaky medical report in, along with her falsified court docs, in front of Hopper. Hopper had never even seen Marilyn to make his own assessment when he made this ruling.
It's too bad Grayson and Higgins won't allow Marilyn to spend her remaining years in happiness, in the place she has so longed to return, home to Michigan. It is quite sad to see they plan to continue to drag her through the court systems. As the legal fight has completely drained Marilyn’s funds from her home in Michigan. I guess the only thing they now need to fight is to keep hold of the Marilyn other assets that were put in a trust (by Higgins, who also deviously got a DPA signed) and is still being controlled by Higgins and which she has given zero money to back to her own Mother. Of course, Grayson has been paid from these trust funds...no wonder he takes the position he does. Maybe she wants to continue to drag her mother through the court systems until she finally kills her and then she can just keep the assets she has stolen.
To do this to your own Mother is beyond criminal. I do hope Marilyn does eventually get her justice
