    This episode was sad and tough to watch, because it may not be one of those child episodes, this one had to do with an Elderly Woman, It hurts seeing such a pour woman suffer... I gave it a small score, because It hurts to watch..moreless

    When an elderly woman breaks into an apartment, but has no idea who she is or why she is there, Detectives Benson and Stabler are called to the scene. Based on the markings on her body, they believe that she may have been attacked. Afterr a while the Detectives are able to identify the victim as Bess Sherman. They first suspect that her son is responsible for her abuse after they find that she was kept in restraints during the night. They soon forget about her son, and turn their sights on the assited living home where she had been living when they find that one of the nurses aids was far from nice to the residents. This was a good episode. I am only 22 years old, but this episode made me think about where I would go when I am older and need care. It is scary to think about how people abuse and take advantage of the elderly. It is really sad that people would stoop so low.moreless
