Victor Fong is a Charted Accountant and Chartered Company Secretary by training and profession. He spent 15 years in the corporate sector in New Zealand and Malaysia before joining EY Malaysia. He retired from the partnership in 2010 to pursue his interest in aged care.
Victor’s interest in aged care began some 30 years ago while in New Zealand and subsequently having to look after his ageing parents. With the ageing population and the fast-changing demographic trend in Malaysia and the region, Victor felt that there would a growing demand for professionally run aged care facilities
Having succeeded in persuading an operator from Australia to provide the technical input and best practices from that country they started Eden-on-the-Park Senior Lifestyle Resort in 2012.
Victor’s integrated aged care model promotes the concept of ageing-in-place. Together with a training academy to build capacity, Victor hopes that his model can be replicated widely to make professional aged care a preferred option in our Asian society.
