HAVERFORD – Family members of the 78-year-old woman allegedly abused by three Quandrangle employees filed a civil suit in Delaware County Common Pleas Court today.
Mary McCallister French and her husband Paul French held a press conference in their home earlier today announcing the complaint on behalf of 78-year-old Louis McCallister.
A former resident of the Quandrangle, McCallister was staying in the facility’s dementia unit when three employees began routinely abusing her physically, the complaint stated.
The suit was filed on behalf of McCallister’s family by Philadelphia law firm Saltz, Mongeluzzi & Bendesky, PC.
Named as defendants are The Quadrangle, its parent companies Sunrise Senior Living, Inc., Sunrise Continuing Care, LLC, as well as former employees Samirah Traynham, Tyrina Griffin and Ayesha Muhammad.
Sunrise Senior Living Inc. of McLean, Va., operates the Quadrangle Continuing Care Retirement Community in Haverford.
Sunrise officials did not immediately return a message. The company, which operates more than 300 facilities, has said it takes the allegations seriously.
Three former aides, all women, are awaiting trial on assault and neglect charges in Delaware County.
