Hong Kong population is ageing. From the map, we can see that most of the homes for the elderly (institutions for old age people) are located in regions where there are higher number of elderly population. Overall, about 96% of homes for the elderly residents have suffered from one or more chronic diseases. In places where there is a high population of elderly people, the demand for professional elderly care will continue to rise.

香港人口出現老化現象。在地圖上,大部份安老院都位於長者人口比較密集的地區。總體來說,大約96%居住在安老院的長者有一種或多種長期疾病。在長者人口眾多的地方,對專業安老服務的要求將會陸續增加。
