Caregiver Leaves 95 Year Old in Car For 2 Hours to Gamble

A woman responsible for taking care of a 95-year-old with dementia was arrested Sunday after leaving her in a car for more than two hours to gamble at a South Florida casino, police say.

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Maria Holly, 53, was arrested after a visitor to the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek noticed the 95-year-old woman sitting in a car and called police.

The elder woman, Belle Sapstein, who wasn't able to answer questions about herself because of her dementia, was uninjured, police say. She was taken to a local hospital for observation and was still listed as a patient there Monday afternoon, the newspaper says.

Surveillance video from the casino, located about 40 miles north of Miami, reportedly showed Holly driving into the parking lot at 4:49 p.m. on Sunday. An officer was dispatched at 7:07 p.m.

Though Sapstein appeared to suffer no distress from the incident, she was left alone without food, drink or a cellphone, WPTV in Palm Beach says, citing a report by a police officer responding to the call.

Holly, who says she is a licensed nurse, thought it was OK to leave the elderly woman in the car, according to the arrest report.

Broward County Circuit Judge Louis Schiff ordered Holly to be held on $6,000 bond and to have no contact with Sapstein, the TV station reports. Schiff also prohibited Holly from working as a caregiver until her criminal case is resolved.

I hope they check to make sure the money she was gambling with was hers or the poor woman she was supposed to take care of.

This is why I'm never putting my mom in a nursing home when she gets into her 80s+

Re: Caregiver Leaves 95 Year Old in Car For 2 Hours to Gamble

Good point about the money! I didn't even think of that.

Why do people get jobs as caregivers to children or elderly if they don't like people? I will never get it.

My brother put my father in one of those horrible places so he could go party. I had to give a nurse, or whatever she was supposed to be, Hell to get the A/C turned on and to give him Tylenol. He was burning up the day before he died. He wanted to die at home.

karma got that brother 17 months later when he died in a fire!

My mother, who is 76, will never go into one of those places! Horrible, horrible way to go, especially if you can't take care of yourself or suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's, as my father did, along with Parkinson's and diabetes!

Yes, it gets frustrating at times and are like children, but, who was always there for you growing up? (assuming you weren't one of the unfortunates who suffered abuse)

You're fucking right. I am taking care of my elderly mom now, so that she does not have to go to one either. When the time comes, and it's a good ten years off from the looks of things, there are options like in-home nursing (that's what we did with dad til the end) but I will still be here. Nobody fucks with my parents, they are good people.

This poor woman.

Re: Caregiver Leaves 95 Year Old in Car For 2 Hours to Gamble

The elderly have been a throwaway part of society nowdays, as their kids just worry about themselves and dump mom and dad in a seniors home. One of my friends used to work in an old folks home, and found it sad how their families treated them. Some of the seniors used to wait at christmas time, to see if their kids would visit them, but never did. My 80 year old mother lives with me, as she now is having problems with all her ailments. This woman should be tossed in jail, for abusing the poor senior lady, who no fault of her own ended up with this bitch.
