The news.

Aging happens to  us all.

We are all affected by aging, both our own and that of our loved ones. The advancing age of Quebec society poses major challenges in terms of prevention and care.

  • In 2011, approximately one person in six was aged 65 or over. If the trend continues, this will be the case for one in four people in 2031. Quebec society will then be one of the oldest in the Western world.
  • But don't think that all elderly people are ill! 81% of seniors aged 65 and over consider themselves to be in good health. The majority live at home and are independent. However, their health declines from the age of 85 onwards.
