Why Was The CNHPS Formed?

As in many parts of the world, the percentage of the population that are seniors has increased dramatically in B.C. Most seniors would like to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. At the same time, their support networks are shrinking, and many seniors find themselves with few family members living nearby. Much research has been done that points to increasing loneliness and/or social isolation among our senior population which can lead to other chronic conditions or increase the severity of these chronic conditions.
