I am looking for data on the costs to the Canadian health care system for the following conditions in the geriatric population:
-restraints (physical or chemical)
-responsive behaviours associated with dementia OR psychogeriatrics
I have found a few things on the CIHI website that address health care costs but was wondering if there is anything at StatCan that I have missed.
Thanks for the question about the continuing care data at CIHI. Unfortunately, it is not possible given that people can have several of those conditions and in long-term care there’s no most-responsible reason for being in home and continuing care (as there would be in acute care).
