A former Texas caregiver is accused of assaulting a 91-year-old patient at an assisted living facility, according to officials with the Collin County Sheriff’s Office.

When she was arrested last month, Glenda Basanes, 44, of Richardson, also was in possession of $50,000 in counterfeit money.

Basanes is accused of assaulting a 91-year-old woman at the facility in Lucas and also assaulting a 33-year-old woman, according to the sheriff’s office. Lucas is about 60 miles northeast of Fort Worth.

Basanes remained in the Collin County Jail in McKinney on Monday in lieu of $62,000 bail.

Basanes faces charges of assault of an elderly person and possession of a controlled substance, according to jail records. She also was being held on nursing regulations.

An investigation by deputies with the Collin County Sheriff’s Office and officials with Texas Health and Human Services began June 24 when investigators received a report of a possible assault at the Lucas facility.

“It was determined that Glenda Basanes, a former caregiver of the facility, was falsely representing herself as a registered nurse,” according to a news release posted Monday on the Collin County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

The news release did not provide any other details on the assaults or the name of the facility.

Basanes was booked into jail on June 28.
