Resort-style living for retirees

Singapore is looking at providing more options for elderly care, including assisted living facilities, said Health Minister Gan Kim Yong. These facilities allow seniors to retain their independence by living at home, instead of in a more institutionalised setting such as a nursing home.

In places like the United States, assisted living facilities are well-established. In some states, the idea has gone beyond simple facilities and moved towards providing ‘resort-style’ conditions, reports the New York Times. The idea is a simple one: Ageing does not necessarily have to be about institutionalised care.
