Respect for Seniors

I have worked with seniors for thirty years ans it saddens me the lack of respect they are treated with.  I am speaking on their behalf but what i am writing is what comes directly from what they tell me daily.  Why is this so in our country? In other countries elders are treated with respect and cared for as they age.  I am not trying to imply that there are no seniors who get the care they need in our country just that there are many very extremely sad cases that exist here and I feel this needs to change.  One way this can is to teach children to respect their grandparents.  When respect is instilled in children at home for elders and others that would be a great beginning to changing their view of things as they get older.  What are your thoughts on this?
