I Hate People Who Take Advantage of the Elderly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 435 People

    My friend's brother has orchestrated the

    divorce of his elderly parents for his own financial gain. The parents are elderly and the mother has beginnings of dementia. The brother was estranged (and written out of the parents trust) and never did anything for the parents. My friend provided care for years and finally...

    Cowards.

    So because they're old and fragile, that gives you a right to take advantage of them? They're people. Goddamnit, abusers, neglecters, all you dumb ***** who think old people aren't worthy of respect and such, there's absolutely no reason to be such an idiot.

    Elderly

    Many take advantage of the elderly cause they want one thing = money.  After the money is given, barely any respect left.

    I Love Old People

    I adore old people. I think they often get the raw end of the deal, people treat them like second class citizans sometimes. Often my grandads doctors have told me whats wrong with him rather than telling him just because I'm there, I think that is so damned rude! He's a person...

    You're Lazy & Sick!

    I mean what kind of weak ***** dirt sucking scum goes after a flower with a weed whacker. That's some evil ****, preying on the weak and older people who went before you and did it honorably. How do you do it, how do you not kill yourself from shame?

    Old People Are Leaders

    Old people just like other people should be respected and treated fairly. One day we will all be old. I used to fear old age because I believe I would have to face the extremities of becoming weak, ugly and forgetful, and having to be cared for. I think about it and begin to hurt...

    my own... at least, to appreciate. One died in 1989 (far before I was born) and the other three died within six weeks of each other in 2005 (two in two days!!) -- October 15, November 29, and December 1. So maybe you could consider me biased or nostalgic for something I never...

    We Will All Be Old

    Every single one of us is going to get old, and I do not think that we want to be treated like crap when we do.  So why, at a younger age, would you treat an elderly person badly?  Karma's a *****, people. And besides, it's just wrong to take advantage of and...

    People who take advantage of the Elderly parents

    or elderly people should never be mistreated, disrespectful or never allowed to be near elderly people. They all needed love & be protected always. I love my elderly adoptive parents, plus are very active. Staying strong and healthy keep my parents happy & alive!

    All that would show is

    that they created a monster in the generations after them. Which just points that we as people have failed.
