Holiday work - Part 1: Understanding the ‘The Elderly Challenge’

1. The four key recommendations of the report are elder-friendly housing, barrier-free society, holistic affordable healthcare and eldercare, and active lifestyles and wellbeing.
2. One of the ways is to work with market players to offer reverse mortgage schemes for the elderly HDB flat lessees at commercial terms.
3. One way is to top up Medisave accounts of less well-off Singaporeans when there are budget surpluses. Another way is that family physicians should play an important role in the management of healthcare needs for seniors.
4. As a SST student, I can create elder-friendly products for them, suggest solutions to the government to improve the elderly's  lives, and do service learning to help the elderly.
