Analysis of Current Situation
Singapore is ageing at a rapid pace
Singapore has one of the fastest aging population in Asia-Pacific Region and the number of people age 65 and above will be doubled by year 2030.
Please refer to Figure 1 & 2 for the recorded statistics.
Figure 1 – Singapore is Ageing
“According to statistics, Singapore is one of the fastest ageing societies in the world. By 2030, one in four people, or more than 900,000 people, will be aged 65 and above, double the number now.”
Figure 2 – Ageing is taking place at a rapid pace
“There is an exponential increase in the number of 65 years old Singaporeans in 2020 and the number of 80 years and above Singaporeans in 2030”.
Old Age Support Ratio Is Falling
Many elderly have been living alone with no friends or family, slowly they fall prey to loneliness and dementia.
Most of them, especially those living alone are left unattended for a prolonged period of time. In cases of medical emergencies, they are often left undetected which result in delay in treatment and some undiscovered death at their residence.
It has been said that dying with dignity is one of the foremost concerns in the minds of these elderly folks.
Health Conditions Related to Aging
1. Risk of Fall
Elderly has an increase risk of fall due to their physical health conditions which affect their strength and balance.
2. Deterioration of Hearing
Elderly has an increase rate of hearing loss due to their physical changes in the ear. As you age, the outer ear canal thins while earwax gets drier and sticker which increases the risk of impacted ear wax.
3. Impairment of Sight
Elderly has an increase rate of visual impairment as the normal function of the eye tissues decreases. Demographic studies have shown that age is the best predictor of blindness and visual impairment.
Elderly may become forgetful as they age and there is any increasing rate of developing dementia in them.
5. Social mobility
Elderly accompanied with ageing problems has an increase risk of decline in mobility, potentially resulting them in a situation where they become confined at home.
6. Heart Attack
Elderly has the risk of developing heart attack due to their social mobility and the key of reducing the risk is to prevent it.
With the increasing ageing population, there is a need to increase in Healthcare providers and services to cater to the needs.
