Document Highlights

To provide for the future care needs of today’s and tomorrow’s seniors, Canada must invest its increasingly scarce health dollars in the right type and mix of services. This Conference Board of Canada primer provides an overview of the landscape of care and services outside of hospitals that support aging Canadians, along with a discussion of why it is important to look toward the future of care for Canadian seniors. Future Care for Canadian Seniors provides information on the numbers and life expectancy of the over-55 population between 2013 and 2030, as well as their health conditions and medical requirements, living arrangements, and out-of-institution support systems, including hospice or home-based palliative care. This briefing is part of the Conference Board’s Future Care for Canadian Seniors research series.
