Prepare your pocketbooks

In this week’s episode we take a look at a topic most of us find difficult to face – care for the elderly. What can we expect when we and our parents retire? How long will the EPF money last? How will we cope with illnesses? Can we care for our elderly?

Our correspondent Carla Sapsford Newman speaks to Cindy, a mother and businesswoman coming to grips with the care of her sick elderly mother, Ravindren Kanagasaba who runs a low cost elderly care center, Dr Loke of the Institute of Gerontology at UPM, Azlan Hussein of NASCOM and The University of Third age, Jack Tan of Jeta Care Sdn Bhd and  Carol Yip a financial planner at Abacus for Money.
