The family of a 95-year-old blind women who was known as a ‘b****’ by 2 male carers and slapped by one of them criticized the justice system last night when they escaped jail.
Relatives of dementia victim Marjorie Preston set up a secret camera in her room in a care home after seeing unexplained bruises on her arms.
A distressed Mrs Preston could be seen pleading ‘Please God, help me,’ and requesting her glasses, but Dias simply tells her to ‘shut the f*** up’. He threatens to ‘break every bone’ in her body and says he will ‘drag her by her throat to bed’ and ‘kill’ her when she awakens.
Chester Crown Court was told that Dias was also seen slapping the grandma throughout the face, causing her to yelp in pain. He called her a ‘dipstick’ and a ‘d***mind’, accused her of trying to bite and scratch him, and said: ‘God thinks you’re a b****.’ Ciecielowski failed to stop Dias or report him and branded Mrs Preston a ‘silly b****’.
The carers, who claimed they were not properly trained to take care of challenging dementia sufferers, both confessed ill-treatment and were sentenced to nine months in prison, suspended for two decades. They were also prohibited from working as carers and ordered to complete 250 hours of unpaid work.
Pedro Dias, 21, and Piotre Ciecielowski, 26, verbally abused a 95-year-old blind girl they had been caring for as she got ready for bed in Prestbury House Care Home at Macclesfield
