California Group Launches Senior AdvocacyTopics: Press Releases
Los Angeles, CA - A group of activists from the Los Angeles area has launched a web site directed at gaining government intervention in the controversial Conservatorship case of Dr. Rami N. Rodriguez.
Claiming possible abuse, neglect, healthcare and confinement issues, the group (calling themselves Rami's Rangers) is asking for public involvement in order to gain protective custody for the 64 year old American Veteran.
The group's founders are asking California's Adult Protective Services, Health and Human Services and the Governor to intervene on behalf of the Senior citizen and investigate what the group believes to be endangerment of his life and health.
According to the volunteers with Rami's Rangers, the elderly man has been confined to his home against his will, is not permitted to receive visitors, has lost a significant amount of weight and has been plagued with bouts of illnesses unrelated to his diagnosed condition of Alzheimer's disease.
The group fears that the life of Dr. Rodriguez could be in immediate danger.
They are calling upon elder care advocates, disability advocates and other related groups to take up Rami's cause and assist in creating awareness of his plight.
Statement of Volunteer Coordinator, Fay Franklin: A valuable human life may be at immediate risk. We hear about cases like this all too often. We are asking the appropriate authorities in California, under their statutory mandates, to provide immediate protection and a thorough investigation on behalf of Dr. Rami Rodriguez so that his well-being is ensured and so the well-being of all California Senior citizens is guaranteed.
