Three employees of an assisted living and memory care facility have been accused of abusing elderly patients and encouraging them to fight each other in what was purported as a source of their entertainment.

A relative of a resident of the Danby House in Winston-Salem, NC, got in touch with the Winston-Salem Police Department to report that they believed their loved one and at least one other person was being mistreated by the staff. Both of the women who were reportedly being subjected to the abuse live with dementia and exceed the age of 70.

The state Department of Health and Human Services worked with the police department in a combined effort to try to learn the details behind the allegations.
