Two aides charged in St. James care home assault probe

Winnipeg police have arrested two personal care home aides accused of assaulting elderly residents.

The police service began the investigation into allegations of assault at Extendicare’s Oakview Place, at 2395 Ness Ave., in June, after a whistleblower notified the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. However, the home’s operator, Extendicare, had known about the allegations since February.

The Winnipeg Police Service said Tuesday that after a lengthy probe, investigators determined the two health-care aides allegedly used “inappropriate physical actions” to “gain the compliance” of five residents while performing care duties. None of the victims needed medical treatment.

The two aides were arrested Monday. A 49-year-old woman is facing three assault charges, while a 36-year-old woman is facing two assault charges. Both were released on undertakings.
