That's awful. I don't know how people who do things like that can live with themselves.

Those stories make me angry, taking advantage of the elderly is right up there with kicking puppies.

Me too. When I worked in a nursing home, the residents sometimes would steal stuff from each other. We usually were able to find the items.

For employees and volunteers to steal, that's reprehensible.

Well, what's worse I feel is when you see filmed evidence of care staff directly abusing the patient, e.g. in their own home - whether it be outright neglect, verbal abuse or physically manhandling them. Here in UK I can barely watch such cases when they come on the news.
