Elder Abuse and Exploitation- Left to Die
April 2016, I really try to be transparent for the sake of my family. It would be easy to crawl into a corner and pretend this has not happened. But deep in my soul I cannot and must not. the fight continues. For my friends... you know...every time I go to Florida, God shows up in the least expected way and affirms just why I keep pressing-on! Soooo....The last time I saw my father in the hospital, there seemed to be some confusion ( conflicting info from Mary… the special friend) just as to how long he had laid in the shower floor naked in the master bathroom. The maintenance man Juan, who was working on the property that morning is quoted as saying “she left him to die”,
Mary reported to me and my father that she had just run out to get her hair done—- so the longest he could have been in the corner of the bathroom floor was about an hour. There seemed to be some confusion— as my dad believed he had laid there much longer, but I had no proof at that time I was listening and sitting by his side at the Deland Rehab Center. You know... she had unbeknown to us become power and medical power of attorney. It was her word against his. Keep in mind this is also the lady that was telling me and my father, that his previous hospitalization and rehab stay was only 3 or 4 days.....the TRUTH that came out later... it was 21 days. You see, every move of hers, was a strategic twisted manipulated lie. She was a con artist, my dad was not her first rodeo. There were others, how many, only God knows. .
in July 2015,, I was able to connect with Juan- who had worked for my father over the past 10 years. Juan told me he had tried to get my number to contact me, he couldn’t get it. She took my father’s phone where all of his contacts and numbers were stored. He had no way to contact anyone. Juan witnessed the quick decline in my fathers health and mental status, suspected foul play and point blank asked my father if Mary was poisoning him. My father’s response, “don't give her any ideas.” To see the statement video, go to our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/820497958079174/videos/1342956195833345/
So...The final blow when we learned of the truth concerning "the fall". Juan was at the house doing the final remodeling to a property that she knew would soon be all hers-- everyone who knew my father would knew he would have never repaved his driveway or cut down over 50 palm trees that were in his front yard.
Upon finishing his work late that May afternoon, Juan went to the house to get paid. No one answered. Which Juan thought was odd, because my father was there and he had seen Mary leave.
He returned the following morning. No one answered. He was concerned, so he returned again late that afternoon. After 20 minutes, she came to the door. Juan had a worker on site who had seen her come in earlier. So he waited for over 20 minutes, she had to answer the day because at this point she knew he wasn't leaving. When she came to the door, she told him my father had fallen. She had not phoned anyone.
In the cold shower on the floor, laid my father, who was stiff and cold, He had laid there for hours. Juan and his son, picked up my father and Juan called the fire department/ EMT. put him in bed before he was transported to the hospital. Juan's words " she left your father to die". "if we had not come, he would have died".
