TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Canada is experiencing an unprecedented change in its population: by 2030, nearly a quarter

of Canadians will be 65 or older. What's more, older individuals are continuing to play an active role in the labour force, with the number of employed elderly people nearly doubling between 2000 and 2013. This demographic shift is providing new
challenges to the health care system—and to employers.

For many elderly people and the family members who care for them, managing the challenges of aging can be overwhelming. That's why Novus Health provides organizations with the resources their population needs to navigate the complex health care system worldwide.
