Almost from the time Lois McCallister was moved to the dementia unit at the Quadrangle nursing-care facility, her daughter says there were troubling signs.
Her mother’s $5,000 hearing aids went missing, Mary French said. Staff members were overheard shouting at one another. Insurance forms, to be filled out by the staff, went unfinished.
But it was her mother’s claim that people were hitting her that sent Mary French and her husband, Paul, to their computer.
“I Googled hidden camera,” Paul French said Tuesday. With a few more keystrokes and $250 on a credit card, he bought a nanny cam to secretly place in his mother-in-law’s room.
