The police in Kępno (Greater Poland Voivodeship), under the supervision of the prosecutor’s office, are investigating the case of causing a senior woman to suffer from extreme neglect and exhaustion. Concerned about the lack of contact with her mother, the daughter, who was abroad, asked for help from her friends who entered the 63-year-old’s apartment. The woman was in a state of extreme exhaustion.
The poor health condition of the 63-year-old resident of Kępno was revealed thanks to her daughter, who is abroad. A week ago, she alerted her friends that she had not been able to contact her mother for several days.
After entering the apartment, they found the woman in a neglected place, in a state of extreme exhaustion. The patient was immediately transported to a local hospital. There, it was decided to hospitalize the senior. There was even a fear that her legs would have to be amputated, but ultimately this did not happen. The police were informed about the case.
The District Prosecutor’s Office in Kępno initiated proceedings to investigate the circumstances of the incident.
It is known that the 63-year-old was under the care of the Municipal and Communal Social Welfare Center in Kępno. In turn, MGOPS entrusted the care of the woman to a subcontractor providing care services.
