Given current trends from an aging population and the impact of longer life spans, we will see a doubling of the current number of Alzheimer’s and dementia cases in the next 12 years.
The healthcare systems in most if not all Canadian provinces cannot keep up with demand for healthcare services now, particularly for spaces in full care or nursing home residential facilities.
