Just thought I would update you all on the discussion about the 63-year-old woman found living in filthy conditions. Her 37-year-old daughter, who was also the primary care giver, has been arrested. You can read it here: http://www.whiotv.com/news/15685847/detail.html?rss=day&psp=news

Well that is good but I do not believe that she should be put on the Stand alone I also believe that the Social should be put on stand for not checking in now and again which really should be the case in my eyes

I doubt very seriously, gabs, that the social services will step up and take any responsibility in this mess.

That is so nasty and terrible. What is wrong with people. It doesn't take much to keep a place clean. They need to lock the daughter up and throw away the key.

I certainly am hoping that she doesn't get off with a light sentence, queenofarms.

The daughter should have been arrested for letting her mother live in the filth. I have a daughter the same age and I would hate to think she would let me live in our home in that condition if I was sick and unable to take care of myself. And to think there was also a child living in the home is absolutely disgusting. I wonder what people are thinking.

Everyone that I've spoken with, carolbee, thinks it is just as horrible as we do.

Thank goodness! Now I hope social services or whatever agency is in charge in that area start doing their job. This should not have been allowed to happen to that poor woman, and her daughter should be ashamed of herself. Annie

That is all true, anniepa, and if my child treated me that way I would disown them!

Good grief! I'm no neat freak or anything, but that totally sickens me just thinking about it. I wonder how long that poor women has been living in that filth? It's no wonder she didn't get very sick prior to this! I had horses and I'll I kept my barn cleaner than that.

I understand, Ldyjarhead, that the poor woman who is diabetic is not in very good condition from all reports.

I can understand her daughter being taken into care and her being arrested and I think it is about time - an investigastion would seem well overdue, I think there should be an investigation into the authorities that did not check on this lady too! What I cannot understand is why the neighbour blames her for these problems - she wasn;t the neighbours caregiver was she I believe that there may be more to this case than we know! xxx

If you read my original post, mummymo, the daughter was the care giver for the mother who was so ill cared for. Evidently, the little girl was living in the grandmother's home for some reason. Maybe the daughter did not have custody of the child.

That is so disgusting I cannot imagine someone living like that and her caretaker daughter must not have been in her right mind to let her mother sit in a chair covered in filth. I can understand the older woman being physically unable to clean but the younger daughter had no such restrictions placed on her. My house is not spotless but it is clean at least. and to have achild in that situation is even worse.mymy.
