ELDER FACTS

GERONTOLOGY

The growing interest in understanding the process of aging has given rise to the many fields of gerontology, the study of the biological, psychological, and social aspects of aging.  Gerontologists include researchers and practitioners in such diverse fields as biology, medicine, nursing, dentistry, psychology, sociology, economics, political science, and social work.  These individuals are concerned with many aspects of aging, from studying and describing the processes involved, to seeking ways of improving the quality of life for older people.   

Situation Critical

  • At the turn of the century in Canada, the life expectancy was only 56 years of age. 

  • In 1952 when the Old Age Security was introduced, the payout began at Age 70 and paid $40.00 per month…Life expectancy in 1952 was only 67 years of age. 

  • In 2013, life expectancy was 84.31 years for women and 78.98 years for men. 

  • In 2013, there were 6,900 Canadian centenarians (and 80% of them were women).   By 2031, there will be 17,000 centenarians and by 2061, close to 80,000. By that time, most cohorts of baby boomers will have reached 100.

  • There were 10 million elders in Canada in 2013, representing roughly 29% of the total population.  According to Statistics Canada's population projections, in a little more than 15 years (2031) over a third of Canada's population will be 55 years of age or older.

  • Latest Statistics Canada information show seniors made up 16.1 per cent of Canada's population as of July 1, 2015, compared to 16.0 per cent for children between the ages of 0 and 14.

  • The 2015 population growth rate for Canadians over the age of 65 was 3.5 per cent, nearly quadrupling the national average of 0.9 per cent.

ELDERS EXPECT MORE

The EPC Designation program will improve your options and give you more control over your business.

Before taking the EPC Designation course, many of our targeted professions treated the 50+ population in the same way as they did their younger clients and prospects.

What does the 50+ population expect from you?

Elders appreciate professionals who:

  • Know the issues and alternatives that are important and unique to senior life.

  • Respect their circumstances and confidentiality.

  • Provide guidance and assistance with the elder’s best interests in mind.

  • Accommodate their physical and health challenges such as illnesses, vision or hearing impairment, when speaking with them.

The Elder Planning Counselor designation program is designed with you in mind.  Our goal is to give you the education and tools that you need to work confidently and profitably within the 50+ age group.
