Elder care facilities are supposed to be there for people who need help with their everyday lives. They need to be nurtured and taken care of based on their own needs. These residents are people too, and should be treated as such.
Recently at Camille Parent’s mother’s elder care facility there were incidents between his mother and other residents, which left her battered and bruised.
- At first he suspected it was just the other residents that were doing the damage to his mother.
- This is when he planted a hidden camera in his mother’s room.
What he found was shocking, as he realized it was not just other residents who were abusing his mother, but actually her caretakers as well!
The video captured other residents going through his mother’s room and even taking her stuff, however this was not the shocking part of the hidden tapes. One staff member was caught blowing his nose on her sheets, then proceeded to make her bed with the same sheets!
One staff member sadly went as far as to physically abuse Camille’s mother, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s.
Camille is shocked at what he has seen and has gone as far as to show the video to the CEO of Saint Joseph’s. The CEO’s response to the video was:
“Based on what I see on the preliminary investigation, it is totally unacceptable and I will make sure that actions are taken to prevent any such abuse in the future.”
