Write a speech in 150-200 words on difficulties faced by senior citizens.

Good morning respected Principal, teachers, and my dear friends! Today I am going to speak about the difficulties faced by senior citizens. We are the citizens of the country which shows love and care for the elderly. However, now this value is found to be disappearing. Old age is viewed as an unavoidable, undesirable and problem-ridden phase of life. Old age is a period of physical decline. Even if one does not become sans eyes, sans teeth, sans everything, right away, one does begin to slow down physically. Older people are susceptible to psychotic depression. Decline in mental ability makes them dependent. They want to tighten their grip over the younger ones. Death of a spouse creates a feeling of loneliness and isolation. The negligence and indifferent attitude of the family members towards the older people creates more emotional problems. Retirement from service usually results in loss of income. Grandparents provide an additional source of affection.

Let us not isolate them for we all have to come to this stage one day.

Thank you
