Eldercare in Canada: Context, Content and Consequences

Eldercare in Canada describes the characteristics of seniors receiving informal health care and the different types and amounts of care provided. The report also examines the hidden costs incurred by the people who provide care. During the 1990s, eldercare moved toward centre stage on the national policy agenda. The pressure of an aging population, along with a perceived lack of resources for health, income security, and social services, has led to a call for new ways to provide care to Canada’s seniors. This collaborative effort by researchers at the University of Alberta and Statistics Canada provides the first detailed analysis of results of the 1996 General Social Survey.
