Posts Tagged ‘Elderly mobility market trolley’

1.    I often see an elderly woman who uses a common market trolley as a walking aid

Easily available at most supermarket and hardware store but cannot be seated

to move slowly but surely across a traffic light junction.  Sometimes I walk beside her to ensure her safety as the green light timed-out.  Nevertheless, most motorists are very considerate here.

However, I would like the authorities to:

a.   Promote cheap and functional “elderly marketing cum seating trolley” that can serve dual function as a marketing trolley, walking aid and in particular those that can be seated to allow others to ferry them easily at traffic crossings.

b. Make available at most supermarket and convenient store (it is also where most of the elderly get their marketing trolley as a walking aid).  Many do not know where to get such specialized trolleys.

Should make available at supermarket and hardware stores in housing estates.  At traffic lights the elderly can be seated comfortably to let others push them safely across the traffic lights before the green light time-out

2.    Using such “elderly marketing cum seating trolley” allow others to participate:

a.  As it easily allow anyone to ferry the elderly across the traffic lights or zebra crossings since they can now be seated comfortably in such trolleys.

b.  Promote a caring culture when it is within our reach to help the elderly rather then hinder their movements or just walking by their side.

Take Care

a.  Common Market Trolleys used a (desperate) walking aid by the common folks as it is cheap and easily available and dual usage.  However, mobility still remain painfully slow at traffic junctions but nevertheless it still aid in their balance.
