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 with guardianship abuse.
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 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.

Anyone who has vacationed in the beautiful Catskill Mountains knows the village of Ellenville, New York, and no visit to Ellenville was complete without a stop in Cohen's Quality Bakery, "Home of the World Famous Raisin Pumpernickel."
Cohen's Bakery owners Ruby and Reginia Cohen struggled together for over fifty years to build a lasting legacy for their grandchildren and financial security for themselves in their retirement years, yet it took only a handful of outsiders less than eighteen months to destroy everything they worked their entire lives to acquire.
The nightmare guardianship abuse is the silent, secret "Holocaust" of our generation. It's a nightmare which no one ever wakes up from and lasts long after the money, and the family members are gone.
