Social Services Minister, Catherine Daniel, says the government is cognizant of the emerging concern of abuse to the elderly.
She says the DLP administration has been quite proactive in the provision of services to assist the elderly on island.
Last Wednesday Dominica joined the rest of the international community in observance of International Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
The International network for the prevention of elder abuse and the World Health Organization at the UN launched the world’s first elder abuse awareness day on June 15 2006 all in an effort to unite communities around the world in raising awareness about elder abuse.
Daniel says however; it should not be left to the government only to look after the well being of the elderly.
