Yu Xiang's replies:
This picture seemingly depicts a scene of two young people guide a group of elderly people on some hand exercises. Thus, I presume that the location of the image is most probably an elderly care centre. The purpose of the two young people guiding the elderly on some exercises might be to le t the elderly have an active and healthier lifestyle.
In our current times, Singapore is becoming a greying population, as the people from the 30s or 40s are getting old, and due to the current hectic working lifestyles, it is nearly not possible for these elderly people's children to take care of them daily, as they will most rabble have to work to support their elderly parents, thus the need for services such as elderly care centres to help take care of them.
However, sometimes, the lifestyle's of the elderly might not be very active in these care centres, mostly due to the lack of resources to dedicate to all these different requirements, thus, there is a need and a challenge for the care centres to provide these services, resulting in hiring of people to conduct such activities.
