Executive Summary—An Ageing World

Towards a Silver Tsunami by 2020

Impact of the Ageing Population on Nations

- 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.
