I keep saying that all Canadians should have the right to stay in their own homes for as long as possible and receive the services they need to do so. If seniors want to age in their own village, infrastructures must be created to support them instead of taking them away from the community where they have lived for 75 or 80 years and moving them to the city. That completely uproots those people. Infrastructures have to be created in each village so people can age at home. That is the option that must be given priority.
