Abstract: It is obvious that we are entering into an ageing society. Taking Hong Kong as an example, in the year 2030, it is projected that 22% of the total population will have reached 60 years old or above. In Hong Kong, there is still a lack of inclusive and comprehensive planning for society to meet this change in demography. Nowadays, the percentage of educated older people is becoming significant. It is also projected that 20 years on 63.6% of the elderly population will have received secondary education level or above. Obviously, people who are better educated will have different expectations in life as compared with the present cohort of older people. They may keep lifestyles with variety even when they become older.
