Holiday work-Part 2 (Elderly Challenge Observation 4)

Homes designed specially for the elderly:

As you can see from the picture on your bottom left, there is an emergency helpline that connects to the outside of the lift lobby of a particular level. In case the elderly is troubled such as a fire in the apartment, she/he can pull the line and activate the signal so everybody living on the same level will be alerted and rescue will come on their way efficiently.
The toilet shown on the top left has two handlebars connected to the wall. If the person is physically disabled, he/she might have to push themselves up and stand properly. The floor is rough and it prevents elderly to fall and cause injuries. However, for those who are in the wheelchair, the wheelchair cannot go into the toilet as the passageway leading to the toilet is narrow.
