The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging released their first report on health and aging in Canada. The report presents key findings on a range of aging issues based on information provided by more than 50,000 participants.
The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) Report on Health and Aging in Canada tells us that:
•95% of CLSA participants rate their own mental health as excellent, very good or good.
•Women are more likely than men to express feelings of loneliness and social isolation, and that there is a link between feelings of loneliness and depression among older Canadians.
•44% of CLSA participants report that they provide some level of care to others,
and caregiving is most frequent (49%) among individuals aged 55 to 64.
