    Elder Abuse Awareness Day: Can we mention the professional predators??

    in Politics

    Today is Elder Abuse Awareness Day.  Obama announced he was making that official.  I can only imagine the media spins that are being constructed right now to cement in the public mind that it is only family and friends who abuse, neglect and exploit the elderly.


    We know better.  We know family and friends account for only 4-5 % of the abuse of the elderly.  The remainder is at the hands of professionals who game the system in order to loot the estate. But mainstream media won't even mention that!


    Tonights show will highlight many of the cases of professional predators operating within corrupt probate courts across the country that have stolen billions from the elderly while holding them prisoner in what usually turns out to be a sub-standard facility.  Forced medication, anyone?


    Please feel free to call in with your comments or questions.

    Carolyn Rosenblatt - Financial Elder Abuse Today

    in Finance

    Elder financial abuse is being called the fastest growing area of crime in America. And it may be happening in your family, if you aren't paying attention to a caregiver -- or a relative -- who, under the guise of being helpful, is syphoning off an elderly person's life savings.


    This issue no doubt affects seniors across all socio-economic groups, cultures and races. It is a major problem that is expected to grow dramatically with the aging of our population. We are delighted and honored to be joined by Carolyn Rosenblatt, an expert on the topic, to help us protect our parents or loved ones as well as equip us with tools to spot the red flags that exploitation is happening. 


    ---


    Stay tuned for fresh and insightful ideas on what it means to age with dignity and live your best life as an elder or caregiver today. Life is a Sacred Journey airs Thursdays at 5pm PDT.

  • Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1170

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Vanessa McNeal from Cedar Falls, Iowa, 22, a child abuse and sexual assault survivor, NAASCA activist and documentary filmmaker. Her goal is to help other people heal and to spread awareness on the issues of child abuse and trauma. NAASCA needs MORE young folks in recovery like Vanessa! Growing up, Vanessa a lot of family violence until she was around five years old. Her father would leave the house voluntarily or because her mom would kick him out because of the fighting. "That left me and my older sister home alone with my mom who was very involved in the party scene," she writes. "I wasn't taken to school regularly so I became far behind in school to the point where I had to be placed in a special class for kids that were behind." Vanessa goes on, "Due to the lack of parental supervision I was placed in compromising positions with compromising people. I was exposed to men and drugs. There was a lot of DHS involvement and police intervention. My needs were not met adequately." Her grandmother eventually gained custody of all four siblings. "I was molested by my 2 older female cousins and by my older sister. There were times I went years without talking to my mother. We eventually began having a consistent healthy relationship around late high school." Vanessa's doing better now. "I struggled most of my life thinking that no one would want or desire me because I thought my own mom did not." She concludes, "I am in a wonderful place in my life right now and I have never been happier."

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1162

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC: Lauren Book -- Here's a reprise of an appearance by one of our more popular NAASCA family members, Lauren Book, from SCAN Episode 255 in 2012. Along with her father, Ron Book (SCAN Episode 270), she's gone on in the last several years to promote educating parents and kids about the issues and dangers of child abuse. Here's the show description from 2012: Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Lauren Book, 27 year old founder of "Lauren's Kids," was a victim of childhood sexual abuse for six years at the hands of her nanny. Lauren has just completed a 1500 mile walk across her home state of Florida, the third such journey she's accomplished. This time she spent 39 days on the road, one day for each million of the 39 million Americans who have already suffered child abuse. Fully 10 years into her healing journey, Lauren is an outspoken and knowledgeable advocate for the issues of child abuse. Knowing that 95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable through education, Lauren seeks to turn her experience into a vehicle to prevent childhood sexual abuse and heal survivors. Lauren's organization educates adults and children about sexual abuse topics through an in school curriculum, a 24-hour Crisis Hotline and speaking engagements around the country. The organization also provides more than 4.5 million educational and awareness materials statewide through direct mail every year. The ultimate goal is to prevent sexual abuse through awareness and education, and to help survivors heal with guidance and support. Among her many admirers (and a blogger on Laura's web site) is Maria Shriver. Describing herself as a survivor, thriver and warrior against abuse, Lauren says, "I survived, I'm ok .. because it's always ok to tell."
