Mannie Graham’s life in the nursing home was supposed to be peaceful and surrounded with love and care. This 98-year-old lady was admitted to the nursing home with promises that she will miss nothing and she will be under constant care and support. It turned out those promises were not quite true.
One day Mannie started complaining to her family that the staff is mistreating her. She added that the staff’s behaviour is bad, particularly the nurse that was assigned to take care of Mannie. These claims were not taken too seriously by the family at that moment. However, very soon other signs made them think twice.
Very soon the family witnessed something very shocking. The bruises on Mannie’s body and the black eyes made them quite worried. Mannie’s daughter and granddaughters wanted some answers about these horrible things.
The staff told the family that Mannie fell from the wheelchair and got the bruises. They told the family that that was nothing to worry about. But, the family did not think like that.
The granddaughters wanted to find out what’s going on. Therefore, they decided to put a camera in Mannie’s room. The camera was hidden in a clock. After some time, the family saw something horrible. They couldn’t believe their eyes!
Minnie Graham spent the last years of her life in a nursing home in Garland, Texas. When she began to accumulate bru!ses and black eyes, her family grew suspicious. The hospice workers told Minnie’s loved ones that she’d fallen out of her wheelchair … but they knew better than to take them purely at their word.
98-year-old great, great grandmother Minnie told her family that staff at the Garland hosp!ce had been mistreating her. She accused one worker of being particularly crue|, though it was difficult for her to get across the severity of things since she was so old.
When her family put the question to the hosp!ce workers charged with caring for Minnie, they denied the claims out of hand. They instead said she’d taken a tumble from her wheelchair, hence the sudden appearance of bru!sing.
Fortunately, Minnie’s family weren’t appeased. They su$pected foul play, and so took it upon themselves to investigate further.
They set up a new clock in Minnie’s room, one rigged with a secret camera, and began to record the daily ongoings in the hosp!ce. They waited, they recorded, and they watched. What they ended up capturing horr!fied them.
It turned out Minnie was indeed being tormented and abu$ed at the home, and it certainly wasn’t in a manner that could be overlooked. One carer swore and ridiculed Minnie, whilst spraying water in her face and forcing a cloth into her mouth that had just been used to clean her body.
Luckily, through initiative and determination, Minnie’s family were able to uncover the horr!d truth before she passed away. The two caretalkers, identified as Brenna Tiller and Iwuchukwu Ekechukwu, were both indicted for a felony !njury to the elderly.
Ekechukwu was reportedly later conv!cted for a felony with five years of probation and had her nursing home license revoked – but Tiller continued to work at different facility. The police said they were unable to track her down, according to Rasansky Law Firm.

It should go without saying that absolutely NO ONE deserves this sort of treatment, particularly not someone so weak and vulnerable as Minnie.
What sort of a world do we live in where it’s not even safe to leave your elderly loved ones in care? If nothing else, this story should teach us to always remain vigilant, and to trust your gut feeling.
