The law is that a child must support an aged parent.  It doesn't matter if the parent failed to pay child support, although if a child challenged the obligation to support an absent parent, I suppose that would be a factor in any decision.  The way to get around the law is to terminate parental rights before the parent is aged.

The same in France.
And now, with the price for the medical centers for the elderly, a tsunami is on the way.
The average pension should be around €1200.
Public medical centers are full, and private ones cost between €2500 and €4000.So when all your assets have been swallowed by the private medical center, yours children have to answer.

I don't understand how a child can be legally obligated to support somebody
that they didn't create and was born before they were born, but I know very
little about foreign constitutions.

Didn't most people, at some time, support their families, including the elderly?  Don't we owe an obligation to those who loved, provided for, and raised us? 


The laws are not typically required, just as laws to not abuse your children are not required for the vast majority of parents. 


On another note, elderly abuse is a very real thing now - financial, emotional, and/or physical abuse.  Sometimes, all three.

Let me clarify regarding my comment, it was about being forced into supporting
a dead beat Dad or someone like that. If you have real parents then of course
you should help take care of them when they are elderly.

I agree. In western society, it seems this has become a burden when it should be an act of love.

I would say putting your elderly parents into care homes is a form of abuse, too.

Which makes it even more interesting that with the pandemic people complain about being unable to visit their parents.... tht they never visited anyway.

Nursing home can be more expensive than many families can afford.  As I understand it, parents would probably pay until their savings are exhausted.  Then they are not allowed to take parents home for not paying.  At that point parents would stay in nursing home with nothing being paid.  As such, why would children pay and go bankrupt also?

Unsure how in the US. In the Netherlands there is only a difference in level of service. Those who have savings get a better apartment and some extra amenities. Once savings run out, service is to standard level. Basics are paid by the health insurance.
