Caregiver handed 6-months to jail for abandoning elderly Taiwanese woman



n Indonesian caregiver was handed down a sentence of six months in prison or pay a fine of NT$180,000 for abandoning the 90-year-old Taiwanese woman in her care, announced the Taiwan Supreme Court.

The Indonesian caregiver, surnamed Kurniasih, was tasked with caring for a 90-year-old woman surnamed Kao, who suffered from Parkinson's disease and dementia, reported ET Today.

Kurniasih claimed that because Kao frequently bit and beat her, she could not take it any longer and tied the woman down to her wheelchair, before packing her bags and fleeing the home.

An earlier court ruled that, because Kurniasih was employed as a caregiver by Kao's family and she was aware that the elderly woman had no ability to move independently and survive on her own, she was found to be negligent for abandoning her patient.
