Aging at home

The Aging at Home Strategy aims to meet the needs of people over 65 and their natural caregivers in order to encourage aging at home. By providing local support, this strategy helps seniors avoid an unnecessary loss of their independence and dignity caused by premature admission to a long-term care hospital or facility.

The Aging at Home Strategy is crucial to improving the lives of Ontario seniors and helping ensure the economic viability of the entire health system (MOHLTC, 2009).
