Event Calendar image 1 (3)

The population of industrialized countries is aging, leading to a prioritization of economic, sociological, and political issues related to support and long-term care programs for seniors. Quebec and Canada are not excluded from this demographic trend and several public reports demonstrate the need to examine the coverage, generosity, and costs of these programs to better plan for the years to come.

This event is organized by Marie-Louise Leroux (UQAM, CIRANO) and Patrik Marier (Concordia University), in collaboration with CREEICREGÉSFRQSC, the RSIESG UQAMConcordia University and CIRANO.

It will bring together numerous world-renowned researchers in political science, economics, and sociology, aiming to take stock of the major questions linked to the issues around loss of autonomy, stimulate discussion on these societal issues, and provide possible answers.

Some of the questions that will be addressed are:

  • What solutions should public authorities put in place to provide adequate support and care for seniors and their caregivers?
  • Will seniors have the financial resources to meet increased needs, such as adapting their housing, using nursing services and help with daily living tasks?
  • What are the preferences of seniors regarding the mode of care in the event of loss of autonomy; do they prefer to stay at home or go to a residential and long-term care centre (chslds)? What are the issues linked to different modes of care?
  • What are the financial and psychological consequences for the relatives (caregivers) of seniors losing their autonomy?
