Soapbox

Tonight’s soap by Denise Fleming was on the worrying subject of Elder Abuse in not only our society but is in fact a global problem across all cultures. In New Zealand there are 8 new reported cases per day with 75% of all cases being psychological abuse and 50% being financial. Denise also continued with a report on the ever increasing amount of “Scam” companies who are specifically targeting the Elderly. It was reported that there were 25 of these companies in 2014 and this has risen to 670 in 2016. Has our society reached a new depth?
