Re-inventing care for our aging population
Did you know that women who turn 50 this year will on average live to be 92? Is Canada ready for the greying Baby Boomer generation? Dr. Janice Keefe of Mount Saint Vincent University says we need to think of innovative policies to better support older persons.
From 2002-12, Dr. Keefe was the Canada Research Chair in Aging and Caregiving Policy. Her research expertise is in caregiving policy and practice, continuing care policy, rural aging and projecting future needs of Baby Boomers.
* Janice Keefe was one of 14 Innovators to Know invited to Ottawa by Universities Canada on Feb. 24, 2016 to meet with high school students, science policy makers and Parliamentarians.
