Topic: The elder care vocation presents unique opportunities for advancing what God values by promoting the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of older people.
General Purpose: To inform
Specific Purpose: To inform my audience how the elder care vocation can be a platform for promoting the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of older people, something God values according to Scripture (Lev. 19:32; Job 12:12; Prov. 16:31; Isa. 46:3–4).
According to Dr. Cathleen Carr, an eldercare specialist and founder of CetifiedCare, ‘The demand for elder caregivers is growing rapidly as the population of the United States faces record growth in the elderly population.’”[footnoteRef:1] Indeed, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for personal care aides will climb 70.5% between 2010 and 2020” (BLS).[footnoteRef:2] [1: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/1/prweb9119048.htm] [2: http://www.bls.gov/emp/ep_table_103.htm]

Transition: Let’s take a closer look at this.
I. Main Point 1. America’s population is aging.
A. According to statistics from the United Nations Population Division, the percentage of Americans who are age 65 and older has grown from 8.3% in 1950, to 9.8% in 1970, to 12.3% in 1990, to 13% in 2010. This figure is expected to grow to 19.8% in 2030 and 21.6% in 2050.[footnoteRef:3] [3: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/02/04/business/aging-population.html]
B. The Population Reference Board, in a 2011 report, attributed this shift to a number of factors, such as declining birth rates, reductions in mortality at older ages, and the advances in the treatment of diseases and chronic conditions.[footnoteRef:4] [4: http://www.prb.org/pdf11/aging-in-america.pdf]
C. As America’s older demographic grows, one reasonably infers, so will the demand for addressing the wants and the needs that older people often have.
