Eldecare: A Community Responsibility - Panel Discussion

We are experiencing an aging society. With this comes a unique challenge but also unique opportunities. Amongst the challenges is how to address the increasing rate of dementia. In 2008, there were 103,700 new cases of dementia in Canada. By 2038, it is estimated that there will be 257,800 new cases. But aging is not just about dealing with dementia. We need to also think about how we can age in a positive way. We can meet these challenges in innovative ways. These challenges will take all of us stepping up… getting involved. This is your opportunity to discuss the challenges and innovations of aging with an expert panel and thoughtful, concerned citizens like you.
