Dementia Statistics in The Philippines

This statistic displays the projected number of people with dementia in the Philippines in 2015, 2030 and 2050. According to the source, approximately 1.15 million people are projected to have dementia by 2050 in the Philippines.

Philippines is Aging Fast

The number of elderly Filipinos or those over 60 years old is projected to increase by 0.23 percent over 2017 and will most likely be over 8 million Filipino senior citizens by the end of the year, POPCOM said.

This will constitute 8.2 percent of the country's total population. Of this figure, 5 million will be aged 65 and older or 4.7 percent of the country's population.

The estimate places the Philippines closer to having an aging population, which is marked by at least 7 percent of the population aged 65 years or older.

What age is senior citizen in the Philippines?

Must be 60 years old or above. May apply to senior citizens with dual citizenship provided that they prove their Filipino citizenship and have at least six months residency in the Philippines.

Senior citizens are granted several benefits and privileges under Republic Act No. 9994 and Republic Act No. 10645. In order to avail of these benefits, the senior citizen or his/her authorized representative shall present a valid and original Senior Citizens’ Identification Card.

As provided in the Philippine Constitution, the state is duty-bound to recognize the rights of senior citizens by providing support though various social systems. Thus, senior citizens are granted benefits and privileges that range from 20% discount and VAT exemption to mandatory membership in the government’s healthcare system, Philhealth.

A Senior Citizens’ Identification Card is issued by the Office of Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) in the city or municipality where the senior citizen resides. Documentary requirements vary per municipality, but the basic qualifications based on RA 9994 are as follows:

  • Must be a Filipino citizen who is a resident of the Philippines
  • Must be 60 years old or above
  • May apply to senior citizens with dual citizenship provided that they prove their Filipino citizenship and have at least six months residency in the Philippines
