THERE is a growing waiting list of elderly people who have applied or being referred to be accommodated in one of the Golden Age Homes in Labasa, Lautoka, and Suva.

This was noted in the review of the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation’s annual report for the period 2014 to 2017 by the parliamentary standing committee on Social Affairs.

In the review, the committee noted that there was a high demand for the three homes and that the ministry was seeing a trend of old people being abandoned by their families.

More details on this report in today’s edition of The Fiji Times.
