A woman in the care of her daughter and granddaughter was reportedly discovered in a health-compromising state of neglect, and the authorities have charged the caregiving family members for the allegations.
47-year-old Shannon Tipton lives with and cares for her 74-year-old mother, of whom she has financial power of attorney, at a residence in Pittsylvania County. Shannon’s daughter, 26-year-old Brianna Tipton, also lives at the address. It was reported that Shannon is given payment from Medicare for the aid she provides to her mother.
On March 18, Sovah Hospital in Danville was administering treatment and care to Shannon’s mother, and after putting a Foley catheter in place the woman was released and allowed to return home.
