The results of Statistics Canada's General Social Survey has been released. The 2012 survey asked 792,000 Canadians aged 15 years or older about their home care needs. The survey did not cover those living in institutions or in long-term care facilities. The 792,000 Canadians can be divided into two groups. The first group, some 461,000 in all, needed care at home to deal with a long-term illness, aging or disability condition but did not receive any care. The second group, about 331,000, received care at home for a long-term illness, aging or disability condition but reported not receiving all the care they needed. These numbers compare with 1.8 million Canadians who were care recipients in 2012 and received all the care they needed.
