Housing for seniors
Singapore will try to meet the needs of the elderly with a range of housing options.

Accessibility for the seniors
The built environment and transport system will be more elder-friendly and allow seniors to lead active and fruitful lives

Caring for seniors
Healthcare and Eldercare will be more efficient and more cost efficient, and will be easily accessible by the elderly in the community

Opportunities for seniors
The seniors will lead a healthy and active lifestyle with fulfilling relationships with everyone.

One way that the CAI report is recommending to make our public housing more elderly-friendly:

Install grab bars in the bathroom and toilets with non-slip floor tiles.

Two ways on how we can ensure that the quality of elderly care here in Singapore is affordable

We can provide a complementary range and option of services for Singaporeans who need care so that we afford a reasonable level of care services.

The Singapore government should top up Medisave accounts for the less well-to-do so that the elderly have the means to afford healthcare services.

The three things that I can do, as an SST student, to help overcome these elderly challenges

I can observe the "daily routines" of the elderly to see what are the problems that they are facing and hopefully come up with a plan to help solve it.

I can help to raise funds for those elderly who needs financial assistance.

I can do voluntary work to aid the financially burdened elderly
