Rapid aging will be a crucial megatrend affecting Malaysia in the coming decades.
According to World Bank, going from an aging to aged society in just 24 years, the country’s transition happens at a similar pace to Japan’s and follows the trend of other high-income economies.
In 2020, more than 7 percent of the population will be age 65 and above, meeting the conventional international definition of an “aging society”
By 2044, 14 percent of the population is expected to be above 65 years of age making Malaysia an “aged society”
Come 2056, Malaysia will be a “super-aged society”, with over 20 percent of its population above the age of 65.
As this population ages, the demand for products and services that improve their quality of life will follow. We at iElder.Asia in the healthcare industry would do well to prepare ourselves to receive this demographic with the proper goods and services to meet their needs.
Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin Geriatrician from UMMC will be speaking at the upcoming Older Adults Assessment Training Preview, a sneak peek into a series of programs designed for medical practitioners to provide some of the most sought after services from the silver demographic.
