BBC Panorama has revealed appalling footage of an elderly woman being mistreated at an elderly care home. The woman has dementia and often forgets how she got the bruises on her body and face, this footage revealed everything. During Maria’s night bath he is seen punching and taunting the elderly woman. Her daughter watches the footage in shock and can not believe her eyes. The care worker was given 18 months in jail and some believe this is not enough as many other residents have reported abuse from the staff but due to lack of evidence nothing can be done.
