CLERMONT, Fla. – A Florida caregiver is accused of abusing a 94-year-old amputee at an assisted living home.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Soebhagwatie Changoer, 64, was arrested last week after the woman's son placed a camera inside her room at the facility in Clermont.

An arrest report says the woman told her son the caregiver was being too "rough with her." The son viewed the video footage and "discovered his mother was being abused by her caregiver," the report says. 

The son reported what he saw to management at Crane's View Lodge Assisted Living and Memory Care.

Changoer was suspended and the facility reported the incident to the Department of Children and Families and police. She's charged with abuse of an elderly person.

A lawyer wasn't listed for Changoer on arrest records.
