This Month’s Feature: Housing

Senior Living’s September edition features seniors living a healthy and active lifestyle. We start with how the practice of yoga shapes and strengthens bodies and improves mental function.  We join the Sunshine Hikers Club where excursions blend the benefit of fitness with the beauty of nature.  We travel to Ecuador, an increasingly popular “snowbird” destination for active Canadians. And we introduce you to some seniors who launched themselves into a second career after retirement in order to stay active and engaged.

While the majority of seniors are, indeed, active and healthy, caregiving is becoming more prevalent as the number of seniors increase and the median age of people over 65 rises. This edition contains our semi-annual “Caregiving Guide” – a handy and helpful resource for family caregivers prepared by the Family Caregiver’s Network Society.  Find out how to manage the caregiving of family members who live far away, how to deal with the challenges of long-term caregiving, and where to turn for support and assistance if you are a caregiver. Finally, discover how simple renovations can allow family members to remain in their homes longer, including some tips from Shell Busey, a reknowned renovation specialist.
