Medical Expenses are Increasing
Between 2009 and 2019, the cost of public healthcare insurance rose by 20.9%. And public healthcare covers only about 70% of total medical expenses. Those without private insurance spend over $5,000 per year for things like prescription drugs, mobility aids, dental care, physiotherapy, hearing aids and glasses. An accident, illness or long-term disability may lead to expenses you haven’t budgeted for.
The Importance of Ageing in Place
93% of Canadians aged 65+ want to stay in their current home during retirement. It’s not surprising that many Canadians, like you, don’t want to leave the home they’ve worked hard for and built so many memories in.
