A former caregiver to seniors with Alzheimer's disease is going to jail for financially exploiting patients.
Heather Whitehouse, 23, of Colchester was sentenced by Judge Linda Levitt to two to four years in jail, six months to serve, followed by four years of probation.
The charges stemmed from Whitestone's employment as a caregiver at The Arbors in Shelburne, a residential care community dedicated to serving seniors with Alzheimer's disease and related memory impairments.
Whitehouse was arrested Dec. 11 and charged with financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult, false pretense, unlawful taking of tangible personal property and fraudulent use of a credit card, for allegedly stealing the card and making 22 unauthorized purchases totaling more than $4,000.
