Amanda Boren

TRIGG COUNTY, KY – A Cadiz, Kentucky, woman is accused of hurting an Alzheimer’s disease patient in her care.

The Trigg County Sheriff’s Department says 41-year-old Amanda Charlene Boren has been charged with fourth degree assault. Boren was the caretaker of an elderly woman who, in addition to having Alzheimer’s, has had a stroke. Boren is accused of pushing the woman into a chair.

The sheriff’s department says the patient’s son had installed a camera in the home, because he had concerns about Boren. Deputies say the camera captured the abuse.
