Abstract

This exploratory study analyzes user-generated web content in Singapore and Malaysia to examine how the management of Singapore’s rapidly aging population within the emerging cross-border metropolitan space of Singapore and the Southern Malaysian state of Johor is perceived and framed by different social actors. It reveals a range of perspectives on the growing numbers of Singapore seniors and their families beginning to consider Johor as a post-retirement alternative to an over-priced and overcrowded Singapore to satisfy their needs and desires for more affordable medical and residential care, larger homes and greater independence.
