104 year old Great-Grandmother fleeced by dishonest, mercenary (so-called) caregivers. Will you help?
Gram has been under 24/7 care for several years. In that time, there have been many wonderful caregivers. All of these caregivers knowingly signed contracts as independent contractors to an agreed upon wage which was the industry standard. Subsequently, three caregivers have ignored their contracts and sought legal counsel claiming additional wages. After some research, we have discovered that we are the third family that has been taken advantage of by the same caregivers who knew of the statutes but declined to inform the family. They continued to work per the contract so they could claim even more money! This seems to be “intent to defraud” which the courts have previously ignored without consequence.
This means that their claim of $600,000 + in back wages, interest and penalties will imminently force Gram from her home of over 70 years. She simply does not have these funds.
Gram’s home has been host to many family functions. Aside from raising five children, she has been host to numerous holiday dinners, celebrations, weddings, birthdays and remembrances. Her home is the seat of our family. Her hope has always been that she would reside there until her final days.
Because of the claim by former caregivers, she is in need of financial help to keep her beloved home. She subsists on Social Security alone, which falls far short of covering her expenses.
We would be grateful if you would share this post with anyone you know caring for an elderly loved one to raise awareness. Any donation that you might feel inclined to give would be an added blessing.
