Elderly Challenge - Observation 1

(I sincerely apologize, but without my phone, I really cannot take any photos)

Sometimes, when I see stairs leading up to a hawker centre (like the one in Bedok Market Place), I feel that the elderly would have a lot of trouble going up what seems like 1 floor.

When they go up, they go slowly. Like stepping one step at a time, so that it is safer for them.

The architectural design could have had a lift included. Hence, the elderly would not have to really walk up and down stairs.

For those common neighbourhood hawker centres, we see the different ways the help wheelchair-bounded people. Sometimes, there is a slight slope. Sometimes, there are bigger steps to help the people lifting wheelchairs.
