96-year-old woman walks away from Cumberland Manor

Interesting story in the paper today:

The chairman of the advisory board at the county Office on Aging on Tuesday railed against cuts made at the Cumberland Manor, stating that the staffing reductions have made the nursing home an unsafe environment for its patients.

Speaking before the county freeholders, Matt Cyrelson bolstered his point stating his own mother, a 96-year-old resident at the Manor who suffers from dementia, was able to wander away from the nursing home and was later found at the other end of Sunny Slope Drive, in Hopewell Township.
