The victim's family recently noticed something unusual about her behavior, finding her flinching at the sight of other people.
This led the woman's grandson to install a hidden camera in her house.
The family took the footage to the police who proceeded to arrest the suspect. The caretaker admitted to the allegations.
An indictment will be filed against her with the Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Police noted that the suspect expressed remorse.
