Best of all, if you have Amazon unlimited, it’s free. If not, it’s a bargain at $2.99.
The book does an excellent job of detailing the harrowing end of days of one elderly man, age 72, who was in good mental health, and good physical condition.
Once drugs are dispensed, it’s an easy step to have the person declared incompetent, put in a locked down nursing home where more drugs are dispenses–and every knows (or should know), if you were mentally competent prior to taking these drugs, they will ruin your mind and body.
Psychotropic drugs are not FDA approved for those over 60 or under 20, but they are dispensed all the time to the elderly. Up to 80% of nursing home residents are dispensed psychotropic drugs, whether they want them or need them or not. The FDA has declared this is a dangerous practice–so dangerous that in fact, a doctor’s (or nurse’s) license should be revoked if they engage in such behavior.
Nonetheless, this book is an excellent and quick read and I hope everyone takes the time and trouble to read the truth about guardians and guardianship courts and how this one easily worked with a murderer to commit murder.
My review, just posted:
This is an excellent short story of the corruption of our nation’s court system,and in particular, the guardianship system where so very many people steal money from an elder with money, it closely resembles the worst Dickensonian scenes ever.
