Elderly Woman Allegedly Raped at Nursing Home

An Illinois man is behind bars after police say he sexually assaulted an 82-year-old woman at a Parkview Terrace nursing home. He was arrested after a nursing home employee saw him raping a woman. The court records show that a 57-year-old worker at the nursing home had sexual intercourse with an 82-year-old resident. Another employee walked into the room and saw the man having sex with a woman who could not give him consent. The Illinois Department of Public Health has concluded an investigation and says that the nursing home did not violate any rules or regulations. Elderly sexual abuse cannot be tolerated at any nursing homes, and background checks must be done to ensure this does not happen. To read more about the sexual abuse, click here.
