walk the talk

Supporting the growth of a generation of healthy and socially connected elderly through walking. --- One of the major barriers to the social connectedness of elderly in Singapore is their Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) limitations. These activities are related to independent living, and include shopping, taking public transportation, managing finances and procuring medication. Upon further investigation, we realize that what primarily hinders elderly from going about these tasks are mobility issues. --- As such, we hope to engender a spirit of both discovery and adventure to promote the very simple but effective and accessible form of exercise, walking, among those aged 55-65. Our solution will be a preventive measure aimed at ensuring that the elderly in Singapore will be well equipped to take charge of their IADLs, and by extension, that they will also become more socially connected.
