A tiny segment of time to say my hello and goodbye. And now it’s done.
Gipp Forster: Posthumously
Initially, I had some trepidation about this trip or at least a nagging unease. Could I keep up with a group of young women 13-26 years of age, and their frenzied schedule?

What Senior Living Advertisers Say:
"Advertising in Senior Living has allowed us to speak to a large number of potential customers including our immediate community and within our region. As a full service jewellery store, we repair jewellery, watches and clocks on-site. People over the age of 55 appreciate the one-stop-shopping we offer. Senior Living advertising helps us get the word out." - Geoffrey Beattie, Barclay’s Fine Custom Jewellers
"My husband Bob and I were sitting in Ricky’s restaurant in Cloverdale one morning and I noticed the Senior Living Magazine at the entrance. I am always looking for various avenues to get our tours out to the senior market. I was very impressed with the blend of informative articles, advertising, layout and also the distribution of the magazine. I contacted RaeLeigh, in the sales department and she suggested to go three issues. Being the ultimate skeptic I said no, just one issue. I did get some inquiries on our first ad so I agreed to the two more issues. RaeLeigh was correct when she said that it takes three issues to see results. I know now exactly when the issue is out. Our phone starts ringing. You will definitely see Pitmar Tours in future issues." - Bob and Teresa Marshall, Pitmar Tours, Vancouver BC
"Saanich Parks & Recreation advertises regularly in Senior Living Magazine. We find they distribute to a large target audience that we are trying to reach. I regularly get calls from instructors after an advertisement has gone out to let me know that attendance increased as a direct result of the ad. A very recent example being our gentle walk and talk program that saw a substantial response after the advertisement was run." - Julie Wallace, Recreation Programmer, Saanich Parks & Recreation Community Services
What Senior Living Readers Say:
"I am in the early stages of planning for my Grandmother's move to BC. Where do I get a copy of this years Housing Guide? What a fantastic resource!" - Kristi Mowers
"I really appreciate your most helpful and informative newsletter. There hasn’t been a single issue gone by that I haven’t found something interesting and useful. I particularly appreciate the info about housing. It sure helps as I am a 24/7 caregiver to my elderly husband. He is vision impaired and has PD 35 for years and now with PD dementia. Eventually he will need to go straight into complex care as I am too young to go into assisted living with him. Right now life is pretty tough but we still love each other. Keep up the great mag!" - Linda Matson
