A viral TikTok posted by Zander Reyes (@zander_reyes) sparked a debate on the treatment of the elderly in the later stages of their lives.
In the 10-second clip, Reyes shows footage of older-looking folks sitting in a communal area as a TV set plays in a well-lit room.
They write in a caption for the video: “#dontputyourparentsinaretirementhome.”
Reyes writes in a text overlay for the TikTok: “Bust their asses all their life and this is how they have to spend their last years. Heartbreaking.”
