The first recommendation is that there must be housing for the elderly. A large choice is needed for the elderly to choose from. Some of the factors affecting the type of house they choose include how many people they live in and how much they are willing to spend.

The second recommendation is that places should be elderly accessible. Places should be elderly friendly, free of obstacles like stairs. This is so for the elderly to move around on their own without having to be accompanied by care givers.

The third recommendation is that there should be adequate care for the elderly. The report states that there should be more healthcare and other services for them. This is to allow the elderly to live on their own.

The fourth recommendation is that there should be opportunities for the elderly. The elderly need activities in order to stay active.

HDB should work with sellers to offer reverse mortgage schemes for the elderly.
HDB should also lease flats out at commercial value to provide another option for the elderly to derive income from their homes to make ends meet at old age.
We can help when we grow up by renting flats to elderly at lower prices and renting flats from elderly for higher prices.

We can give up our seats to any elderly on public transport, help them across the road if they need help, and also help them if they fall down.
