    Lack of care, lack of respect, loneliness, health problems, emotional trauma and lack of social support. 

    It's like the society is ignorant about the sufferings of the old people.

    I consider the greatest an attitude that age brings incompetence and that "old" people or elders are somehow less than fully alive, or human.

    Being assumed to be gaga or suffering with dementia.   Hard of hearing, so people shout at you.  Just for starters - the list is endless as far as the young dealing with the elderly are concerned.

    Lack of finances, lack of transportation, lack of respect, lack of family close by. And most importantly problems with health issues.
