A woman who was arrested for taking dementia-stricken mother out of her care home has shared the shocking moment carers coldly cut her window visit short after ‘ignoring concerns’ about her health.
Ylenia Angeli, 73, was detained by police on suspicion of assault last month after trying to take her 97-year-old mother Tina Thornborough out of the Northgate House care home in East Riding, and bring her home before lockdown.
In a shocking new video posted to Facebook Saturday, a concerned Ylenia told a carer she feared for her mother’s health, that her ‘lips are blue and her breathing is too fast’, but was quickly dismissed and told to ‘ring up on Monday’ because the carer ‘isn’t a manager’.
As she continued to express her concerns, the carer spoke over Ylenia and promptly took away her mother and closed the blinds as her daughter begged repeatedly ‘hang on a minute don’t take her away, don’t take her away’.
Speaking to FEMAIL, Ylenia’s daughter Leandra Ashton – who starred in the ITV soap Coronation Street – lashed out at the ‘so-called carers’ who are ‘wielding the power they’ve been given.
MailOnline has contacted Northgate House care home for comment.
