The preferential treatment includes, but is not limited to: free access to public parks, public tourist attractions, public sports and cultural facilities, public toilets and public transportation; priority services in hospitals; preferential legal aid services from lawyers. All parties in society are encouraged to provide enhanced special treatment to the elderly, and these benefits shall take effect immediately.
