Why Singapore? Singapore is a so-called aged society with a proportion of citizens aged 65 years and above of 15% per cent in 2018. By 2030, it is projected to reach 19%.
The Singapore Government has a proactive attitude to tackle this challenge and improve aged care services and facilities, particularly in building infrastructures, addressing labor needs, easing the financial burden of long term care, and enhancing quality of aged care, is also being dealt with.
In 2015, the Smart Nation has announced a $3 billion national plan to lead the way towards Successful ageing. New technologies, research and community are at the heart of their dynamic strategy.

Aging Innovation Exhibition
With the change in demographics of our older adults who yearn to age healthily, independently and in a dignified manner, the Ageing Innovation Exhibition provides a platform for the active agers to gain insights on the latest innovative products and services that can be translated to their needs.
Agency for Integrated Care (AIC)
AIC aims to create a vibrant care community for people to live well and age gracefully. AIC coordinates and supports efforts in integrating care to achieve the best care outcomes for their clients.
They reach out to caregivers and seniors with information on staying active and ageing well, and connect people to services they need. They support partners in strengthening the capability to deliver quality care, and bring partners to work together to meet the needs of the ageing population. They bring care services and information closer to those in need.
Established in 1993 as a non-profit family foundation, the Tsao Foundation’s efforts have first focused on promoting successful ageing, and active ageing as framed by the World Health Organization. Towards that end, in the last two decades, Tsao Foundation has pioneered approaches to ageing and eldercare across a range of disciplines to empower mature adults to master their own ageing journey over their life course in terms of self-care, growth and development.
The Foundation’s work is taken forward through three interlinked initiatives:
- The Hua Mei Centre for Successful Ageing, which pioneers medical, social and psycho-social care services to mature adults living in the community, using a person-centered, team-man-aged approach;
- The Hua Mei Training Academy, the country’s only dedicated provider of training in community-based eldercare, offering professional and entry-level certificate courses, as well as informal training and public education; and
- The International Longevity Centre Singapore, which implements ground-breaking community development programs, policy relevant research, and stakeholder collaborations to join the dots between community, academia, enterprise and public policy for more innovative and effective approaches to population ageing.
