Two homes for the aged closed down as several cases of abuse reported to police

Two homes for the aged have been closed down and several cases of elder abuse in both homes and private residences have been reported to the police.

The social development minister says in a six month period they received 72 reports of abuse.

But as Melissa Williams-Sambrano tells us, while the ministry's division of ageing has been doing inspections, its minister laments that more cannot be done because of the number of homes in the country.
