Solving the Caregiver Crisis
In Canada, more than 8 million caregivers already provide help to an elderly parent or person with disabilities. That number will skyrocket over the next two decades and have a profound impact on families across the country as the number of older adults doubles. Given this major demographic shift, more needs to be done to provide support to family caregivers who already face stress and health-related issues due to their roles.  On December 7, 2018, leading experts addressed the looming caregiver crisis and discussed how caregiver supports and assistive technology can allow seniors to live more independently at home.
