Persuasive Speech On Elderly Abuse

Satisfactory Essays
Elder abuse is an under recognized problem with devastating and even life threatening consequences. Anyone who reads my argument should realize the very real possibility that either themselves, or a loved one, may one day need help with the basic activities of living such as cooking, cleaning, or driving to medical appointments. Most of my audience will have personal experience with an aging parent or close family member, and some may have assisted in caring for a loved one or employed elderly care services. From a pathos, emotional appeal, audience members have an elderly family member, grandparents, or know the elderly lady next door, and inherently realize they are aging too and may one day reach a vulnerable point in their own life.
