Aging and Long-Term Care
Newfoundland and Labrador’s population is rapidly aging. The demography of the population has radically changed to a low proportion of children, and a high proportion of seniors. This demographic shift is projected to continue over the next 20 years.
Frailty, chronic illness and ageism are significant factors when it comes to caring for an aging population. In addition to appropriate long-term care options, concepts such as aging in place and age-friendly communities are top of mind for seniors and families in our province.
