George lived with two family friends who served as his caregivers. A home-care agency reported that George was poorly cared for, but when George was finally taken to the hospital, he was too sick to recover. After he died from severe, untreated bedsores, his caregivers came under scrutiny. They are now accused of neglect, allegedly having left him dirty, let pressure sores develop, and denied him his medication while they took money out of his bank account.
