The women had plastic surgery, went shopping, took cruises and even rented a Rolls Royce Ghost for 5 days that added up to $5000.
The ladies were working for Indian River Home Health Care in Vero Beach when the families notified the Florida Health Department of the fraud that they were suspecting. Once the health department let the company know they terminated the ladies and notified police.
Authorities did a four month investigation on the women before closing the case Tuesday March 13 and going to the ladies homes in Vero Beach with search warrants.
The women were arrested and charged with scheme to defraud, organized fraud and exploitation of the elderly. Both ladies are being held in Indian River County with no bail.
