If you look at the data carefully, it can be rather frightening. Biggest questions 1. Accommodations--ie where will they live 2. Health Care--is the Government prepared? 3. Funding--Will Will the programmes be available when it is time? 4. Did you know most people ages 55-70 70 have a mortgage, many of them have not been able to save with the company closures, stock markets, and buy outs the employment opportunity for professionals does not exist. 5. Will the style of "retirement" change to reflect the needs. a. more co-operative homes? b. more family homes with ability to house elders? c. ability to sell shares in homes (like lif life-lease) lease) as a nursing home . The buyers/residents would share the living space however a caregiver would look after 44-5 5 while living in the home. this could be made into a complex and made affordable given the upcoming needs of the population. I believ believe Barrie may be doing this. The questions go on and on, with out the information we can not make informed decisions for the betterment of our communities in Ontario.
