Malaysia’s ageing population – like many countries around the world – is growing significantly. And, in addition to an advancing aged population, older
people are also living longer as evidenced by an increase in life expectancy.
The Government of Malaysia has estimated that by 2030, 15 per cent of the country’s population will be classified as senior citizens (aged 60 and above).
Its objective is to prepare the nation as an ageing population, which includes improving the infrastructure and facilities at old folks homes.
Rumah Sejahtera Seri Setia is home to about 60 elderly citizens aged from 60 to 100 years old.
Partially subsidised by the government, Rumah Sejahtera Seri Setia in Petaling Jaya is home to about 60 elderly citizens aged from 60 to 100 years old. To
improve quality of life and reduce costs associated with providing an essential service such as hot water, management needed a sustainable solution.
In addition to being reliable, the hot water system needed to be competitivelypriced, backed by a manufacturer’s warranty and supported with reliable
after sales service. The undisputed choice? SolarMate.
SolarMate has been supplying hot water across the country for residential and commercial
developments for over 35 years.
