We are living longer than ever before. By 2025, there will be 8 million seniors in Canada. Most are healthy and independent.
As time goes on, seniors’ circles of acquaintances, friends and family shrinks. Those ones they shared their lives with are no longer there, having either moved or passed on. With today’s high cost of living, seniors’ children must work harder and harder, leaving them less time to spend with their ageing parents.
The collapse of seniors’ social networks is often accompanied by increasing challenges in mobility and daily function. Getting out to church or mosque, community activities, even shopping becomes harder; then, next to impossible. The result of these actions – more and more seniors are becoming isolated.
