    Description:

    As our population ages, more and more people are required to provide care or assistance to an elderly parent. In 2007, about one in five caregivers lived more than one hour away from the parent they were assisting. This study provides a profile of caregivers according to whether they lived at varying distances from the parent to whom they were providing care. Information is provided about the socio-economic characteristics of caregivers, the types and frequency of care provided, the use of additional sources of assistance, etc. The primary focus is on the financial, social and work consequences associated with assisting a parent who lives far from a caregiver's place of residence.

    Description:

    Age brings limitations that affect where, how and with whom people live. One of the concerns that seniors may face is affordable housing. This may be a particular concern for those seniors who lose a spouse and are faced with reduced household income while shelter costs remain unchanged. Using data from the 2001 Census of Population and the 2002 General Social Survey (GSS), this article looks at who seniors live with and the affordability of their homes.

    Description:

    We live in an aging society. And much has been written about how care will be provided to an aging population. We can't stop aging, and our capacity to affect our health as we age is limited, but the size, quality and proximity of people's social networks are arguably among the things that determine whether seniors receive formal care delivered by professionals, rely on informal care provided by family and friends or, indeed, receive no care at all.

    In this article, we look at the relationship between the social networks of non-institutionalized seniors and whether they receive formal, informal or no care.

    Description:

    This article identifies the determinants of healthy aging between 1994-1995 and 2002-2003 among middle-aged adults and seniors. A broad range of health and mortality determinants are evaluated: demographic and socio­-economic characteristics (age, sex, living arrangements, education, household income, rural/urban residence), health related behaviours (smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity in leisure time, weight), psycho-social factors (stress, sense of coherence, social support), chronic conditions and frequency of medical consultations.

    Description:

    As the population ages, a greater demand for long-term care services and, in particular, nursing homes is expected. Policy analysts continue to search for alternative, less costly forms of care for the elderly and have attempted to develop programs to delay or prevent nursing-home entry. Health care administrators required information for planning the future demand for nursing-home services. This study assesses the relative importance of predisposing, enabling, and need characteristics in predicting and understanding nursing-home entry.
