Baby Boomers Are In For Some Rude Surprises

NORTH WILMINGTON, Del. - April 16, 2008 (WPVI) -- New Castle County Police arrested 46-year-old Louanna Gary, of the 2200 block of Rosewood Drive, in the community of Lancashire. She is charged with intentionally abusing an infirmed adult and causing harm to an 82-year-old male, for whom she was supposed to be providing care.

On February 20, 2008, emergency personnel responded to the home after Gary called 911 to report the victim needed medical attention. The victim was transported to the hospital and found to have a core body temperature of 87 degrees. He was admitted to the intensive care unit for treatment of severe dehydration, hypothermia, and numerous sores to his back, legs and groin.

A joint investigation between the county and Attorney General's Office has revealed Gary has been responsible for taking care of the victim for the past two years. In addition to his poor medical condition, the unkempt condition of the home was also unhealthy.
