Home Instead of Care

Chris and Susan Robertson

Canada's population is aging quickly. In fact, projections show that between 2015 and 2021, the number of children will be surpassed by the number of seniors. In Cape Breton specifically, seniors now represent about 20percent of the total population.
 
As younger generations migrate west and towards larger urban centres, many approaching their senior years are migrating back to the east coast. This presents our region with some challenges, and creates a pressing need to develop the resources to navigate care management for the older generation.
 
Chris Robertson and his wife Susan are among those who left Cape Breton and after 10 years, recognizing the increasing need for elderly care, saw an opportunity in Cape Breton and has returned to his roots to open a Home Instead Senior Care franchise.
