Join us for an expose into a local chain of frightening assisted living / hospice centers, SILVERADO SENIOR LIVING! HOUSTON, SUGARLAND, KINGWOOD, CHAMPION FOREST, you need to know this before you sign that contract and begin paying a whoppoing $7000-11,000 per month to end up in a drug induced stupor bedridden 20 hours per day as you lay in your own excrement with illegal double diapers courtesy of the lazy staff who simply can't bear to smell you--or the unfortunate souls that work 12 hour shifts in overstaffed conditions with shortages of help so severe that residents get used to missing dinner in favor of V8 juice and yogurt if they're lucky.
But whatever you do, don't complain, lest they increase your drugs, isolate you from your friends and family, take away your means of communications, divert your mail and violate your remaining civil and constitutional rights. We have live witnesses, so tune in!
Its hard to imagine a company dedicated to caring for the needs of population that could hardly be more vulnerable, the elderly with dementia and/or Alzheimer's, would be engaged in what is believed to be an outright conspiracy and/or Nationwide pattern and practice of depriving them of their civil rights for money. Exploitation! Pick up a newspaper or google elder abuse and it's not so hard to believe anymore. Silverado started with a pure concept and good direction, according to former employees, who left claiming that the quality went completely downhill, as one would expect when it went public like a chain of McDonalds' in 2011. But the stories we are hearing even daily as more people step forward, are shocking, and reveal a far more egregious practice that the World must know to avoid your loved ones being imprisoned and drugged against their will for money. Join us.

JAIDA DREYER's unmistakable country voice, bubbly personality, and eclectic, insightful songwriting scored her a publishing deal with Grammy award-winning producer Byron Gallimore (Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Sugarland) at the age of 19. In 2012, Byron announced the creation of his own label called Streamsound Records, and threw his full support behind Jaida’s career. “I’m proud for her to be our flagship artist,” says Byron. “She’s the real deal. I couldn’t feel stronger about anybody.” The album entitled I Am Jaida Dreyer has featured the popular radio singles Confessions (Of An Ex-Girlfriend) and Half Broke Horses. She credits her eclectic taste in music to her mother, who introduced her to classic artists like Kitty Wells and Hank Williams, Sr., as well as then-current hitmakers like Tanya Tucker, Keith Whitley, and Patty Loveless. As a pre-teen, Jaida also found herself drawn to a variety of singer-songwriters like Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Earle. Recently, she has had three of her songs (Dreams, This Town and Tell Me) used on the ABC hit TV show Nashville. “I originally had no aspirations to be an artist,” explains Jaida who was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario and raised in Latimer, Iowa. “Not because I didn’t want to be, I was just a realist. I knew that I didn’t sound like the female country singers I was hearing on the radio at the time, and I just figured my place was as a songwriter. I was okay with that. Little did I know that someday people would actually like my voice for the exact reasons that I thought they wouldn’t.”
