-- As the population ages the issues of the elderly become more widespread and crucial. Rescuing Ruby is a factual detailed story of a daughter's struggle to free her father from the control of a court appointed guardianship.
This is the true account of the events that lead to the near destruction of her family at the hands of her cousins, Jewish Family Services of West Palm Beach, Florida and one of the most powerful elder law attorneys in South Florida.
It is also a warning of a legal system which is out of control. Families become victims of judges and attorneys in nearly every state in the U.S. Guardianship was designed as a last resort to protect our most vulnerable citizens, yet, as this book will reveal, it has now become an easy source of corruption, legalized theft and, in some cases, court sanctioned murder.
Once a person is put into guardianship, they have less constitutional rights than a serial killer sitting on death row. The victim is isolated from their family, who are the denied any contact or visitation, ordered by the guardian to "protect" their "ward". The family's estate is now controlled by the guardian, so they do not have the funds to hire an attorney, and attorney's won't take on these cases because they know the cards are stacked against them, even before they file their first motion.
The only way to end the cycle is to recognize it before it happens and avoid the trap. Read this book and know that if this nightmare can happen to a loving, innocent family, it can happen to you.
“A 'must read' for anyone with elderly parents and also for those of us growing older, because this could be our fate as well without the proper documents in place and someone we trust to see that our requests and needs are met. To think that this type of abuse is going on daily in America is beyond belief. Read this book, learn from it, and just maybe we can put an end to this abomination in our lifetime.” Charleen Micheles, International Editor
