There could be more cases of elder abuse that have gone unreported ("Govt unit saw over 100 cases of vulnerable adult abuse"; Oct 3).
This is why it is important for the Government to look into this matter seriously.
Volunteers should make regular visits to seniors, especially those in the lower-income groups who may be more vulnerable.
Seniors living alone are particularly vulnerable. More funds should be channelled towards ensuring their welfare.
