Connected Industry Insight Series—ICT Opportunities in the Global Aged Care Market

Impact of the Ageing Population on Nations

High Cost of Care: The cost of care will rise, as the proportion of aged population will rise compared to younger population. This will lead to shortage of skilled manpower and high cost of care in aged care homes and villages.

More Burden on Public Care Systems: Long queues in public funded homes or community homes may lead to a compromise in quality, service dissatisfaction, and lack of care.

In the next 􂀀– years seniors may be left with no choice but to relocate to other nations in search of affordable care systems.

Not all seniors are expected to be able to afford medical insurance and private care homes.
