Elder Abuse By Home Health Care Aides

The family of a 99 year old Staten Island husband and father wanted him to live at home and spend his final years with dignity.  The family discovered, through use of videos obtained through cameras installed in the home, that the home-health aides that they depended on to provide 24 hour care, abused the man.  They found evidence of refusing to pick him up after he fell, watching him struggle to get to the walker and fall sustaining fractures and head injuries, pushing him etc..  The family has sued the home health care agency and the aides.
