Camille Parent was upset because he believed other residents of the home where his mother is were apparently abusing her and causing abrasions and bruising. He decided to install cameras in her room and catch the residents in the act. He was not prepared for what he found. He discovered that the caretakers were abusing his mother also.
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.”
