Abstract

Malaysia is in the fifth place for world’s top ten retirement havens. In light to the combination of medical and the growth of old aged community in Malaysia, a few developers are experimenting with the concept of retirement village. The current study aimed to explore and gain a better understanding of the factors that will influence the intention of the middle aged adults in Johor to move into a retirement village. Based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour, the study found that Attitude and Subjective Norm has a positive and significant impact on the intention. Perceived Behavioural Control may be statistically significant but has not accurately predict the intention because of the absence of past behaviour or knowledge. The results indicated that those with tertiary education and who earns more that RM10,000 have intention to move in to the retirement village. The study itself have plausible explanation of the results and paved more opportunities for future research.
