I think that the word "victim" is wrongly used.

Your conclusion must specifically refer to the elders, and restate summary again.

Clearly you have written under the required word count, and it is likely that you will be penalized for this fault.
Your second paragraph does not seem to delve much into the reasons behind the difficulties that the elderly often find when they use hi-tech devices. It looks a bit facile.
