Transitions to long-term and residential care among older Canadians

by Rochelle Garner, Peter Tanuseputro, Douglas G. Manuel and Claudia Sanmartin

In 2016, 16.9% of Canadians were aged 65 years or older, and 2.2% were aged 85 years or older, representing a 20.0% increase in these age groups since 2011. The proportion of the Canadian population aged 65 years and older is expected to increase to 20.0% by 2024. These demographic shifts raise concerns about the future need for nursing home (NH) care, because age is a strong predictor of admission to an NH. According to the 2016 Census, 6.8% of Canadians aged 65 years and older were living in an NH or residence for senior citizens (hereafter referred to as a seniors’ residence, SR): this proportion jumps to 30.0% among Canadians aged 85 years and older.
