Rights of Senior Citizens to be Protected with Newer Policies

New Policies to Protect Senior Citizens RightsSeveral new policies will be carried out in the city that will protect the rights of senior citizens and at the same time improve the quality of their life. Policies will include the addition of more community service centers, an allocation system will be established for public lottery funds benefiting seniors and more beds at local nursing homes.

The city is planning to place the care of the elderly as top priority for the lottery fund allocation. Policies will also include a designated portion of apartments in government supported housing projects will be offered to elderly residents namely those with low income. Real estate developers are now required to set aside a portion of land that will be used to construct an elderly service center in planned residential developments. Local government said that there should be at least one care center for the elderly built in each subdistrict by 2014.

Furthermore the city is planning to build a new care center for its seniors and will be upgrading its existing nursing homes. The upgrade will provide around 700 more beds and professional care to seniors who are living alone and have low income or suffering from disabilities.
