Spy camera captures ‘sickening’ treatment of Freda, 84, in care home

THIS is the shocking moment a great-grandmother suffering from Alzheimer’s disease is degraded by staff at her care home.

Widow Freda Jobson’s family used a camera hidden in a clock to capture footage after becoming concerned about bedsores on the 84-year-old’s body. High-quality footage shows Mrs Jobson, who herself spent 30 years as a carer, lying in bed at Keldgate Manor Residential Home in Beverley as carers:

– Ask her if she is a witch and whether she has ever practiced black magic.

– Mimic her groaning, caused by her dementia, while one is shown bent double laughing.

– Remove a bandage used to cover a bedsore on her elbow and wrap it around Mrs Jobson’s head while laughing at her.

Caught red-handed: Carer filmed stealing money from pensioner’s purse in her own home

Sheryvone Brooks was recorded taking a purse belonging to 85-year-old Evelyn Nicholson from a kitchen drawer, removing £30 and pocketing the cash. Bosses at Gateway Health and Social Care Dudley had put in the camera after Mrs Nicholson’s family became concerned about money going missing, Dudley Magistrates Court heard.

Brooks, aged 19, of Foxmeadow Close, Sedgley, had been one of her victim’s primary carers for around six months. She pleaded guilty to a count of theft. Magistrates committed her for sentence at Wolverhampton Crown Court on March 18. The court heard the camera had been installed at Mrs Nicholson’s address in Stourbridge. Brooks was recorded stealing the money on January 6 this year. Miss Lynda Gudgeon, prosecuting, said the footage had been reviewed by the company.
