I thought that's what retirement savings and CPP are for.Becks wrote: ↑Oct 28th, 2017 3:34 pmWhy is there no government health care coverage for dental care? The same reason why senior care homes, hospices, and daycares are not included. It is just how the health care system is set up. Yes, there are low-income subsidies and a caregiver's tax deduction when u do ur taxes. If u want more, u gotta move to one of those Euro countries that cover u from cradle to grave?

Not really. Not sure what the max is now, but possibly $1400 or more per month. Times two for a couple and throw in OAS and a couple have 4 grand coming in. And with even a small pension and some RRSPs and of course no debt, life can be good.

Isn't the OP asking about long term care homes? They're vastly different than retirement homes.sherman51 wrote: ↑Oct 28th, 2017 11:14 amThere are retirement residences being built, private ones all over the city. You keep saving so that you can afford to live in those for the rest of your life when the time comes. The government would rather pay for nurses to come to you than have a facility that is more costly. Anyone that is relying on these subsidized facilities as a retirement plan will be in deep trouble one day.

Hard to tell but then it's also difficult to understand why OP thinks that old age homes would be closing when baby boomers have just started retiring. Further hard to understand why he thinks it's the government's job to build more. That's for the private sector.

OP sounds like one of those who thinks the government needs to look after people from cradle to grave. Start saving for your own retirement, OP, and then you won't have to solely rely on CPP or worry about a place to live.

Well, that would have made more sense to have provided that context from the outset.amz155 wrote: ↑Oct 28th, 2017 9:03 pmProbably because of this:
