Sons who dump their elderly

An increasing number of elderly folk who are turning up at welfare homes on their own because their families cannot afford to care for them. Maybe I am the one in the near future if my sons do not want to provide monthly assistant to me.
I have done all my duty with many hardship as a father to rise them with good care, I have assist them with money business and property; today they are successful businessman.
I am old and sick now, they do not want to care me or provide any monthly living to me; they dump me as if I am an unwanted material. I do not know how to get them back, I call them by phone there are no reply, I keep on calling… however they close-up their phone. I go to their shop they drive off with their big-car. 
I need my Elders Son, my Second Son and my Fourth Son to care for my living because they owned me too much and today they are a successful businessman and have lots of money; they travel by airplane something like travel by bus; they eat big-fish and big-meat in restaurant while me their father only eat blank-foods and simple vegetable; it is their duty as a son to care me; it is their duty to care for their Old-age father.
‘I want to tell my Sons’ please do not commit mischief; you are responsible to care me or you will be regret when time comes.
It is a crime for children to abandon their elderly parents; 
The old age is not without problems. In old age physical strength deteriorates, mental stability diminishes; money power becomes bleak coupled with negligence from the younger generation.
It is then children began to see their parents as burden. It is these parents who at times wander out of their homes or are thrown out. Some dump their old parents or grandparents in old-age homes and don’t even come to visit them anymore.
Most welfare home residents stay until their final days, away from their families.
News reports since last indicated that a growing number of elderly people had been abandoned by their children.
Suggestions have been made for to adopt a law allowing elderly parents to claim maintenance from their financially-able children.
The Maintenance of Parents Act enables parents above 58 years old, who cannot support themselves, to seek legal action compelling their children to provide maintenance for them is needed.
Moreover a Maintenance Act enables an aged parent to demand maintenance from children in the same way that a wife can demand it from her husband is needed too.
Otherwise “it is the responsibility of the Government to care for the elderly. They have contributed to nation-building and should reap the benefits in their later years.”
However, a suggestion there is punishment on those who abandoned their elderly parents and it is a crime for children to abandon their elderly parents.  
The state and its administration may act against children who dump their elderly parents.
Children who dump their elderly parents in hospitals or nursing homes could be taken to task and forced to help pay for their parents’ care.
The administration may study how best to use the Maintenance of Parents Act to get such children to do their filial duty.
Please help me or tell me what I should do to get my Sons back.     
I beg God to mercy on me and forgive my sin;  
May God Bless you all?
Thanks
