"Aging-In-Place Report 2017"

By admin - Published on Wednesday, 29 November 2017 16:11

"This spring, Canada hit a new record. Statistics Canada released its 2016 census figures and for the first time in our country’s history, seniors (Canadians over the age of 65) outnumber children (those under 14 years of age). 1

The growth is substantial with the number of seniors increasing a staggering 20 per cent since 2011. This increase was even larger when looking at the oldest Canadians where numbers showed growth of 19.4 per cent for those over 85 and up 41.3 per cent among those over 100.

These increases demonstrate the urgent need for resources for this group – both as it relates to housing, healthcare and more. We know that aging Canadians want to stay in their homes as long as possible and together we want to help drive awareness and share information on the steps to take to not just age, but thrive, in place."

"The Far Future—Coming Soon"

"Imagine taking a time machine back to 1750—a time when the world was in a permanent power outage, long-distance communication meant either yelling loudly or firing a cannon in the air, and all transportation ran on hay. When you get there, you retrieve a dude, bring him to 2015, and then walk him around and watch him react to everything. It’s impossible for us to understand what it would be like for him to see shiny capsules racing by on a highway, talk to people who had been on the other side of the ocean earlier in the day, watch sports that were being played 1,000 miles away, hear a musical performance that happened 50 years ago, and play with my magical wizard rectangle that he could use to capture a real-life image or record a living moment, generate a map with a paranormal moving blue dot that shows him where he is, look at someone’s face and chat with them even though they’re on the other side of the country, and worlds of other inconceivable sorcery.
