Canada is facing an unprecedented shift in its demographics as older adults are expected to represent 25% of our population by 2050. "If given the choice, an overwhelming majority of older adults (over 85%) would prefer to age in place within their own homes and communities." explains Dr. Amaya Arcelus, who is leading the development of a new 7‑year program, the Aging in Place Challenge program, at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) focussed on increasing the quality of life of older adults and their personal caregivers.
