In contemporary society, the elderly, constituting the second most dependent demographic, are regrettably receiving insufficient attention. Despite the presence of protective legislation, instances of elder abuse persist, often unreported. This article examines the alarming trend of neglect and exploitation faced by elderly parents, revealing a concerning lack of prioritization. It emphasizes the growing selfishness among children who, in forgetting their indebtedness to their parents, fail in their duty to provide care. The focus of this article is to underscore the importance of elder parent care and custody, urging heightened awareness, strengthened legal safeguards, and an enhanced societal commitment to uphold the well-being and dignity of our aging population.
