PM: Senior citizens to get better support

KUALA LUMPUR: The government will enhance support systems for senior citizens to ensure that their needs are well taken care of, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Prime Minister said the government also planned to expand the services of senior citizen centres to all parliamentary constituencies, in line with the concept of Keluarga Malaysia (the Malaysian Family).

“As of today, 140 senior citizen centres have been set up nationwide,” he said in a Facebook post yesterday in conjunction with National Senior Citizen’s Day, which was celebrated with the theme “Digital Equity for All Ages”.

While wishing Happy Senior Citizen’s Day to all senior citizens nationwide, the Prime Minister said Malaysia would strive to create more senior citizen-friendly towns in future.

Furthermore, the National Senior Citizen Registration System will be improved and its services expanded.

“Malaysia is expected to become an ageing nation by 2030, with 15% of the population aged 60 and above,” Ismail Saabri said. — Bernama
