Elderly challenge observation 2

For my second observation, I observed elderly around my neighbourhood have problems walking, including my grandparents.
The elderly will have many problems with their body, such as:
- joint problems
- brittle bones
- weak muscles
These problems will affect them a lot as they will move from one place to another much slower, and that will cause them to waste more time. Then, if they walk down stairs, it will be much easier to fall and be seriously injured
Moving around is a very big problem, so there should be more railings and less steep steps at places where elderly go more often.
