Calgary Caregivers Convicted in Shocking Senior Abuse Case Caught on Video

July 21, 2015

The family of an elderly Calgary man who was abused by three caregivers believe the 92-year-old’s death was hastened by his assault, court heard Tuesday.

In a victim impact statement prepared by Ulrich (Uli) Wissner’s son, Peter Wissner said the family suffers the guilt of not making his final days more comfortable.

“Our family believes that Uli’s own life ended sooner as a result of the assault,” the son wrote, in the statement read in by Crown prosecutor Susan Kennedy.

“At the very least the assault resulted in ... the last month of his life being afraid, mostly alone, helpless and angry, instead of comfortable, safe and loved,” he wrote.

The younger Wissner said his father became reluctant to eat, take medications, or receive basic care following the assault on Feb. 7, 2014.

The elder Wissner died March 6, 2014, less than a month after he was attacked by caregivers Maria Dumo, Anjela Borja and May Casimero at the CareWest Garrison Green on Don Ethell Blvd. S.W.

The assault was captured on a surreptitiously placed video camera the son installed after his father repeatedly complained he was being hurt by his caregivers.

“Three individuals have been identified and terminated, but we cannot be certain these were the only ones mistreating Uli,” the son said.


He said the family can no longer take comfort with the belief the victim’s final days were comfortable.
