The numbers of “panti jompo” or “panti werdha” or homes for older people in Indonesia are minimal (Redaksi KOPI Pewarta Indonesia, 2019). There are only about 250 panti jompo (capacity 200,000 older people) and 20 panti werdha (capacity 2,000 older people) in the whole nation. The number is unlikely to increase significantly, as the Minister of Social Affairs had emphasised more on family-based caring model for older people instead of through the pantis (Tempo.co, 2016).
