Towards 2020: Localising global best practices for creating socially connected communities for successful ageing-in-place

Sylwin Angdrew

Based on the World Bank population projections, APAC’s ageing population, aged 60 and above, is projected to increase to 500 million by 2020. Life expectancy is also increasing. However, it is not about how long we live, but how healthy, independent and happy we are as we age. Having visited over 350 retirement communities, wellness and rehabilitation facilities globally, we observed that people are starting to plan for successful ageing earlier, and implementing active ageing communities that focus on preventive healthcare. This presentation will focus on four key areas to enable the development of active ageing communities:

  • Age with Laughter
  • Age with Health
  • Age with Purpose
  • Age with Engagement
