Impact of COVID-19 on the business of Ageing – Spotlight on Japan

Ageing Asia Webinar: Business of Ageing is a new weekly 60 minute webinar series launched by Ageing Asia that focuses on how the global eldercare sector is Re-thinking, Re-inventing and Digitising products, services, business and operational models to address the needs of Asia Pacific’s rapidly ageing population.

The number of people over the age of 80 will triple to 425 million globally in 2050. The business of Ageing in Asia Pacific is projected at US$3.3 Trillion by 2020. The changing needs and expectations of baby boomers will drive changes in the way we deliver social, health, care, lifestyle and technologies.

Hosted by Janice Chia, Founder, Ageing Asia, we will take you to Japan to find out what’s happening on the ground at Maihama Club (Assisted Living facility in Tokyo) and interview CEO, Gustav Strandell, on what is top on his mind for his operations and where he sees the future. You will also get to hear about the future of senior living business trends in a Post-Covid 19 world by Takeshi Haeno, Associate Director, Monitor Deloitte Strategy, Healthcare Strategy, Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting LLC. There will be opportunities for Q&A with our distinguished speakers at the end of the session.
