The population of Canada is aging. It is projected that by the year 2030, the number of seniors within Canada will make up more than 23% of the national population. Seniors are healthier and more active now than at any point in history and continue to live in their family homes. However, their ability to maintain their homes and their independent lifestyle gradually decreases as they age. As their needs grow the support system around these seniors often become less able to provide all the necessary assistance needed. It is difficult for family and friends to be available as often as is needed for the senior to age in place.

The current options available to seniors and their loved ones is relatively limited in Canada. Families often choose to remove a senior from their family home and place them in assisted living as they see no better option to ensure their needs are being met. That said many seniors do not require constant assistance and the vast majority require no medical assistance at all, so this transition to assisted living is often done prematurely.
