Elder abuse alleged at Woodstock nursing home

Two sisters claim that their mother, who is now in hospital, was abused at a Woodstock long-term care home. The sisters told CTV News that they hoped their elder abuse allegations would be taken more seriously by the home after the investigation into Elizabeth Wettlaufer, who is accused of killing seven of its residents, came to light. Instead, they say, they haven’t seen any change in the operations at Caressant Care according to the  THE CANADIAN PRESS.
Cathy Long and Jenny Rowe say their mother, Mary Long, lived at Caressant Care for 15 months, during which time she was often neglected. Specifically, they say, they’ve often visited the home only to find their mother slumped over, left in a dirty diaper or soaked in food.
