A husband and wife who worked as carers in Cambridgeshire have been jailed for neglecting an 88-year-old woman.
28-year old Viorel and 26-year old Cristina-Alexandra Constantin were caught on CCTV pushing and pulling their victim.
They were sentenced to six months in prison and ordered to pay a total of £865 in fines.
Watch the footage released by police below.
Viorel Constantin and Cristina-Alexandra Constantin were arrested after police received allegations that the pair had been neglecting an 88-year-old woman they had been caring for.
The victim’s son set up a camera in his mother’s home after he had concerns they weren’t washing her properly.
The footage showed the victim being pushed and pulled about, a hoist not always being used to move her, and Viorel Constantin poking at her nose, pulling her head from one side to another.
Concerns were immediately raised with Midas Care, the company who provided the care for his mother, who then contacted Cambridgeshire police.
The pair, both of Main Street in Witchford near Ely, pleaded guilty to wilfully neglecting a person without capacity at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court.
"She is alive and she can still hear, understand and has thoughts and emotions. I am thankful that I am here and could defend my defenceless mum against them. I'm thankful for the swiftness that everyone has worked on this case.”
“Understandably the victim’s son was shocked and angry by what he saw. His mother does not have the capacity to look after herself and requires professional care. There is an expectation that your loved one will be properly looked after and cared for when putting their care in the hands of professionals, and sadly the Constantins fell below these expectations and let themselves and their contractors down.”
A special 'wall of remembrance' has been unveiled at a Cambridgeshire school after a year of fundraising organised by a student.
Edward Ouzman from Witchford Village College near Ely began his campaign this time last year and even helped to build the wall in his spare time.
The memorial in the school grounds has now been officially unveiled as part of school's Remembrance Day service.
