Home care owner convicted of elder abuse and manslaughter

Caring for the elderly is a massive responsibility. While it comes with many rewards, it is not the right career choice for everyone.

Whatever the reason mistreatment happens, elder abuse is an ongoing danger for many older Americans throughout the nation.

This is a big cause of concern for many who fear their loved one may fall victim to abuse or neglect.
