Pasco caregiver pleads guilty to stealing from patient

An in-home caregiver who was accused last year of stealing more than $3,000 from a patient has pleaded guilty to exploitation of the elderly.

Paula R. Sanders, 32, received five years of probation and must repay the money. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said Sanders, 9201 Ledgestone Lane in Port Richey, provided full-time living assistance for her 84-year-old patient, who suffered from dementia and lived in Hudson. Sanders took four checks from the patient totalling $3,415 and used some of the money to pay for her apartment lease, the sheriff's report said.
