Residents and staff of the Lakeview Manor in Beaverton ON were happy to receive a generous donation of exercise equipment from their local Royal Canadian Legion branch. Using proceeds garnered from their annual poppy drive fundraiser, the Beaverton Legion proved just how important of a role community partnerships can play in the welfare and development of local communities, particularly in high needs sectors such as elder care.
A number of health issues arise and progress for the elderly as they age: illness, decreasing mobility, depression, dementia. Though many programs and facilities work hard to address and develop innovative methods to engage seniors in maintaining healthy and active lifestyles, what if there is one effective method available that is literally under one’s nose? Fido.
Days filled with golf, hobbies, and taking it easy would seem something to aspire to during one’s career span. However, for some seniors retirement is just not an attractive lifestyle option – at least not yet.
When Charlottetown PEI couple Bob and Donna DesRoches received their 2012 tax notice, they never imagined that they would be facing a raise more than what their pensioned income could afford. With the cost of owning a home ever on the rise, elderly homeowners especially are having to tighten their already-tight financial belts.
Countless senior Canadians across the country live under-stimulated, isolated lives in their homes. As a result, their families watch in hopelessness and despair as their elder loved ones deteriorate. Yet, hope is on the horizon. In Alberta, services such as Ray of Sunshine bring recreational therapy into seniors’ homes and empower them to lead active, engaged lifestyles.
For many age groups ill-managed stress is a leading factor in the development of failing health and chronic disease. While the young tend to be more resilient in coping with it, the senior population face a more challenging struggle.
