Nation Awaits Ruling in Case of 93 year old Falsely Impri...

Well no emergency injunction but we do have an emergency trial setting, so it's game on! God's got this one.  (Aug 22, 2014 | post #4)

93 year Ruby remains falsely imprisoned at Silverado Seni...

Ms. Syan Rhodes covered the hearing on the Peterson brothers' application for emergency injunction re 93 year Ruby Peterson detained and drugged against her will by Silverado Senior Living of Sugarland by the abuse of a 1993 Durable Power of Attorney by David Peterson and Carol Ann Peterson, Sugarland area counselor. Judge Wright denied the Emergency Application for Temporary Injunction to "Let Ruby Go" from Silverado's Sugarland Memory Care facility where she is being forcibly drugged with dangerous psychotropic drugs at the request of her daughter and son, both of whom perjured themselves and are abusing and exploiting her with their 1993 power of attorney which she attempted to revoke in November 2013 prior to her decline from what appears to be multi infarct dementia. Channel 11 interviewed Don Peterson and has apparently obtained a statement from Silverado, who blames Carol Anne Peterson, Sugarland Christian Counselor, based on the POA. The problem is you cannot legally detain and forcibly drug someone with a power of attorney only. Apparently, Carol Anne is pointing the finger at Silverado. There are Constitutional Claims filed in federal court for violations of 42 USC 1983 (formerly known as Klu Klux Klan Act) based on 1st and 14th Amendments and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"). Kprc interviewed the parties. Are you planning a feature? http://www.letruby go.com/ http://www.silvera dosucks.com/  (Aug 22, 2014 | post #1)

Nation Awaits Ruling in Case of 93 year old Falsely Impri...

Silverado Senior Living of Sugarland, Texas was sued on July 18th, 2014 for False Imprisonment, Conspiracy, Assault, Battery, Fraud, and other claims with the daughter and son of 93 year old Ruby Peterson, who has been held against her will and forcibly drugged with dangerous psychotropic drugs contraindicated for the elderly with an FDA black box warning--since last August of 2013 at Silverado Senior Living of Sugarland, Texas--the place that brags they don't chemically restrain, while chemically restraining. In fact, Dr. Christopher Merkl and Silverado agents testified that MEMORY CARE means DRUGGING BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, as per the prescription of Dr. Rebecca Clearman in this case. Drugging the elderly is a nationwide epidemic and more often the sign of abuse/neglect than anything else because these facilities do it for convenience sake, irrespective of the serious risk of death and adverse effects to the elderly. Psychotropic drugs are NOT to be given to the elderly but these days, who's watching? Well, we are Silverado. We are watching you speak through both sides of your mouth in front of Congress where you brag you don't chemically restrain and then do that very thing to the majority of your residents. Hypocrisy comes on the menu at Silverado Senior Living and I can hardly imagine a more barbaric existence behind that beautiful face lift, designed to deceive people into thinking it's HEAVEN when it's much closer to HELL.  (Aug 20, 2014 | post #1)

Silverado Memory care aka forced drugging by any means is...

Contrary to this frightening and unconscionable practice of drugging the elderly that seems to have overtaken vulnerable seniors and the disabled in nursing homes or other institutions, you cannot be forcibly drugged against your will or lied to and tricked to ingest drugs once you object. That is a battery, which Texas law defines as a harmful or offensive contact (which can be indirect or direct) with knowledge that the contact will be harmful or offensive. The Texas Elder Bill of Rights codifies in Texas Human Resource Code Section 106 the right to refuse drugs, already part of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, albeit not so obvious. If you have any doubts as to what your loved one's rights are, even in nursing homes under guardianship, look to this provision. It is a bit trickier to determine when a guardian is involved, though it should not be. go to silveradosucks.com  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

FB Mob VENTS against elder abuse at Silverado Senior Living

Bloomberg Financial reports the wide-spread illegal practice of Doctors receiving kickbacks based upon the volume of hospice referrals they make or number of elderly patients prescribed dangerous psychotropic drugs with FDA black box warnings advising against the use of these drugs in the elderly. Bloomberg reports these Companies sponsoring Summer Sizzles and Christmas Cash Blitz promotions for Doctors and Hospice workers victimizing the elderly and disabled to boost corporate earnings through Medicare fraud. See Bloomberg's Aunt Midge Not Dying reveals $14B Hospice Market and The Business of Preparing Americans for Death allows them to Neglect End of Life Planning. and CBS' The Big and Profitable Business of Dying. Turning to Silverado Senior Living, I am disturbed that this Houston-based Assisted Living and Hospice Chain is engaged in the same quasi-criminal activity against the elderly (albeit to lesser degrees) and bullying advocates engaged in federally protected speech--with knowingly false threats of libel suits and Temporary Restraining Orders aimed at censorship in violation of a litany of key State and Federal Constitutional mandates and Statutes. I will be clear in stating that the evidence of Silverado's questionable practices in memory care and hospice is just beginning to surface but rest assured I have witnesses who tell the same stories. I would not believe them if I h weren't representing them and witnessed it myself. Ruby Peterson's year long false imprisonment in Silverado's Sugarland facility, drugged against her will with dangerous anti-psychotics mirrors another lawsuit against Silverado for allegedly conspiring to falsely imprison Carolyn Wyatt while drugging her--for profit. her with a cocktail of dangerous drugs having the FDA black box warning against use in the elderly due to risk of death and serious complications. Another client's mother nearly died in Silverado's Kingwood facility before Silverado conveniently "evicted " her due to Sherry asking too many unwelcome questions, witnessing persistent neglect. The fact that at least 3 Houston facilities have been accused and/or sued for nearly identical torts is not surprising given Silverado's practice of rotating accused employees between its locations like "musical chairs", leaving victims deceived into a false sense of security by Silverado's outward appearance of taking action to swiftly address resident complaints. A common weapon used by Silverado against family members who ask too many questions, lodge complaints (internal and with DADS) or dare to place them under public scrutiny by exposing wrongdoing in the Court of public opinion is illegal retaliation in the form of visitation bans, threats of criminal prosecution, , and of lawsuits and Restraining Orders/Injunctions like the one I received Friday. Despite violations of federal law, the a Constitution, and disciplinary rules for threatening legal action on knowingly false grounds (for leverage), I suppose these big shots are just used to getting away with it. When State and Federal Agencies charged with enforcement do nothing, your legal rights are theoretical..unles s you get up and enforce them yourself by suing them. In the meanwhile, outrage festers in the Court of public opinion about Lawyers and Billion-dollar bullies, with the presumption that they can victimize our loved ones and push us around with frivolous threats to our livelihood. Within hours of the hearing, Silverado's attorneys were busy reading my blogs and sending me a cease and desist letter, falsely accusing me of libel. Truth is an absolute defense to libel and the Constitution forbids censorship in all but the most limited of circumstances. go to silveradosucks.com and letrubygo.com and support us  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

Silverado Senior Living Hostile Environment

LOREN SHOOK, CEO of Silverado Senior Living tells us how "LOVE is greater than FEAR" and is the philosphy that transformed his life in the tell "not all" book he and Silverado's other founding partner wrote, which makes my hurl factor escalate by the title alone. Notably, Residents and former employees take issue with that spin, saying Fear is much greater than love. This is a compilation of reviews from former employees and family members who say anything from "don't waste your time" to "run"! Enjoy: Please Don't send your loved one here. "Please don't send your loved one here. My Mom was always bruised, over medicated and constantly falling. Her last fall caused a massive brain hemorrhage which caused her death. There are other incidents at Silverado, just Google them to read about them including a murder conviction and a resident being found in a walk in freezer. Please be aware. Patty McManus, daughter of Jean Willey. We miss her and she died too soon." —Patty McManus, Tarazana CA A Fake Culture Makes A Bad Company   Marketing (Former Employee), Irvine, CA – September 18, 2013 Pros: the dogs in the communities and the dogs people bring to work at headquarters. Cons: the dogs in management.   This company was stellar five years ago. It had a vision, integrity and a strong, involved CEO who walked his talk and the walk with caregivers, maintenance workers, IT staff, nurses and clinicians, even residents with serious Alzheimer's. For some ungodly reason, probably the almighty dollar, the company blew up after being sold to a big REIT. The company's operating philosophy was "Love is greater than fear." Sadly, that turned right upside down into "Fear is greater than love". Some said the executive team around the CEO never bought into his philosophy. That makes sense given the fact they are all still there but dozens of their middle managers and a huge percentage of their line staff have departed. The revolving door is now legendary. HR is the biggest joke, going after awards for "Best Place to Work" - and then winning by intimidating their staff. I'm glad I left when I did. Do not waste/invest time in this company Scheduling Coordinator (Curre nt Employee), S Cons: the way the business is run Love over fear is their motto, money over human dignity should really be their motto. I have witness numorous lies being feed to potential clients who are interested in putting their love ones in the community, I work at. The caregivers/CNA are great, but the managment is just full of it. The only contact managments has with the workers is during tours where potential clients are shown around the Silverado community, and mangment paint their clown faces and pretend to know their employees. During this time they are extra friendly, because they see a potential sale. A Human Life should not be seen as a potential sale. All the tactics managment uses to attract potential clients is just flagitious. – less Orange County's Top Ten Places to work? I won't directly divulge my former title. (Former Employee), Irvine, CA – December 30, 2012 Pros: they have two 15 minute excerise or walking breaks per day. Cons: the other seven and a half hours. This company likes to boast that they've received the Orange County's Top Ten Places to work award for a couple of years. I don't know to whom the judges inquired because so many employees disliked working there. Of course it was all in hushed whispers for fear permeated the air. Which is ironic because their motto is "Love is greater than fear". Dameon – January 3, 2013 Money over human dignity should be their motto, I couldn't agree with you more I am sometimes ashame I work for this company. I am surronded by money hungry managers who lie to their employees and lie to families who place their love ones inside of Silverado. When I find a new job, my intentions are to find a way to bring all their lies to the surface. Posthere – June 6, 2013  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

Parade to Honor Greatest Generation in Sugarland, NOT SIL...

Join the Nationwide Movement demanding that Silverado Senior Living in Sugarland, Texas "LET RUBY GO!" You may read all about Ruby's forced captivity at Silverado as well as their widespread practice of chemical restraints aka forced or deceptive drugging against a senior's will and violating their express statements that drugs make them sick. Ruby was badly drugged until we got involved and magically, the drugs have begun to be tapered, but this facility is in my opinion "SICK" in the way they deal with the elderly and needs to be shut down! Three strikes you're out Silverado! And if we have much to say, it's done! Call Silverado and tell them to LETRUBYGO!! OR join our Sugarland Parade and let's tell the town that it's time for these licensed drug dealers to hit the road! I love parades!  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

Silverado Senior Living Sugarland Sued Human Rights Viola...

Silverado Senior Living of Sugarland was sued this week in the 129th Judicial District of Harris County, Texas, with allegations of false imprisonment, conspiracy, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress for wrongfully denying a 93-year old woman the right to leave its lock down facility. Among other allegations, the lawsuit alleges that Ruby Peterson has been forcibly drugged with dangerous Psychotropic drugs and narcotics, prevented from leaving Silverado's premises since August 23, 2013, denied access to her three sons, a phone and her mail. Ruby Peterson (93) is a long time resident and philanthropist of Baytown, Texas, where she has generously supported Lakewood Church of Christ and other community churches through her giving. Silverado Senior Living of Sugarland was sued this week in the 129th Judicial District of Harris County, Texas, with allegations of false imprisonment, conspiracy, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress for wrongfully denying a 93-year old woman the right to leave its lock down facility. Cause No. 2014-40980; Mackey Glen Peterson vs. David Troy Peterson, Silverado Senior Living of Sugarland, et al. Among other allegations, the lawsuit alleges that Ruby Peterson has been forcibly drugged with dangerous Psychotropic drugs and narcotics, prevented from leaving Silverado's premises since August 23, 2013, denied access to her three sons, a phone and her mail. Ruby Peterson (93) is a long time resident and philanthropist of Baytown, Texas, where she has generously supported Lakewood Church of Christ and other community churches through her giving. The lawsuit alleges that Ruby's troubles began when her daughter and son, Carol Ann Manley and David Troy Peterson of Sugarland, illegally procured a prescription for Seroquel from David's daughter-in-law, a San Antonio-based Geriatric Psychiatrist who has never examined Ruby. In her 93 years, Ruby has taken only one medication, Prozac, which was also procured by her daughter for depression. Though her daughter has no medical credentials, Carol Ann Manley maintains that her mother suffers from dementia, while her sons insist that their mother is of sound mind with no significant health problems beyond normal aging.Significantl y, the FDA has placed a black box warning on Seroquel against the use of this dangerous drug for elderly patients with dementia, citing the risk of death and cerebrovasular incidents. Ruby has a longstanding heart arrthmia, for which Seroquel is not recommended. The Merck Manual, Drug Categories of Concern for the Elderly andAmerican Geriatric Society Beers Criteria Update of 2012 includes Seroquel on its list of Inappropriate Drugs for the Elderly, stating that conventional and/or atypical antipsychotics should NOT be used in elderly patients suspected of having dementia unless the patient is poses a serious risk of harm to himself or others. FALSE IMPRISONMENT AND CONSPIRACY Silverado is accused of falsely imprisoning Ruby against her will in a conspiracy with Carol Ann and David, though they maintain that Ruby has the right to come and go from its "assisted living" facility just like any other patient. Since her August admission, Silverado has found a reason to deny her this right every time she has requested permission to leave, ultimately stating that Carol Ann said "no." Ruby is not permitted to leave for lunch, shopping, social events, holidays, or any purpose other than in Silverado's van. She has been repeatedly denied egress with her sons, with Mack being turned away in November from taking Ruby to his Central Texas home for a vacation as she cried with her bag packed, ready to go. go to letrubygo.com for more  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

Dorothy Wilson kidnapped and killed by system and lawyer ...

My 87 year old mother, Dorothy Wilson, was under the guardianship of Mary Giordano, of Franchina and Giordano, in Garden City, New York. The judge that has overseen the case from the beginning is Judge Joel Asarch of the Nassau County Supreme Court. My story began December 8, 2008, when I found my mother on the floor in her home in Massapequa. I arrived there that day to move in to her home part time due to some memory loss and her need for household help. I had been caring for my mother’s needs for three years since my father passed, in February 2006. She was on the floor, incontinent, and gravely ill. I called an ambulance and my nightmare began. My siblings and I do not speak due to a long family history of verbal and emotional abuse and lies and drama. My family advised me that I needed to apply for guardianship of my mother because they feared what my siblings would do to her. I had health care proxy and power of attorney. I applied, not knowing how corrupt the courts were. My intentions were twofold; to prevent her house from being sold; to never place her in a nursing home. My siblings fought it, on the basis that “I would tell my mother what to do.” A long, drawn out court battle ensued, and I was cast as the villain. According to everyone involved, including the judge, I did everything wrong. They all lied about me constantly. A reverse mortgage of $275,000 was taken out against my mother’s home in August, 2009. Judge Asarch stated, for the record, in open court, that this money, along with her monthly income of $2300, would allow my mother to stay in her home with an aide for the next five years. By August, 2011, only two years later, the money was gone. Mary Giordano had managed to spend more than $350,000. During the past three years, my mother and I were subjected to legal terror tactics. I have listed some of the things that happened during the past three years. • I was denied visitation for weeks at a time, based on false allegations that I “violated” the judge’s order. • My Mom was locked up against her will for 30 days in an assisted living facility, the Bristal in Massapequa, at a cost of $53,000 to her. No breakdown of the charges was ever provided by Mary Giordano despite my request for same. Mom was not allowed any phone contact or visits with her family for a period of two weeks. She was not allowed out of the building for Thanksgiving, shopping or even a cup of coffee. She was not allowed to attend her great-granddaughte r’s christening; denied by both the judge and the guardian. When I was finally able to see her, I recorded her pleas to take her home. I gave her a cell phone which the guardian stole from her purse. • Mom was locked up in her own home with an aide by the guardian and care manager during a number of weekends that she was supposed to be with her family, with no explanation. • Mom’s HIPPA rights were consistently violated by the geriatric care manager, who has forced her way into the doctor’s office where my mother had to disrobe in front of her. When my mother complained to me, I reported this to her attorney and a smear campaign began in earnest attack against me. The violation of her HIPPA rights continued until her death, with Judge Joel Asarch’s awareness of this egregious violation. • When Mom complained about the removal of an aide from her home that she had grown to love and who was her friend, Anne Recht, the care manager, threatened to call the police and have my Mom thrown in jail. There were two witnesses to these threats. • Court conferences were called and held over and over again for minor issues which could have been resolved with one simple phone call. see silveradosucks.com  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

Julie London Ferguson takes on the System fights for MOM

ulie is an amazing advocate, like so many others I know across the Nation! She has fought the system for more than 1 year without much progress in the “loving” venue known as guardianship. She is fighting to protect her mother against the Court’s action who nullified her Durable Power of Attorney and Estate Planning documents which were in place to “avoid guardianship” as alternatives to guardianship. Julie was given a mere 2 days’ notice of the guardianship hearing that railroaded her mother into becoming a ward of the state. Julie’s mom, Marise, was taken advantage of by a relative, which started Julie’s nightmare. see silveradosucks.com Julie’s sole mission is to protect her mother but even having durable power of attorney, it was almost impossible to “stop the financial bleeding” when so much secrecy and manipulation was exercised by Julie’s sister on her aging mother to change all estate matters and divert Marise’s estate to this felon sister. In response to Julie seeking help from Department of Family Services, there was no cooperation and no warning, but instead, Florida DFS initiated guardianship over Marise and gave Julie 2 days notice of the proceeding, certainly not enough time to prepare for such a life altering and devastating proceeding–GUARDIA NSHIP! Predictably, various agencies tell you it’s criminal and others say it’s civil. Your efforts in reporting are rewarded with a slap in the face and you are summarily dismissed for consideration because the case has already been decided before you ever came along. Why? Your loved ones are “cash cows” and generate funds for the County Guardianship Programs, whether through medicare and medicaid fraud (taking off the top and kickbacks) or through taking their estates in Court ordered trusts so that all of the vulture attorneys can begin tearing off every last piece of flesh before the person is remotely dead. Think you can trust the DFS? Ask Julie. Ask anyone? It seems as if none of these agencies have your best interest or your loved ones. I have yet to see it yet even when “ad litems” and other so called “public interest groups” are involved. Ever had a court do an audit on your loved one to count up their dollars before they’ve even looked at the medical? It’s happening every day. Think the Courts are going to give you guardianship because you have good finances, credit and no record, an upstanding citizen? Hardly. You have to be very very wise–innocent as a lamb and wise as a serpent. Because that’s who you are dealing with. Julie is trudging forward even though the DCF was initially granted guardianship of her mother. She entered the case just in time to avoid a complete disaster but she still fights to bring her mother back into her help and away from the vultures! She’s not been banned yet from visitation, but Julie has done nothing to merit any punitive retaliatory behaviors. We will keep you posted on Julie’s progress, but GO JULIE!! WE ARE WITH YOU!!!  (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)

Certified Texas Guardian thinks this is healed? Elder Abu...

WARNING this is graphic but it shows is excruciatingly painful detail in more words than I can convey how despicable our elderly and incapacitated are treated in guardianship--Nati onwide, but especially in the vulture culture of Harris County where the elderly and disabled are viewed as the property of the guardian, whose interest rarely exceeds their dollar value either via trust accounts they can bill frivolously or via the Medicaid and Medicare fraud so rampant and VA benefits the guardian has to have to maintain his or her lifestyle without you meddling families having a clue. Take a look at this foot~ This is what drugging the elderly with illegal and inappropriate black box psychotropic drugs can do to a wheel chair bound elderly woman--cause her to fall from her wheelchair and break her foot after which time Ms. Ginger Lott and Company does nothing and lets the poor woman become disfigured not to mention the pain. Why? When this woman had plenty of funds to obtain proper medical treatment, why is GINGER LOTT allowed to get away with this? Ask her Judge!  Probate Court No. 4 - Ask Sherry Fox, the veritable junk yard dog running the show. Ask her why this woman was treated worse than an animal in a shelter for the homeless? go to http://www.silvera dosucks.com for the pic    (Aug 19, 2014 | post #1)
