Debbie (Milich) Mysiewicz signed Take The Pledge 2016-10-13 11:07:13 -0700If you are sponsoring the 2017 contact legislation in WA state—it needs to be changed! Who determines who the “incapacitated person” (ICP) wishes to contact? The guardian. Who oversees what the guardian does? The court. What is the procedure for ascertaining the wishes of the ICP if disputed? THERE IS NONE. The elderly are vulnerable, especially if demented and senile and can be made to do or say just about anything when under duress. Which they are in a hostile guardianship.2,445 pledges
Stop the Silence. Promote Awareness. Raise your Voice.
- 1 to 2 million Americans age 65+ report having been abused by a loved one or someone they depend on for care.
- Only 1 in 14 incidents of elder abuse are ever reported to authorities.
- Only 1 in 25 cases of financial exploitation are ever reported, meaning there may be at least 5 million financial abuse victims each year.
You can do your part to end the silent epidemic of elder abuse by taking the pledge to stand up against elder abuse. There are 10,000 people who are turning 65 each and every day (Pew Research Center), and we are rapidly approaching a time where nearly 50% of the population will be 65 or older. Together, we can end the silence of elder abuse by standing united and raising our voices against this growing problem.
Show your support in this movement, by pledging to end the silence, raising awareness in your community, and speaking up against elder abuse.

Debbie (Milich) Mysiewicz commented on Contact Us 2016-10-13 11:01:02 -0700My mother was crippled due to neglect in a hostile WA guardianship in 2013 and died of Alzheimer’s and dementia in 2015. I was blocked from contact for over a year by a lawyer, and group of strangers who had alienated my mother from me in the 1990s, for over a year. I am her only child. She had moved 2000 miles to be close to me and even worked in my business. I believe and have some evidence that she committed major estate fraud in the estate of my late father, who died in 1988. (With one of the stranger-inheritors providing advice and financial planning.) In connection with this, she was married to a man who died in 2006—in 2012! She was induced to change her name (to terminate rights to my father’s estate) write a new will in 2012, when medical records show she had NO historical memory an other records show she did not know what her assets were and thought she had 3 children. I am an only child. She was taken to the attorney who drafted this will by one of the new will’s beneficiaries, who had a business relationship with the lawyer’s wife, and the will was witnessed by the guardian! The judges were totally on board with this scam. I and the grandkids were totally disinherited.
I believe there was foul play in the sudden death of my father and in my mother’s injury. This happened 2.5 months after I finally managed to contact her in 2013 and she said she would get into trouble if “they” found out she had spoken to me. I immediately contacted the head of WA DSHS APS who refused to interview my mother in private and inspect her circumstances. I later found out this head was on the State CPG Board and that the courts control all investigations related to guardianships. When I last wrote to them, just before the injury, I predicted exactly what would happen! The people who inherited her estate were in charge of watching and drugging her! My mother only got care 15 hours weekly (even though the estate may have been in the millions) and professional care only a small fraction of that on weekends.
While the probate is still going on and I have FOIAs out to get to the bottom of the past estate fraud, I doubt there’s much that can be done for me at this point. My husband is disabled and I’m basically a pauper. Any publicity or pass-along to this story (link follows) would be greatly appreciated. In addition to what you are doing, I think my suggestions contained in Part I would go a long way towards correcting this problem. Read Section 2 to see what the judges and lawyers are NOT telling you:
I think what also needs to be done right now is to have a Civil Rights attorney or firm take the whole bunch of people and agencies involved in one of these local “whale rendering stations” for the elderly. (My husband likes to say “Soylent green $ is old people.”) Any honest attorneys out there interesting in taking a look at this case?
Older Americans (like myself) also need to be cautious about where they retire to. Places like Sequim in Clallam Co., WA, provide an ideal feeding ground for predators. But, really, anyplace there are many elderly in a limited area will also have such predators. Forewarned is forearmed. I would have a DPOA and keep a watch on guardianship filings where you or a loved one live. Because once an elder is slapped into a guardianship, I believe, the DPOA becomes worthless.
