As Singapore population grows older, it becomes increasingly important that we consider the needs for our elders. We have to think from their perspective and small home improvements such as grab bars, anti-slip mats could help improve their daily living. These needs differ between individuals and could require customisation for your homes. Every bear will grow old some day. It’s never too early to plan in advance!
Reach! Gov: Madam Halimah highlighted that the elderly community is not a homogenous one, and that it is important to address the needs of our elderly across various generations, backgrounds and life circumstances. She added, “To be better prepared to handle the needs of our ageing population, governments, healthcare and elderly housing providers and the community as a whole will need to be actively involved in the strategies that will allow successful ageing not only in Singapore, but also across Asia to be in line with our traditions, needs and cultures.”
