Seniors play an important role in the life of our community. They are the caregivers and supporters of our families, volunteers and community leaders, advisors and counselors, caretakers of our local and family histories, and active contributors to the life of this city. As our population ages, the City is responding to the needs of seniors by increasing the range of housing and long-term care options open to them as well as improving public transportation, enhancing the selection of public health services and recreation programs, and encouraging their participation in civic affairs.
There are many well-seniors communities in Ottawa where facilities are tailored to the social and physical needs of seniors, as well as a number of care facilities ranging from light care to long-term care.
