When we place our elderly loved ones in nursing homes, we do so because we are hoping that the staffers will be able to provide them with the care that we are unable to. Unfortunately, there are a number of people who work in nursing homes that are not willing to do right by the people we love most. This is a saddening fact that some of us are forced to deal with on a regular basis.
Why someone would feel the need to hurt a person who is completely defenseless is beyond us. How could you ever hurt someone who has never done something wrong to you? Elderly people deserve our love and respect. Minnie Graham recently endured some unsightly abuse at the hands of her so called “caretakers” and when she told her family, they did not immediately believe her.
They needed more convincing that her repeated falls were not her own doing. When Minnie told her family about the cruel hospice worker who was responsible for her injuries, they did not buy her story right away. They wanted to believe the hospice workers who claimed that she was falling out of her own chair without their assistance. This is a somewhat understandable impulse.
So they decided that they would get to the bottom of things in the most objective manner possible. They set up a hidden camera and laid back to wait. Not only was Minnie shoved out of her wheelchair in a violent manner, but she was also kicked and punched. Two aides decided to gang up on a 98 year old woman and we cannot believe that these sickos were ever hired in the first place.
Can you believe that this is not the end of the story? If you would like to learn more about how this horrific tale ended, then we urge you to check out the video below. The fact that people would willingly choose to work with the elderly and then abuse them shakes us to our very core. Why would someone behave in such an atrocious way towards someone who is only seeking their help?
These are the types of questions that keep us awake at night. When we place our loved ones in a nursing home, we want the peace of mind that comes with knowing that they are being cared for properly. These aides could not control their rage and we are dismayed on Minnie’s behalf. No elderly citizen ever deserves to be treated this shabbily. Please share this story to raise awareness.
