Aged care worker in New Zealand under investigation after photos mocked residents

Aged care worker in New Zealand under investigation after photos mocked residents
An aged care worker who looks after dementia patients is under investigation after sharing photos mocking elderly residents on social media.
The photos were taken at Awanui Rest Home in AucklandNew Zealand, over the weekend and showed an unnamed employee posing with residents.
They were posted to Facebook and Snapchat with captions such as, ‘sugar mummy’ and ‘me and my sugar daddy today’, the New Zealand Herald reported.
Another photo was posted of a elderly woman laying on a bed with the caption: ‘I’m straight-up not having a good time.’

The man was not wearing a face mask in some photos and was pictured in others with his mouth open – running the risk of infecting people in his care with COVID-19.
A woman who did not know the employee personally but was friends with him on Snapchat shared the photos on Facebook to alert his managers, before she realised he had included the name of the facility in the original posts. 
‘I just wanted people to be aware of what was happening behind closed doors to those poor people in his hands,’ she told the publication.
The woman wrote in her Facebook post that his attempts at humour were disrespectful.
‘This is somebody’s loved ones this is happening to, and I hope their families see this and can use this to get justice. Nobody deserves this kind of treatment,’ she wrote. 
Sharyn Gray, the manager of the facility, would not comment on the employee’s behaviour but told the publication an investigation had been launched.
