BY next year, the number of Malaysians aged 60 and above is projected to reach 3.5 million. The figure will increase to 6.3 million in 2040.

An article on myforesight.my mentions the loss of independence as a potential part of the ageing process, as are diminished physical ability and age discrimination. Generally, the ageing process includes biological, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual changes.

However, while there will be challenges for the elderly, ensuring that they still have a good quality of life is important. One of the solutions is ageing-in-place — this allows the elderly to remain in the residence of their choice while receiving the care and support they need. For many, it is the best option as they would continue to be independent and remain active.
