A man sets up a hidden camera in his mother’s nursing home. What it records Is horrifying.

When his mother sustained repeated injuries as a result of attacks from other residents at her elder care facility, Camille Parent decided to do something about it. He had previously filed numerous complaints to the staff regarding the incident but to no avail. Finally, he installed a hidden camera in her room to gather evidence that would support his mother’s claims. What he captured was simply shocking and horrifying. It wasn’t other residents harming his mother, rather, it was the caretakers themselves.

Although this footage is from 2013, elder abuse is still an ongoing issue in not only the United States but the rest of the world as well. With more medical advances that help prolong life expectancy, more and more people are in need of part-time or full-time elder care and support services. However, those that are most dependent on these services are at the mercy of the provider. Therefore, if the providers themselves are corrupt, then the entire system breaks down.

This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. The type of “care” seen in the video above can’t be tolerated, ever.
