People over 65 years old constitute the fastest growing segment of the Canadian population. By 2011, as the first baby boomers turn 65, seven million Canadians will be senior citizens. And by 2041 it is estimated nearly one in four Canadians will be over 65. The aging population will radically change society as individuals face the challenges of growing older, caring for parents and often times for children still at home. As our life spans increase so do our options for how we will spend our later years.
