My father has MS and is a 100% service connected Veteran. His children have been taking care of his medical needs for about the last 12 years. He lives alone in an independent living facility in Portland in Washington County. Almost two years ago we (kids) were informed that our father wanted to move. Our father, along with severe physical limitations from his MS has quite severe cognitive impairments as well, he was also hit by a motor vehicle while sitting on his scooter a few years ago and had to have a leg amputated. We were concerned for him because he seemed happy where he was living and had always been provided good care. Come to find out, his VA conservator had been working with a few EX employees of the home where he lives to move him into another facility-all without family knowledge. We did some investigating and found out that these EX employees were no longer welcomed at my dads facility and there were charges pending against them with the police dept. APPARENTLY, this was not important information to my dads VA CONSERVATOR as he was facilitating the move with these folks. Our family went before a judge who gave us an emergency 30 day guardianship over our father to keep him from moving, (he didn't know any better.) and keep him protected against being taken advantage of. I was APAULED that A VA employee would have such dis regard for the safety of their SO CALLED "protected person!" When the VA found out what we had done to stop the move and protect dad ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE! 2 years in court. Our family was slandered and shredded in court. We lost all ability to take care of our fathers needs. Now the ODVA has control over his money and his medical care. And the fight is not over. The ODVA feels they do not need court approval or a motion to take funds out of my dads estate-it is against the law, but they continue to do so. The judge in Washington Co is no better-she has done NOTHING to protect my father and I don't believe even saw all the paperwork that went before her. What a disgrace!!! So someone please tell me now that I am broke and still fighting for my dads rights, who will listen and help?? US Reps? Nope! Tried that. Our Senators? Nope-too busy trying to get re-elected! Jim Willis the Director? Nope-Doesn't want to return our calls. Who then? Can't be heard in a court of law-Who is it then who will care enough for someone who can't speak for himself??? I am currently shopping media outlets. I am sure my father is NOT the only disabled VET who the ODVA continues to disregard and financially abuse. I am outraged with their behavior and the behavior of Mr. Willis, and our corrupt assistant attorney general!! This is fact folks-on paper facts-not spewing from an angry random crazy person. Pathetic!!
