An 85-year old man was found crumpled on the bedroom floor of his Scarborough home last week. Police say his 51-year old son, the older man’s only care giver, knowingly left his father on the floor for 5 days without food or water. The father remains in hospital on life support. Elder Abuse continues to be a major issue for CARP, a new vision of Aging. Part of its mandate is to push for stiffer penalties for those guilty of abusing elderly people in their care. Libby spoke with Laura Tamblyn Watts, CARPS National Director of Law, Policy and Research about this disturbing case.
