The Canadian population is aging, and in the next 20 years, the senior population is expected to grow by 68%. We will all experience the impact of aging in some way, from those of us who are thinking of retirement to those who will be caring for loved ones. Innovations that support aging in homes and communities of choice will be critical.
This event explores what aging in place means and looks at the partnerships, innovations, and policies that empower citizens to live safe, healthy, and well-supported lives within their own homes as they age.
Join our guest experts as they showcase the innovative technologies currently available and being developed to support aging in place today and into the future.
Disclaimer: Some of the topics raised in this event could have emotional triggers for some participants.
