After receiving complaints of abuse, the Florida Department of Children and Families and the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration are investigating Clare Bridge home for seniors, a facility that provides care for residents suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Cape Coral Police are investigating as well.
Reportedly, family members of two male residents went to Cape Coral Police with the abuse allegations. According to one man, his 89 year-old father-in-law had facial bruising. Facility staff explained away the injury as a result of the man falling from a couch. The other man reported that his father said that someone would not let go of his thumb.
The investigations continue.
