2)Public Buses should have priority seats specially for the elderly.
3)When the government have Budget surpluses,they can top up the elderly Medisave accounts so that they will have to money to see doctor and/or by medicine.
4)Organise activities and programmes for the elderly to take part in so that they can learn how to live a lifestyle they would want to have.

They recommended to vary the length of land leases as shorter land leases can develop retirement housing by the private sector.

2)The government can lessen the amount of money needed for the elderly to take transport,etc.

1)We can start by taking care of our grandparents first.
2)We can also help by making posters or booths in public places to help promote taking care of the elderly.
3)We can help any elderly we see in public places.For e.g. If we see an elderly crossing the road,we can help them cross the road.
