The state of care for seniors

Updated: Jun 28, 2023

The state of senior living in Canada and the United States is currently facing a number of challenges and opportunities. In both countries, the senior population is growing rapidly, and there is an increasing demand for high-quality living options and services for seniors. At the same time, there are concerns about the availability and affordability of these options and services and about the support and resources provided to seniors and their families.

One of the key challenges facing the senior living industry in Canada and the United States is the lack of availability and affordability of long-term care facilities. In both countries, many seniors and their families are struggling to find suitable and affordable options for long-term care, and there is a growing demand for more facilities and services.

At the same time, there are concerns about the availability and affordability of these services and about the support provided to seniors and their families to manage their care needs.


Additionally, there is extreme pain in the lack of available people to care for our seniors. The pandemic has been hard on all of us and especially that of our healthcare workers.

For example, many facilities are adopting new technologies to improve communication and coordination of care and to provide seniors with greater access to information and resources. Additionally, many facilities are implementing new programs and services to support seniors' social, emotional, and physical well-being and to help them maintain their independence and quality of life.

While there is a growing demand for high-quality living options and services for seniors, there are also concerns about the availability and affordability of these options and services and about the support and resources provided to seniors and their families.
