No fa­cil­i­ties for el­derly in malls

New Straits Times - - Letters - M. GANESHADEVA, Kuala Lumpur

fea­tures in pub­lic places and build­ings for the el­derly and dis­abled are few and far be­tween.

Seats for the el­derly and dis­abled in shop­ping malls don’t ex­ist, and rail­ings on stair­cases are hard to come by.

Se­niors are at the mercy of mo­torists when cross­ing roads.

I am happy to see that some Hindu tem­ples keep chairs at the back of tem­ples for the el­derly and dis­abled to sit and pray.

Malaysia is be­com­ing an age­ing so­ci­ety, so it’s vi­tal that dis­abled­friendly fea­tures are avail­able in pub­lic spa­ces and build­ings.
