"Diana Rochelle Garrett, 37, and Stephanie Ann Lowden, 50, former staff members at Rolling Green Village Memory Care Assisted Living, are charged with abuse of a vulnerable adult, Flood said.

Lowden turned herself in to authorities Monday morning. Garrett has yet to be arrested.

Flood said an investigation began after deputies were called to Greenville Memorial Hospital on May 22 about injuries to an 89-year-old woman.

Flood said investigators learned that the victim’s son grew suspicious of maltreatment after noticing injuries pop up on the victim’s body.

Flood said the victim’s son placed a camera in his mother’s room. Camera footage showed Garrett and Lowden using physical force and psychological abuse on the victim after she resisted the their demands to take a shower, according to Flood.

The video was turned over to investigators.

Investigators contacted the administrative staff at Rolling Green to make them aware of the situation and said the staff was cooperative and willing to assist during the investigation.

Investigators said they do believe this was an isolated incident and have not learned of any additional residents experiencing similar treatment."

Most of these residents are on medication that thins the blood. It is hard to tell if they are abused, they are bumping into things, unseen accidents, unseen altercations with other patients or simply bleeding because of too much medication. There had to be other signs of stuff going on honestly. If those two aides did that together likelihood that the other aides accepted or engaged in same behavior is very high. Nursing facilities ESPECIALLY memory care units like aides that always show up and work overtime - not their care or skill level. Life blows!
