Yes I have, I've witnessed both my late father and mother get abused by younger Millenials all the time. In some very disgusting manners.

The general Millenial hatred for Baby Boomers and the silent generation is causing Elder Abuse to become absolutely epidemic today.

And yes it's partly scientific(and the boomers did it themselves to their parents too):

So at least we can get comfort from the fact the "OK Boomer" and "Boomers are evil" are going to scientifically get a taste of their own medicine, at least the ones lucky enough to survive to old age.

To me the number one cause is personally Ageism.

No, everybody accepts the wisdom that goes with my crop of white hair. ;)

Honestly, the only problem kids in the West have today is that they don't know just how privileged they are. That blind spot in their vision is all the more surprising since a quick glance at the rest of the world would have to convince anybody of this fact.

Take a look at the "type of people" and the demographic taking care of all these old people in the nursing homes.

In some cases it's easy to understand how a Black woman being paid little more than minimum wage could grow to become resentful of having to care for a fussy elderly white patient who does not entirely have all their marbles and is being difficult.
In some cases they may be harboring some degree of inner racial resentment, and take it out on the patient.

Keeping elderly people in lockdown away from their families is institutional elder abuse. I hope the next time a pandemic comes along there is some kind of contingency plan that allows families to whisk their loved ones away from those hell holes where the elderly were left to rot.
