    FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly with Carole Herman

    in Family

    Guest: Carole Herman


    After a three-year uphill battle with apathetic officials, files that mysteriously disappeared, several closures of her Aunt’s case with no action, and a pattern of stonewalling by state agencies created to protect patients from abuse and poor care, two things happened: The district administrator of the agency that licensed and monitored nursing homes was fired and Carole Herman, who fought the system for three years, founded FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly.


    Carole protects the weak, fights the powerful, demands government do its job and doctor's to fulfill the Hippocratic Oath.


    In October 2001 Carole was a Volunteer Spirit Award winner receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with FATE on behalf of the elderly and in February 2002 Carole was presented with a Resolution from the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for "her dedication and care for the elderly of our community."


    Today, FATE has affiliated organizations and colleagues fighting elderly patient's rights in Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. FATE has helped families all over the country. Civil actions have been filed on behalf of patients and their families. And the movement to illuminate and reverse the all-too-common incidents of abuse such as neglect, psychiatric drugging and criminal assaults of the elderly is growing.


    FATE fulfills a vital and increasing need of providing direct action advocacy and education that will ensure that care is received with the dignity that everyone deserves.

    Caring For Elderly Parents: Will Your Spouse Help Take Care of Yours?

    in Religion

    The Female Solution w/Naimah Latif


    Some cultures have a specific method for determining which child will take care of the elderly parents: first born son, youngest daughter, etc. But Americans leave such a thing to chance, and many couples fail to discuss this important issue prior to the marriage. When our parents age, they may need to move in with us, or we may need to become their live in caregiver. Have you and your spouse agreed how you will handle the care of your aging parents? What if your parent is ill? What if your spouse's parent is ill? How would you feel about putting your elderly parent in a home? Today we examine how to approach this very sensitive subject with your spouse, before the time comes to care for an elderly parent

    Gerald's Story: Nursing home and drug abuse of an elderly man

    in Family

    Patrice Gilgan joins us this evening to expose the abuse and drugging of her father at the hands of doctors and nursing home workers in two different facilities in Orange County, California.  The first instance of abuse both physical and with drugs occured at Irvine Cottage Board and Care where Gerald had been sent to recover from brain surgery.  Gerald was drugged within 24 hours of admittance to the home with massive doses of Haldol, Seroqel and overdosed on morphine.  There was no prescription for the morphine.  Cottage Board and Care is operated by St Joseph Hospice, a Catholic enterprise.


    At a second facility, Villa Valencia Skilled Nursing, (a St Michael Hospice and another Catholic owned  enterprise), Gerald was given 7 different drugs.  None of these drugs were to be used on brain injured or individuals suffering from dementia.  When Gerald was finally freed from this facility and hospitalized again, it took more than two weeks for him to respond due to the massive drug overload in his system.


    Videos of Gerald, and of some of the abuse he endured are available on the you tube channel;  Ireland Dallas


    Gerald Gilgan was a retired New York City Fire Fighter.  This man did not deserve this callous treatment.  No one does.  Yet it happens to the elderly every day here in the US.

    in Family

    Join us as Bruce Wiseman,  U.S. President of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, talks with us this evening about the hidden abuse of America's elderly as they fall prey to a system used to exploit, experiment and abuse them.  Drugging with psychotropic drugs, chemical restraints and electroshock await those who do not submit voluntarily to forced isolation, and the theft of their assets.  The elderly are also used for experimentation with vaccines, drugs and untested therapies.  This could happen to your mom, your dad or ......you.
