||Statistics shows that those aged 60 years and above in Malaysia stood at 7.9 % in 2010 and the rate will reach 15.3 % by 2030, classified as one of the fastest nation to achieve aged country status within 20 years. This fast pace of ageing population is as a result of longer life expectancy and rapid decline in total fertility rate.
