Video of caregiver assaulting patient… she is also charged

Amplify’d from

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Here’s a story that should piss you off with a video that will have you wanting to knock the teeth out of 52-year-old Carmen Pereira. She is the home health care worker accused of regularly beating on the 91-year-old Alzheimer’s patient she has been taking care of for the last 11 years. Her abuse was caught on video after the elderly woman’s family installed a camera in her room so that other family member’s could keep in contact with her. Before leaving on a trip, the woman’s daughter turned on the camera and when she returned she found bruises on her mother. She checked out the video and was horrified at what it had captured. Pereira can be seen routinely manhandling, slapping, and pulling the defenseless woman’s hair. She has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with extreme indifference, endangering the welfare of an incompetent person and neglect of an elderly/disabled person. I’ve included the six minute video after the break, and while it isn’t the worst abuse we’ve seen here, it isn’t any less infuriating. The family allowed the video to be made public in hopes of raising awareness of this type of abuse. I just thank God I won’t have to worry about this shit happening to me if I get that old — I’ll still be way too sexy to abuse. [Read more…]
