Hamilton woman facing fraud charges in connection to Lincoln long-term care home


A Hamilton woman has been arrested in connection to a suspected fraud involving a long-term care home in Lincoln.

In October of 2019, the Niagara Regional Police Central Fraud Unit says they commenced an investigation into suspected fraudulent activities involving a long-term care home in the town of Lincoln.

The investigation revealed that in June of 2019, the facility had entered into a contract with the Director of Divine Home Care, a company providing temporary Personal Support Workers (PSWs).

The Central Fraud Unit Detectives further learned that certain workers provided were not certified Personal Support Workers.

As a result of the investigation, on Thursday (May 28), Niagara police say they arrested 41-year-old Diana Ojesebholo of Hamilton.

Ojesebholo was charged with the alleged offences of:

  • Fraud Over $5000
  • Uttering a Forged Document (3 Counts)

Ojesebholo has since been released from custody, police say, with a scheduled court date in late July in St. Catharines.

There are no concerns for the well-being of the residents located at the long-term care facilities, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable David Bozza at 905-688-4111 at ext. 9352
