I am guessing that Silverado Senior Living is accustomed to “getting away with murder” in the most figurative sense at a minimum by the foolish way they are choosing to respond to this Application for Emergency Injunction to release Ruby Peterson, currently being held against her will and forcibly drugged with dangerous drugs (prohibited for use with elderly by FDA black box warning) as she suffers untold horrors, including at least one sexual assault in which two strangers took her to another area of the facility (knowing she could bathe on her own), stripped her nude at 93 years of age, and bathed her like a dog as she prayed to God for the humiliation to end. She cried in desperation not knowing if she would even survive until morning. These “monsters” (my opinion but well grounded in fact) want that brushed aside and never seeing the light of day. Please help ensure that Ruby’s voice is heard loud and clear so that Ruby is FREED! This could someday save the life of someone you love by stopping this quasi-criminal activity in its tracks now! Whatever you do, do not sit back and think someone else can do it for you. God gave you a voice and if you can use it for someone without one, I hope you will consider that it costs nothing to share. I do not have enough information to say this is racketeering, but it borders it. What do you call a group of professionals exploiting the elderly and imprisoning them to take their life savings, which in Ruby’s case is substantial. She and her late husband saved and lived meagerly, which is why you see the vultures trying to pick every piece of flesh off her bones before she’s even gone.

When the day comes that you can no longer care for a family member and/or loved one, nursing homes are where we usually have to place that person. We should be able to trust that they are in good hands and will receive the care the nursing home staff is being paid to give. Why, then, are all of the reports to the contrary? Why are the people who run them only concerned with the amount of money they make and not the care of their clients?
A company can only stay in business for the long term if they treat their customers well by providing quality products and good customer service. How is it then that when it comes to the actual care of a human being nursing homes do not meet those standards?
“In the past year alone, several grisly cases of abuse and neglect have come to light in New York. In one case, a nurse’s aide at West Lawrence Care Center in Far Rockaway allegedly pummeled a bedridden 80-year-old, leaving her battered, black-eyed and ultimately hospitalized.”
Are these homes doing background checks on the people they hire? Apparently not, if something like this is happening.
In order to help prevent your loved ones from ending up in one of these horrific facilities, show them how to care for themselves. Teach them about nutrition and exercise and the right supplements to take. There are many alternative health care methods out there to help people live productive lives as they age.
Watching my mother being abused by a horribly corrupt judicial system, uncaring politicians, greedy attorneys and family members that are supposed to love one another has truly been a life changing experience for me. I worked hard to save her from being placed in nursing homes. The first two times I managed to bring her home; the third time was just too much for her and the fear took her life.
My grandchildren, as young as they are, remember their great-grandma. The guardian, Mary Giordano, did everything she could to isolate my mother from them and from me. They do not yet know what happened but they will. This is not a deep dark family secret; it is America’s dirty little secret.
While for me the tears still appear at the oddest moment, the what ifs still linger in my mind and at times keep me up at night, the long lasting effects of guardianship abuse was also life changing for my daughter. It is often said that some good ultimately comes out of bad and in my Mom’s case, I believe this to be true.

Normally, as parents to young children we are concerned with protecting our little ones; whether that is from falling, the common cold, or which guardian would raise them in the event of our incapacity or passing. As our children get older and learn to protect themselves, we are often reminded that we need to look out for our other loved ones as well. So while our children are becoming more independent, our aging parents and grandparents are in need of more support and protection. We fall into that “sandwich generation” where we are caring for our children and our own parents.
