In the face
of an ageing population in BC, family caregiving is fast becoming a reality for
more and more people within our communities. With nearly 1 in 4 BC residents
expected to be over 65 in just a decade, the challenges of aging are bound to
confront us all and we need to be prepared. Recent studies have also shown that
more than 90% seniors want to age at home for as long as possible. Home Instead
Senior Care (Burnaby and South Vancouver) is proud of its mission to change the
face of aging and offer high quality personalized home care solutions to
seniors and family caregivers in its community in Burnaby and South Vancouver!!
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
