    Nanette shared a story:

    Several family members are being blocked from having at least phone contact with my 80 year old mother. Her name is Gina Puehse and we are distraught that we are being denied a relationship with her. How can Kasem Cares help? Her only daughter, her sister, her grandchildren, and one of her son’s are denied contact after she was removed from her residence and taken out of state. It is cruel and unusual to deny family contact when having control over an elderly person. Disgusting.

    Cathleen shared a story:

    I shared my lengthy story in the post before this one, 1/2 hour ago.
    My 93 year old mom with Alzheimer’s, her 3 children are not allowed to call or visit her.
    They are verbally and physically abusing her.
    The judge at Santa Ana Superior Court, in Santa Ana, California, was “ok” with her staying in this horrible Bed and board, written up dozens of times by social services. The judge said those reports are automatic and mean nothing.
    When we asked about the Assembly Bills in effect, prohibiting withholding of elders from receiving any visitors or family, or phone calls, the same judge said, oh, there’s all kinds of laws out there.
    So he denied us taking over caregiving of our mother, financially, and to bring her home to live with her daughters , who are willing to take our mom off the taxpayers dollar, and allow her a little dignity in her last months, days, years.
    We were also told, no guarantee of us receiving word of her passing… we would “ eventually be informed”
    Corrupt Conservatorship court system..it’s a gravy train for lawyers and judges.
    Remember the Casey Kasem case?
    Still going on, this same abuse, in this courthouse.

    Marina shared a story:

    Hello! I have signed up for the event and would like a chance to speak while there. My name is Marina Kamen owner of Kamen Entertainment Group, Inc. here in NYC. I have Produced over 40,000 TV, Radio Theatrical & Musical Projects. Have been an entertainer since 1962 dancing on the Jackie Gleason show…atttended The Manhattan School of Music, majoring in voice, violin, piano & orchestration. My career has been both as an entertainer, Directer, writer & Producer over the years. I am also married 37 years and have raised 3 now grown children here in NYC

    I have been in touch and in conversations with Kerri multiple times over the past could of years…below you will find one of my exchanges with her which also outlines my story.

    We spent years slowly being isolated from my father when he married my stepmother after my mother died from a brain bleed at the young age of 60 back in 1989….he married a woman who had been twice married and divorced and she slowly started to isolate my father from us pulling him in the direction of her own children.
    When we met, I was already a middle aged woman married with 3 children.

    5 years ago when my father turned 90, I spent everyday in the hospital caring for him…he had Traumatic Brain Injury from what she explained as a fall at home. I am starting to have doubts that is was a fall. My father was a runner and in very good shape. She claimed he fell in the bedroom and hit his head.
    He could not speak or move, had countless surgeries. She would not get him a private nurse, so I became the private nurse while she ran around to her classes, lunches and the Ethical Culture meetings.

    Here is one of the conversations I had with Kerri…

    Kerri,
    Hope you are well. I have been following the news story on your Dad which has been released.

    Please, anything you need from me at all let me know. We last communicated with each other a few months back.

    So sorry to hear the news on this but we all felt this could be possible.

    My husband accidentally ran into my stepsister ( the daughter of my Father’s wife who has kept him from us for the past 4 years).
    If you remember me telling you, my mother died in 1989 after a 3 year battle being in a vegetative state due to a brain aneurysm at the age of 60.

    She, my stepsister, being caught off guard by running into my husband on the street at first said, that was Dad was in Hospice care and dying.
    I feel that when she realized she had said it quickly changed her story saying that HE, my father, did not want to see us and that he was fine.

    I am not buying it. I believe that she back peddled being caught off guard after run into my husband in the East 80s in our neighborhood where she also resides here in Manhattan.

    Odd that we have never run into her before after all these years where we were cut out of my now 93 year old Dad’s life after we cared for him for 2 years 2013-2015 in and out of multiple hospitals and nursing homes here in NYC. Of course, with my StepMother barely in site during that time period, yet after he came home, she slowly started to confuse him with poisonous idea about us. This really had been going on for 25 years before his Traumatic Brain Injury which was why he went into the hospital in 2013.

    Her isolation over the years came on slowly.We were raising 3 children and running a large Production Facility in Times Square, Kamen Entertainment Group, Inc. Needless to say, we were a bit busy and did not start to notice this pattern until a few years into their relationship and then marriage. Typical situation . My father is 12 years older than my Stepmother.

    When they finally married in 1995, I was already a middle aged woman with 3 children running our business together with my husband in Times Square.
    My Stepmother was 58 and father had turned 70.

    She had already been married twice before and had 4 children she also has 7 Grandchildren of her own. with the 2 ex-husbands. My father, her husband number 3, had gone through much with the death of my mother and was vulnerable, had money and was an easy target for her. He owned a large apartment on East End Ave here in Manhattan. My Stepmother was living in Inwood, working full time in a Bronx Hospital as an Administrator. The marriage to my father of course enabled her to quit her job and live the high life with my Dad in Manhattan.
    Same all too common story. Sad but so true.

    Within this past year, my stepmother blocked us from her phone, changed her email and sent us a Cease & Desist letter. It would never hold up. I looked at it as a scare tactic. The wrong apartment number was on the envelope and there was nothing in the letter stating that we had to respond indicating we had received it which is common practice with a Cease & Desist letter as I am sure you are aware of.

    Basically, I felt that her lawyer was my Stepmother because we had not done anything legally wrong. My stepmother was isolating m father from us and I suppose was attempting at starting a paper trail. Who knows!

    I just wanted to reach out and let you know I am here.

    Please, anything at all I can do. I remember when the story came out regarding the missing body a while back and felt in my bones that there was foul play.

    Again, strange that my husband should run into my stepsister after all this time with her being caught off guard on the street at first saying, that my Dad was in Hospice care dying, then quickly changed her story saying that HE did not want to see us and that he was fine.

    Money comes and goes. We have been successful here in NYC sending 3 children to private schools. They all are successful living on their own and working in their areas of employment here in Manhattan.

    I believe that I had mentioned that our eldest son is a Columbia University Graduate and is an Attorney in Capital Markets here in NYC.

    My heart goes out to you and please feel free to reach back out to me if there is anyway I can help lend a voice.

    Much warmth & respect!

    Joshua shared a story:

    It is important to care for the elderly because one day we will get old and need someone to take care of us. The elderly are vulnerable and weak, so protecting them from abuse and neglect should be a top priority for everybody. In addition, we all have parents, aunts, uncles, or grandparents that are at an advanced age. Most people will do all they can to protect and provide for their elderly family members. The same way we treat the elders of our family is the same way we should treat elders we are not related to.

    Ted shared a story:

    Back when I was a child, I was taught that we should respect our elders. I grew up regarding those who were much older than me as a bridge between past and present, and a very important one at that. Once I became involved in the care of our elderly, I realized just how many seniors were not receiving the love and care which they deserve. I am passionate about preventing elder abuse because I believe that these people are worth protecting. They are human, and they are an important part of our society. No human should be abused, especially not those who stand to teach us so very much about our past and in turn, our future. 

    Shaunna shared a story:

    I am passionate about elder abuse & those disabled because we have a new generation that does not care about the impirtance of what the elderly stand for, our history! We have lost compassion for those who gave so much for us to be here today. We have lost the ability to help them enjoy their senior years. They are taken advantage of daily. Our disables and elderly can teach us more then we allow, compassion, patience, kindness, ethics, morals & above all else human decensy.

    Abbi shared a story:

    I want to support Kerri and her amazing organization. When I was a senior in high school, I did my final writing project on the Kasem Cares Foundation. While learning about this organization, I came across the numerous elder abuse stories and it tore me up inside thinking about what these poor individuals are going through when they have no voice to stand up for themselves! I want to learn how to be a voice for the voiceless and put an end to elder abuse.

    Anki shared a story:

    As a nurse I have seen horrible things so let s stop this elderly abuse once and for all.

    Teresa shared a story:

    The bottom line – make sure all paper work is in place and everyone has a copy. My parents trusted a sibling and he did what he wanted with the money. He basically stole money from my parents. He took the money in their bank account that was suppose to be divided by the grandkids. We went to mediation, which was a waste of time and not to mention money. We could have gone to court for another $20 grand to fight it. He forged my Dad’s signature and had his notary friend notarize it. (I will be reporting her. ) No one seemed to care that he forged a legal document. The justice system doesn’t really care about elderly abuse. I hope no one ever goes thru emotional abuse we went through during this ordeal. Loosing both parents within a year of each other is devastating enough.

    John shared a story:

    Laura shared a story:

    My mother died May 2017 after a long hard dementia illness where my father was the primary caretaker. Shortly thereafter, a younger woman who was dishonest about her past clung to him, talked him into marrying her, and then, via a mendacious campaign against those who were closest to him, she isolated him from kids, grandkids, friends, and service providers. Then my father died suddenly in February 2019.

    Robert (aka barney) shared a story:

    My wife and I have been friends with Command Sergeant Major Dana Baldwin (U.S. Army retired) and his Korean American wife for 28 years. Dana passed away on Jan 13th of 2019. Since then, some unethical person (or people) have had his widow, Sun Cha Baldwin admitted to a facility and twice when we finally found out where she was; we went to visit her and they are REFUSING ALL VISITORS. In the meantime, she has called me (or my wife) repeatedly asking us to come see her; but, they keep relocating her. Just last week a moving truck showed up at her house and cleaned it out saying “it was headed to an Estate Sale.” The captors have twice taken a phone away from her, and continue to hide her away from us (long time friends); her church family of 40 years and her next door neighbors. We live in Colorado Springs, CO… I have called Social Services; the Sheriff’s office (for a welfare check) and the District Attorney’s office….. all to no avail. Sun Baldwin is 79 years old and last year was a vibrant, intelligent, warm, friendly lady. The last couple of times she was able to get to a phone and call us, she was barely intelligible and kept asking for help!….. At one time, the couple had well over a million dollars in the bank; yet, now they cleaned her house out for an Estate Sale. Something bizarre and nefarious is going on. Please help.

    Kerry shared a story:

    I am Kerry McAuley and my father David McAuley died from his wife’s medical neglect August 24, 2019. He was put into a known horrible nursing rehab “Roswell Nursing Rehab Center” in GA from the hospital June 1, 2019. His wife Alma, Dutch and 21 years younger his 3rd wife married over 30 years lied in text’s telling me from Boca Raton my dad is fine when he was admitted to North Fulton May 15, 2019 In Roswell GA for traumatic injuries. His wife let him drink at a wedding and left him alone and I believe she protected herself again not my father. I even got a letter stated he cannot drink and must be supervised at all time but she continued giving him wine and leaving him alone. I found out and arrived June 10, 2019 not recognizing my dad from months earlier picking him up every day because I did not want him left alone while Alma worked 9 hours a day a Brown Jewelers. I leaned dad was not dying but was narcotized, drugged by this negligent facility and I took video’s of his severe bed sores and buttock wounds his wife ignored and my estranged siblings. Dad was Catholic an this wife a non believer and this bothered him. I got him a priest and this nurse Dee on his wife’s side interrupted twice screaming “I am not on the list and the wife does not want priest” Thank God I was video taping dads last rights and fought for his rights all on video I need help getting viral my story please. The wife told the facility she did not want me visiting and the police were called all on video because I got my dad a priest he wanted. The police thought this was strange they were called as I was not confrontal or currish as this nurse lied to his wife calling her at work rushing over telling me to leave. I went back after 5:00pm to check on my dad and their risk manager was upset I had the video’s of them changing dads diaper and seeing elder abuse and neglect and knew they were over medicating him so he could not function. I was brought into a room with 5 staff members including the risk manger threatening to delete the video of the priest or I cannot see my dad. On June 14, 2019 the Roswell Police were called a 2nd time to have me removed and a criminal no trespass the wife told them to get. I fought with them and asked her why she had not cleaned the feces in dads nails. It took me to arrive June 10, 2019 not finding out because again his wife gave him wine and left him alone causing his injuries and now early death. I had no rights to see my dad and was told his wife had POA and since he cannot speak for himself she makes his decisions. He did speak for himself even drugged stating in many video’s I took daily he wanted me to protect him and not leave and visit him. I protested fro the first time in my life knowing my 1st amendment rights across the street from the nursing rehab so they could not have me arrested with the criminal no trespass warning how insane. I bought a microphone and made signs and set up a small table and so many others that shared their story and video’s of their loved one being neglected but they were afraid to say anything because they were on Medicaid. My dad had Medicare and his days ran out an this wife and my siblings dead to me called and told me they all decided they were going to let dad die in Hospice. They actual said to me we will give you 30 minutes to say good bye to dad with my sister, Jane and the police there. I was heart broken knowing I now had no time to stop this or do anything because they told me they would testify for his wife not wanting to pay fo this care to recover. My brother when in town from Arlington 3 times since June 14, 2019 wheeled dad now in a wheel chair, diapers and speech difficulty all from his wife continuing to let him drink wine with her deigning problem causing his fall again and alone. I have a video of very visit with dad and the last one was August 4, 2019 him holding his chest telling me Alma was not getting him help for pain. My brother did not want me to video dad telling me to get POA and help him and get him out of this place. He wheeled my dad off abruptly and this was the last time I saw my dad conscience and did not even have the chance to kiss him goodbye and tell him I love him, I sent everyone the video including this nursing rehab administrator I had never met but texted and emailed that my dad needed immediate medical care for chest pain which turned out to be pneumonia they all neglected and ignored. From August 4, 2019 to August 24, 2019 when they let him be starved and over dosed with morphine when there was nothing really wrong with my dad except mild Dementia that only worsened from Alma giving him wine and not getting him the medical care he deserved and needed because of the cost. I went to the police in tears emotionally distraught demanding to see my dad. They scored me to the facility as if I am the felon when it was his wife. The administrator only gave me after 58 years to say good bye to my dad for 10 minutes. I knew dad could hear me and he was alive and warm and I asked him if he still wanted me to protest outside and keep protecting him to squeeze my hand twice and he did and hard and did not want to let go. The detective said your time is up and in tears crying I could do nothing the wife who was neglecting him had all the legal rights. I protested telling dad I was there for him and when Alma showed up called her a murderer. Because I was doing this they moved my dad to a location I could not find or at Alma’s home. My daughter, Kay a senior at UNF in Jacksonville flew in August 23, 2019 the day before he lost his battle and went to the house to ask Alma if she could say good bye to her grandfather in tears his first granddaughter. Alma said no Kay you can thank your mother. How far would my family go to now hurt my daughter who is also dealing with a rare eventually terminal heart condition she was born with everything n her body reversed Google last article I wrote (“Heart Wrenching Story 2010”) My story made national press and I was a guest with Chris Cuomo on Prime Time’s special ABC at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC where I have been bringing Kay every 6 months since a year old. I must get this story national attention and have all the video’s and need your help. His wife and my horrible siblings kept where his Catholic service was and the Northside Chapel funeral home said the wife will not let us say good bye to my dad. Kay and I went there and left notes for his coffin. I protested outside the funeral home but felt bad interrupting a 19 year old boy who hung himself over a girlfriend breaking up. Another problem happening in the country. Oddly I felt horrible for doing this the 5 minutes until I found out and left. God had me meet his father out drinking last Friday night so drunk and distraught. His friends tried to explain why he was so drunk and I knew this was the boy at the funeral home where my dad was. I hugged him and said I was so sorry crying still mourning my dad. He said he did not hear me but heard about someone doing this and forgave me. Life and karma and fate seem to prove this once again to me. My family posted dads service information after the service on the obituary site where I read what was written his devoted wife of 32 years. I was the only one to post on the wall about the truth and feel bad but had to tell the truth. Please look this up on (Northside Chapel Roswell GA David Charles McAuley. ) The story gets better. I called every Catholic Church around to ask if they were having a funeral for a David McAuley. The church around the corner where I live St Answers where I called days earlier and was lied to after reading dads obituary it was Thursday 10:30 am at St Andrews and a burial at a VA cemetery with a military memorial my dad a Marine. I called the head priest Father Dan who knew my sister, Jane and he told me he told his staff to lie to his daughter if she called or came in. He said he did not want to argue with me and said his wife did not want me there and one of my siblings had a restraining order which was not true. I asked him "Father did you ask to see this restraining order he ignored me. I will be protesting outside this church soon. I am still in such mourning my first death close to home my father. I learned a wife had no power of attorney and death succeeds. The Captain I have been working with to get elder abuse charges impossible against her and the nursing rehab another issue. He informed me the only way they can keep my daughter and I from attending the wake and his funeral and burial is a court order which I would be served and a hearing. Not to let me visit my dad because I got him a Catholic priest and then not to let me say good bye for longer then 10 minutes and not attend his services is beyond belief. I will have the last words. Kerry McAuley the eldest daughter.

    Anthony shared a story:

    Our story is rather strait forward. My father in law, Jose Argueta, passed away on July 10, 2019 at our home, while in Hospice care. My wife Sonia, is also an R.N. In or about September of 2017, Jose, who’d had metastasized Prostate Cancer, was becoming more frail, he was unable to care for himself without monitoring and assistance. For over a year, he steadfastly refused to move in with us. At first, we thought, “well, its about independence.”. However, sadly, this was not the case. Sonia and I knew that Jose had been involved as was Sonia’s late mother , with the Jehovas Witness organization. (Hereinafter, "JW’s. ) He had been involved for about 10 years or so, prior to his death. As Christian’s, my wife and I were appalled at what conveluded ‘theology’ these folks had involved him in, yet we were unable to convince him otherwise. During his resistance, we became concerned that the JW’s insisted that regardless of his health, that he go out “door knocking” It did not matter if it was sub-zero or 100 degrees, they insisted he also wear a suit and tie. He was at a point where he could barely walk. He was passing out a lot as well. What’s more is, that we learned that as an Organization, the JW’S , teach their followers (much like Jim Jones did) that their families and others whom are not JW’s are evil apostates. They threatened him and scared him and also Sonia’s mother when she was alive, with “Disfellowship.”, if they were found to have associated with us, his very own family. If they found that he still celebrated holidays, the punishment would be disfellowship , as well. Not even a birthday. What we also learned was quite devious and criminal. The JW’s teach that upon retirement and preparation of the Last Will and Testament, that all of their assets, real estate, clothing, jewelry SHALL, be left to the JW organization. They’re brainwashed into believing that leaving your estate to your family, is a mortal sin. They insist on taking the elderly to the elderly persons bank and adding persons from the organization to the accounts. They insist that the elderly sign documents such as Quit Claim Deeds for property, DNR (Do not Resuscitate) orders as to their healthcare and leaving everything they own to the Organization. Around September of 2017, as Jose was further deteriorating, we insisted that he come and live with us. He finally relented. He also insisted that we allow as a caveat, the JW’s to visit him at our home. We literally had no choice but to agree. After each visit, we noted Jose was different. He was more confrontational and condescending. He was a VERY mild-mannered soul. We decided to extend our outside surveillance system to the inside living-room. We explained that it was for his own good and that he were to fall, that we would be notified if we were not at home. It was pretty high tech. This worked to our advantage as our concerns grew about what he was being told by his visitors. We uncovered what was being said and heard them as they pressured him to give up everything he owned upon his death. They sent up to twelve (12) people at a time. Often several times in one day! It was crazy! Finally, we told the leaders of this Cult, that there were too many people at once and that it compromised his immune system. They sent less people, but not realizing everything was being recorded, they kept on about his assets. Finally, Sonia convinced Jose to establish a Living Trust. She took him to an Attorney and also was granted Power of Attorney as his daughter. Anything he might have signed previously was now superseded by the Trust. The JW’S did not know if the Trust. But, a few months before his passing, I told them that he’d decided to establish the Trust. As you might imagine, those frequent visits become quite infrequent. All of those years of door-knocking and we later found out, substancial financial support of that organization, meant nothing to them. They tried to find a way around that Trust I’m certain, but we were able to live monitor, eventually insisting that we be present if a visit was to take place all of his communications were recorded. The JW’s are truly Elder abusers. It was all about the money and convincing those close to death that their families were evil and demanding under threat, that the elderly members shed their worldly possessions and give them to the cult. My advice, get involved, don’t allow your loved one to be abused. No Christian organization would ever do anything like this nor have such doctrine. Jose passed away peacefully in our home with his family by his side on July 10, 2019.

    Tim shared a story:

    My sister in law stole over $673,000 the day her mother died depriving her dad from his money, she did this by becoming the financial POA and convincing her mother whom had a limited education and could not read or write English to move the money from a bank the family had banked at for 50 years to a credit union she banked at. Then the day her mother died she falsified POA paper work showing that she didn’t need a doctors note stating her mother was incapacitated (Which was on the original POA paper work from the family attorney) But instead the new POA paper work stated she didn’t need a doctors note and could immediately invoke the Financial POA. We have been fighting this with our attorneys for 3 years come September 2019 . The family member was arrested July 15th as our attorney by law had to give our evidence to the police since a crime had been committed, we have been pushing the Iowa attorney Generals office Tom Miller, the US District Attorneys office southern District in Des Moines Iowa and the Johnson county Iowa Assistant DA to push this to the feds for federal prosecution since she committed bank fraud by falsifying POA paper work and she was a Co-Executor to her mothers estate.

    We are forming a foundation to try and fight elderly Financial abuse as this is a growing problem and most people have no idea where to turn or where to get resources. It has been an up hill battle and no one has believed us but we had the evidence and uncovered more evidence in our pursuit of this family member. Our foundation is looking at ACFCS certification so we can speak to Police departments, Attorneys, Banks and nursing homes to educate them on the red flag warning signs as well as hopefully be able to sell certification to help fund the foundation. We intend to do FREE events to the public, tell our story of my father in laws financial abuse and bring in Financial planning companies, and Trust attorneys to show people how to set up their estate correctly so the abuse doesn’t happen, this will be an educational event and IF someone wants more info they can ask to be contacted, we will not SELL at these events, more focused on education to the public that attends.

    Our foundation intends to set up attorneys in states and be able to offer services to families at reduced rates as well as forensic accountants to fight the cases of abuse when a family has strong evidence but little to know money to litigate the case.
    We also want to work with Legislators in each state to make new laws addressing punishment for these crimes.

    We are trying to bring National attention to our story and so many more stories of Financial Abuse against the Elderly, together we can make a difference!

    Laws need to be in place to prevent conservatorship abuse. Amanda Bynes , Britney Spears , Casey Kasem have all been victims to individuals that colluded against them to get control of their assets and life! This is not American! Death threats should not be made for standing up for woman in the industry . Intimidation made to artist that want to speak up on behalf of other artist. Artist being threatened to be blacklisted if they blow the whistle. Lou m Taylor , Samuel , Larry Rudolph , sexual predator James Spears and more! This is not our America and things need to change! It’s the same scenario just different celebrity the they are not capable of attending court or , thinking for themselves , the controlled and limited visitation for loved ones it’s sick what money can do to people
