Woman charged with fail­ing to pro­vide care for mother, 90

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A 65-year-old woman has been charged with fail­ing to pro­vide the nec­es­saries of life af­ter her mother was found in an “un­healthy state” Fri­day night.

Po­lice said they checked in on the well-be­ing of a 90-year-old woman, who was liv­ing with her daugh­ter around Bar­ton Street East and Emer­ald Street North about 7:30 p.m.

The home was found in a “de­plorable con­di­tion,” and po­lice said they be­came con­cerned about the level of care the mother was re­ceiv­ing.

Po­lice charged the daugh­ter with fail­ing to pro­vide the nec­es­saries of life, be­cause of the “lack of care, food and the con­di­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment” her mother was liv­ing in.

The mother was taken to hos­pi­tal with de­hy­dra­tion and is in “con­tin­ued care,” po­lice said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Det. Const. Jon VanOene at 905-546-3818.
