SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2018 /CNW/ -- Journey founder and only remaining original member Neal Schon and his wife, former Real Housewives D.C. star Michaele Schon, are opening up their heretofore private lives to draw attention to the growing crisis of systemic elder care abuse in America. Originally revealed on Blast.com, the story of Michaele's mother, Rosemary Holt's, ongoing suffering at the hands of a broken legal system in Virginia, is fast bringing much needed scrutiny to the critical social problem.
The couple has also now revealed that there is a major network documentary in process. "Saving Rosemary" will discuss the disconnected and profit-driven, multimillion-dollar elder care business with the resulting abuse, neglect, and exploitation that are destroying the most vulnerable and fragile American citizens (for more on the elder care crisis in Virginia specifically, see USA Today's article on Elder Care Abuse in the VA Nursing Homes).
The evidence of insufficiency and abuse cited by the Schons includes frequent injuries, documented neglect, medical malpractice--including the administration of inappropriate and dangerous sedative medications--and untruthful reporting to the family concerning Rosemary's care.
The couple's immediate goal is to obtain conservatorship of Rosemary in order to return her to the previous level of independence and dignity that she rightfully deserves, but also want to share their experience to create a meaningful dialogue about the condition of the American health care system.
