The increase in the elderly population as the Boomer Generation ages (those born between 1946 and 1964) is well documented. Census Canada indicates that the elderly population will increase from 16.9% today to 23% by 2031. More significantly is the increase in those living to 85 and older. This latter point will result in a doubling of those suffering from Dementia (source: Alzheimer’s Society). Community support resources, hospitals, long term care and retirement homes have already begun to feel the impact of this increase today.
