Population aging and immediate family composition: Implications for future home care services
Authors: Y. Carrière, Janice Keefe, X. Lin, J. Légaré, and G. Rowe
In Canada, there has been significant discussion over the aging of the population and other socio-demographic trends which affect the availability of informal support. Noting the lower fertility rates of baby boomers, the increased participation of women in the labour force and the changing family structure in terms of increased divorce and reconstituted families, assumptions of continued high level assistance from informal support networks are often criticised. The main objective of this research is to project the availability of informal support to meet the need for assistance in performing everyday activities among the disabled elderly population for the period 2001-2031. Future trends are analyzed in terms of demand for support, (e.g., disability among the elderly population), and supply of support, (e.g., the extent and composition of the informal network, mainly the family network).
