Villa Fontana, a residential care facility for the elderly in San Jose, CA, acknowledged recently that they unlawfully isolated resident Gisela Riordan for a period of more than two years.
Representatives of Villa Fontana said that Riordan did not have the right to make decisions for herself. The nursing home rarely allowed Riordan to receive visitors or phone calls since her placement in the facility in 2010. She has seen her son, Marcus, on only 3 occasions over the span of two years.
The California Department of Social Services is investigating the nursing home for numerous allegations of elder abuse and neglect. Riordan was not generally allowed visitors or phone calls, lost substantial weight, and may not have received adequate food.
