• Missws Choi
The Hong Kong population is ageing.
The proportion of the population aged 65 and over has increased.
At the mid of 2008, the population of elderly persons aged above 65 is 12.6% (0.88 million) of the total population in HK.
It is estimated that in 2016 and 2033, the percentage will increase to 14% and 27% respectively.

• Although most of the elderly persons are still living with their families (around 74.1% of the elderly population), more and more of them are either living alone (11.6%) or living with their spouse only (21.2%).
