Understanding the 'Elderly Challenge"

Explain in your own words, the FOUR key recommendations of the report.
1. Making travelling from one place to another easier and more convenient for the elderly.
2. Make a barrier-free society.
3. Let the elderly have affordable healthcare.
4. Ensure that the elderly are active and well.

State ONE way that the CAI report is recommending to make our public housing more elderly-friendly
We should vary the length of land leases as shorter land leases will ease the progress of retirement housing by the private sector.

State TWO ways on how we can ensure that the quality of elderly care here in Singapore is affordable
Follow-up by a committed family physician within close proximity to the customer will confirm that the elderly's several needs will be taken care of thoroughly and holistically.
Top up Medisave accounts of less well-off Singaporeans when there are budget excess that the Government can share with the citizens.

After reading the CAI report, what do you are the THREE things that you can do, as an SST student, to help overcome these elderly challenges
I can write to HDB to suggest some ways to make flats mor elderly friendly.
I can tell my friends and family about these elderly challenges to spread the message.
I can make a poster encouraging people to help the elderly.
