Yucca Valley, Ca.- YV Mayor Pro-tem Isaac Hagerman abruptly shut down his business, Hagerman Gardens Assisted Living on November 23, 2011.
This facility, owned and operated by Hagerman for the past three years, is located in Sky Harbor in Yucca Valley. I was contacted by family members and they told me about their experiences during the hasty closure of the facility uprooting all the residents. These gut-wrenching interviews took place over several days and the actions of Isaac Hagerman are completely disgusting the way he treated these elderly patients.
On Wednesday, November 23, 2011, the day before Thanksgiving, Hagerman had his staff contact the family members at 3 pm to tell them they had to move out by Saturday because he was getting a divorce. This verbal three day notice was in violation of their lease agreements requiring a written 30 day notice. Too cowardly to make the phone calls himself, he instructed the head caregiver, Angela, to do his dirty work.
The five residents were looking forward to sharing another Thanksgiving together but instead, were kicked to the curb by Mayor Pro-tem Isaac Hagerman to be out by Saturday. One 90 year old resident had been living at Hagerman Gardens for 3 years paying $2,200.00 a month for a private room and bonded with the other residents. Apparently this three year relationship meant nothing to him as he pulled the plug and closed up shop. I was told when some of the family members arrived to pick up the residents, everyone was sitting in one room and crying about this abrupt closure. There was a scramble to secure other rooms for the patients by the family which was traumatic for all involved especially during this time of Thanksgiving.
Turns out, Isaac Hagerman was canned that day from his high paying position as Administrator working for his wife’s company, Braswell Senior Care.
Councilman Isaac Hagerman Should Resign In my opinion, Yucca Valley Mayor Pro-tem Isaac Hagerman is morally bankrupt and should step down as councilman. This is not the way we treat our fragile and elderly citizens in this community.
Isaac Hagerman should not be sitting on the Yucca Valley Town Council and certainly should not rotate into the position of Mayor! Lacking character and the ability to conduct himself in business matters that require the basic understanding of a “30 day written notice,” he should not be sitting on the dais voting on multi-million dollar contracts on behalf of the Town of Yucca Valley.
Step down now Isaac Hagerman and get your life back in order. Find employment, go back to school and spend more time with your two sons. The town of Yucca Valley does not need to go through the scandal of your mismanagement of Hagerman Gardens.
The remaining YV Town Council members will do just fine without you and the citizens will be better off.
You are an embarrassment to our community and there are no excuses for the way you treated these Senior citizens.
