ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — The beating of an elderly man by his paid in-home caretaker is under consideration in Annapolis. Advocates for the elderly want lawmakers to impose increased penalties on people guilty of abusing vulnerable adults. Political reporter Pat Warren has more from the daughter of the victim.
It’s hard to imagine and harder to watch. Ninety-year-old John Taylor, bedridden, was beaten by a woman hired to care for him in his home.
“I discovered that my father had endured three more beatings within that same month,” said Jacqueline Taylor.
