A 55 year old Hamilton woman is facing charges after an investigation by the Crimes Against Seniors Unit.
Police were called on July 25th by a local hospital concerning the condition of a patient that had been admitted.
A subsequent investigation revealed that the victim had been living in deplorable conditions and was compromised medically. Services to the home had been refused by the accused allowing the neglect to continue.
The victim was under the care of the daughter at the time.
The daughter, who hasn’t been named, is charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life.
