Holiday Task - Part 3

This is my room layout:

It is a room with a few items inclusive of a television, cupboard, bed, lamp and a sofa. I think that the room should not have too many things as the elderly might trip over it, so, I think it should be just a simple room. =D

Elderly Challenge - Observation 3...

- Dancing?
- Trekking?
- Swimming?
- Jogging?
Most of the elderly doesn't want to exercise that much now partly because they get very tired easily and also because of their aching body. This might also be the cause of the many illnesses they have. Therefore, I think that we could have some activities once in a while to let the elderly have some exercises so that the elderly would be more fit and they might also make some friends during the activities.

Elderly Challenge - Observation 2...

I have observed that the elderly have very little or no activities during the day. The same goes to my grandparents. Although they still go out to buy things but it is very seldom. I think that the community club could organize more activities and encourage them to go and participate.

Elderly Challenge - Observation 1...

Some old people have difficulty with walking, so, they couldn't get from places to places easily. They will also get tired very easily, taking breaks after walking only a short distance. Even if they take public transport, it will also be very crowded and they might not even get a seat to rest their legs as the other passengers might not be willing to give their seat to the elderly. Sometimes, caretakers will take care of the elderly but some elderly, who do not have a caretaker to take care of, have to take care of them themselves. So, we should also help the elderly when we see one of them in need of help (eg. helping them 2 carry things)
