Elder Abuse Levels Shocking and Deeply Worrying, Says AM (WALES, UK)

Shadow Minister for Equality Mohammad Asghar has highlighted his deep concern at the levels of elder abuse in Wales.
Speaking in the Senedd on this week, he said: “It is deeply worrying that Wales has the highest prevalence of elder abuse in the United Kingdom.
“Figures from the UK study of abuse and neglect suggest that 6 per cent of elderly people have suffered.
“It is horrific to hear from Age Cymru that elder abuse is often perpetrated by people who are trusted by or have a relationship with the victim.”
He highlighted shocking figures which suggest “39,000 elderly people in Wales are being abused or neglected in their own homes” and asked the First Minister how the Welsh Assembly Government can “raise awareness of elder abuse” and raise awareness of “how to identity it”.
