The heart wrenching pain of elderlies cannot be imagined by any of us when it comes to even think about being abandoned by their own families. People need to have cruel hearts to leave their parents in such a haunting situation, when they have no other way to live their life like that. Elderlies are dependent on their children, but there are numerous cases that have hit the news headlines of an ill treatment and forced to leave the house after so much torture.
Why Do People Abandon Elderlies?
With changing times and scenarios, the lifestyle has also changed and the younger generation is not ready to dedicate time for their old parents. Instead, a lot of children are okay with leaving their parents and asking them to live in an old age home without their consent. This is one of the types of nursing home abuse and the negligence cases that are now seen frequently. The lawyers at the Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd. are strongly against it and are always there to help the elderly to receive justice.
