Ask Federal Candidates why Long Term Care (LTC) is not under the Canada Health Act and why federal standards have not been set. If we don’t keep LTC front and centre, our most vulnerable seniors will continue to suffer. Act today! Your voice will make a difference.
Action is needed if we want compassionate care for our seniors. Two first steps needed are: 1. that our provincial government establish one department that handles all aspects of senior care. 2 that there is one place where people can find information regarding senior care. Write letters, ask for timelines demand answers. Act today.
Pickles, pizza, quilts, sewing and writing memoirs – what is keeping you busy these days?
If you think conditions have improved in long term care facilities think again. It isn’t the hard working staff to blame.
What are your plans for the New Year? How can you stay happy and healthy?
Keep moving. Challenge yourself to exercise your brain in new ways. Rent a metal detector, try a new musical instrument or exercise program. Keep going, trying new things so we can embrace the next months.
What are your comfort foods? Are you spending more time in the kitchen and around the table these days?
Senior care needs action now! Instead of the Federal and Provincial governments saying they understand concerns, they need to implement the processes and standards that have been identified to stop the needless annihilation of our seniors.
Make a list and check it twice as you plan for the autumn and fall. As a baby boomer what are you going to do to stay healthy and happy?
