CARE workers caught on camera roughly handling and verbally abusing an elderly woman at a Wraxall home were sentenced at Bristol Crown Court today (Fri).
The men were caught when the woman’s son put a hidden camera in her room at Granary Care Centre in Lodge Lane.
The court saw ‘harrowing’ footage of Gladys Wright being mistreated by people paid to look after her during night shifts in 2012.
Tomasz Gidaszewski, aged 30, of Biddisham Close in Nailsea, was sentenced to a community order and required to undertake 180 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to one count of ill-treating or wilfully-neglecting a person who lacks capacity.
Janusz Salnikow, aged 25, of Greenway Park in Bristol, pleaded guilty to three counts of ill-treatment or wilful neglect and was sentenced to two months in prison, suspended for 18 months, and 200 hours of unpaid work.
