Case Study #19 Elder Abuse or fraud?

Personal support worker steals from seniors' home resident
Court hears worker's credentials will be revoked
A personal support worker has lost her career for going on a $2,000 shopping spree using a credit card she stole from a resident at a North Bay long-term care home where she was working.

Court heard Rose was caught twice on security surveillance at two of the stores.

Rose has no criminal record and claimed she was in an abusive relationship at the time, but she didn't offer any reason for what she did.

She's currently living in Courtright, near Sarnia, is going back to school and expects to have her personal support worker credentials revoked.
