The house should enable the elderly to live a normal life with their family. There should be a wide range of housing to meet the elderly’s needs. Homes should be catered to all ages.

Homes should be accessible to the elderly. They should be able to reach their homes with ease. Lifts, walkways and pick up points should be built.

Seniors should have good healthcare and for those who cannot live alone, there should be old folks homes.

There should be opportunities for the elderly so they can have good relationships with their families and friends. People of all ages should have a good attitude to the seniors.

They are planning to make housing more accessible to the elderly population.

We can cut back on the less nessacary things and keep the important things of a good quality.

Hospitals should hire cheap workers to keep the bill low.

I can help the elderly preform tasks and encourace others to have a good attitude towards the elderly. I can also design things to help the ellderly.

1) how can we make it easier for the elderly to move around?
We should make public places such as shopping centers have ramps. places like HDB flats should also have ramps and lifts stopping at every floor to help the elderly.
2)How can we help the elderly live safely at home?
we should install handrails in their rooms. there should be enhanced security and ways to detect when the elderly person has fallen down.
3)how can we make the younger generation accept the elderly?
we can educate the younger generation on the eldery's problems. we can also hold family days for the elderly to spend the day with their family members.
