A 71-year-old woman’s three daughters of had a bad feeling every time they went to visit their mother in the nursing home.
It went on for a long time, before one of the daughters suggested installing a hidden camera. The goal was to see if there was any basis for their concerns about their mother being ⓐⓑⓤⓢⓔⓓ.
And after the daughters installed the cameras and watched what they recorded, they discovered far more than they could ever imagine. What the camera documented was simply sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ.
The three sisters suspected that very strange things were happening in their mother’s nursing home. Because Joy Lewis suffers from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, it was difficult for her daughters to get answers from her about what was going on.
But the three knew something was going on as she managed to tell them that the staff did not like her. The suspicions immediately rose, and the sisters decided to act according to their gut feelings.
Joy Lewis’s 3 children began to think about what to do and eventually decided to install a hidden camera in their mother’s room. What they recorded in the end was much more 𝕤𝕙𝕠𝕔𝕜𝕚𝕟𝕘 than they thought.
It can be seen on the camera that the crew was pulling Joy with their hands. They dragged her to the floor when she resisted. The 71-year-old woman could be seen crying at one point in the video, but her pleas fell on deaf ears.
It was the young daughter, Kelly, who bought a clock with a camera on Amazon. “I felt guilty and my heart pounded when I installed it. I told the staff that I thought it would help my mother with her confusion if she always saw from her bed what time it was, what it recorded was a big shock for us. To see these videos, to see my mother crying, it broke my heart”., Kelly explained.
On several occasions in the video, Joy asks to go to the bathroom but her request is simply ignored. The team shows no interest in helping her, and she remains weeping and has to deal with the situation herself.
The ⓐⓑⓤⓢⓔ took place at the nursing home in Nottinghamshire, England, and in the end, three employees were found responsible. They could not deny their actions and were fired from their jobs when when the films were published. They were also put on trial and sentenced to service and suspended ᴘʀɪsᴏɴ sᴇɴᴛᴇɴᴄᴇs.
“We are angry that they received only a suspended sentence, they confessed to the charge only because they were filmed and recorded in the videos”, said the eldest daughter, Teresa Bestwisk, in an article that was published in the Mirror.
