A recent court case has highlighted how a professional carer looking after a vulnerable elderly woman in their own home was abused.
The woman’s daughter had installed CCTV cameras which caught the carer of her elderly mother, a dementia sufferer, subjecting her client to abuse, threats, “cruel and degrading” treatment.
At Poole magistrates court, CCTV clips were shown of Susan Hind, 69, subjecting her client to abuse, threats, mockery and undignified acts, calling her a “dirty bitch” and pushing a bag of soiled clothes close to her face at her home.
Hind now faces a prison sentence after pleading guilty to guilty to three charges of ill treatment or wilful neglect of an individual.
