Article Summary: 

The article discusses best practices for condos with aging residents. As the senior population grows and lifespans increase, many retirees and seniors choose to age in their condominiums. The condo has responsibilities under the Human Rights Code to provide suitable accommodations to aging residents, including those with physical and cognitive disabilities. However, accommodating cognitive disabilities can be challenging due to the duties placed on owners under the Condominium Act. Condo boards and management should be aware of the challenges and be prepared to provide reasonable accommodations and communicate with designated authorities like Power of Attorney for Property holders.
