Re: “Cindy Gillespie tapped to head DHS

And they don't know what they are doing with the Adult Protective Services either. They take Parents out of the home, and stick them in a Nursing facility, because they have some dementia, shove lithium in their mouths so they shut up. And if you are living out of state, they don't call and tell you that they plan on taking custody of your parent. They don't feel the need to do so. But when they turn her into a vegetable, then DHS wants you to be guardian. When she can't be moved, and make u spend thousands in lawyer fees, just so they don't get in trouble because of HIPPA, and they still don't tell you nothing about your Mom. They are heartless people at best. Just fill up them beds, to collect those big bucks. Then the laws are made specifically to help the nursing home magnates to maximize profit by saying all they need are two people to take care of 18 plus Alzheimers patients. Give them drugs, and shove them in a corner. It's hard enough for one person to take good care of one Alzheimers patient. So, how can two people take care of 18 + Alzheimers patients?? Can someone explain that? And when they can't eat, because they are so drugged, they break bones, and then get a stomach tube put in their abdomen to feed them because of the loads of drugs they have been given. Then the nursing home collects a big fat fee from Federal Medicare, they keep their Social Security check, and collect from the state. And my Mom can't tell on them, because of dementia or is it drugs? Nobody will say at DHS, so hush hush. What a gig for Norman Estes and Northport Health Services. How much money does the state get for being the custodian of these poor elderly people? The Judge decides that part. It's good money housing people who can't speak for themselves. The DHS and Nursing homes can't make that kind of money off the children, so they give them back to parents. Just wait until they get Dementia.
