The development of Augmented Reality is becoming robust and matured by the combination of real-time performance with virtual information. With the proliferating geriatric population, the benefits of AR systems can be suitably harnessed for supporting the elderly in home activities, mobility and entertainment, among others. Hence, the development of AR to assist aging population is now feasible, but an overview of the existing research is not yet attempted. The objective of this systematic literature review is to provide the detail technical progress on the current situation of AR application and reviews the different domains using AR for supporting the ageing population. Search was conducted on five databases including Scopus, IEEE Xplore, Science Direct, ACM Digital Library and Springer Link.350 papers were initially searched and after detail study 71 were selected for the review. To conclude, the review proposed six components to be noted when developing new AR applications for the elderly.
