Report: abuse, filthy conditions at KY rest home

WHITESBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - State officials say residents at a former eastern Kentucky rest home lived in filthy conditions, suffered verbal abuse from staff, and often lacked adequate food and hot water.

Golden Years Rest Home in Letcher County was closed by the state in September and its former administrator was convicted of theft, exploitation of an adult and tax fraud.

The home's recent troubles included felony charges against two top administrators and the 2007 death of a resident who wandered away from the home and froze.
