The Canadian government estimates that the number of people over the age of 65 could double by 2040. Baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) are becoming seniors, and average life expectancy is increasing. While the average Canadian senior enjoys a life with better health and financial security as well as more activity than in previous generations, seniors are still at risk for chronic conditions, disabilities, or mental health issues. As families become smaller and separated by geography, the size and ease of accessibility for seniors’ support networks decrease.
