Between 2020 and 2046, Malaysia’s 65+ population will double from 7% to 14%. Health experts have called for a review of policies to improve the nation’s preparedness for elderly care. While elderly care can be difficult with its many demands, it is still important to provide them what they deserve for their own health, safety, and well-being. My 84 years old grandfather is the eldest member of my family. Because my parents are in full-time employment, he often stays alone at home during the morning when my parents go to work while my brother, sister and I go to school. With nobody at home, we always worried about accidents happen on him, such as a fall, or incidents like a stroke or heart attack, could occur without anyone being aware of it. He is also facing some hearing loss problem that commonly faced by the elderly. Sometimes, he doesn’t notice when people are calling him using phone and there are visitors ringing doorbell outside the house when he is watching TV or cooking.
