A nursing home is being sued for allegedly hiring strippers to ‘entertain’ its residents on a regular basis.

The New York home has been hit by a lawsuit brought by the family of an 85-year-old woman who are seeking a ‘seven-figure’ sum in damages.

Bernice Youngblood, who suffers from dementia, was the victim of ‘disgraceful sexual perversion’ when she was subjected to an unwanted performance by a male stripper, the lawsuit claims.

Her family decided to sue after Ms Youngblood’s son discovered a photograph of a semi-naked man gyrating in front of her as she stuffed dollar bills into his briefs.

The family say her money was meant to be locked safely away and claim a nurse tried to snatch back the photo when her son found it among her belongings in January 2013.
