    Concerns victims of elder abuse aren't speaking out

    Concerns victims of elder abuse aren't speaking out


    Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness day

    Age Concern says they deal with up to three cases of elder abuse a day in Auckland alone.

    Types of abuse include physical, financial and psychological.

    Age Concern Auckland CEO Kevin Lamb says abuse is all too common.

    He says one in ten elderly people will be abused or neglected.
