Hotel-style plan to help elderly

ELDERLY people could enjoy hotel-style housekeeping under a proposal to sell flats at a discount.

One preliminary idea is to offer 24-hour warden and housekeeping services to residents.

Butlers would be available to help residents buy food in the market, tidy up the house or even cook meals.
