OUR country will be a aged country in 15 years with 12% of the people aged 60 years and above.
The days that elderly people staying with their extended family will be diminishing and many senior citizens will have to stay on their own in future.
For senior citizens to live alone they need to be in good health and have a roof over their heads.
With good health and a house of their own it will enable the pensioners to live their golden years without having to worry about who will look after them.
There will be many affordable homes being built and we hope that priority will given to people in their late 30s and 40s so that they will have a house when they retire upon reaching 60.
When they have a house, the likelihood of them being abandoned is much less.
Without having to pay rent every month they will be able to live on a small amount money and thus reduce the chance of them being abandoned.
Rental will be high in future. If they do not have a house, the rental will eat away their savings quickly.
Property will appreciate in time and when misfortune, like having a major illness, strikes them, they can sell the property to meet the cost.
