Grandmother Margaret Collins, 91, was forced to move from her care home after the attendants teased her and posted it on social media, according to reports.
Ms Collins was in the care of Brayan Cortez and Jamie Montesa at Abington, Glenview nursing home when the devious duo filmed themselves taunting the dementia sufferer in Illinois.
In the video, Ms Collins can be seen pushing the Cortez and Montesa away from her as she becomes increasingly distressed.
According to ABC 7, the cruel video was shot and posted days before Christmas.
“She’s waving her arms because of one reason. She doesn’t have mobility to get away”
Tom Collins, Ms Collins’ son told ABC 7: “She’s waving her arms because of one reason. She doesn’t have mobility to get away. That’s the only option she has to protect herself.”
Callous Cortez and Montesa were fired as a result of the incident and Glenview Police charged the pair with misdemeanour disorderly conduct.
The footage of the dementia sufferer was captioned with the words “Margaret hares gowns” and includes two laughing face emojis.
Ms Collins’ devastated daughter Joan Biebel said: “You’re just like, this is somebody’s sick idea of entertainment?”
An attorney for the family said: “Margaret’s privacy was clearly violated, they had no right to have cell phones in there.”
Members of the 91-year-old’s family have complained sacking of staff didn’t happen fast enough, claiming the care home had tried to turn a blind eye to the situation.
In a statement, Ms Collins’ nursing home said: “The privacy and dignity of our residents are of the utmost concern at the Abington. Recently, two employees were immediately terminated when it was determined that they violated our standards and policies.”
Illinois Department of Public Health said Abington failed to implement its own abuse prevention policy.
