This Month’s Feature: Family Caregiving

Senior Living’s March issue takes you to the extreme, senior-style. Meet some folks who don’t know how to put the brakes on life... from paragliding to scuba diving, mountain biking and more... these adrenaline junkies are living life to the fullest and enjoying every minute. Meet a few other people whose “retirement” has been anything BUT.  Kathleen Arnason talks about how she juggles a myriad of projects after a life-changing jaunt through Europe, walking The El Camino 800 km trail. And meet Phil Moriarty, a Vancouver songwriter and singer who started his musical career after he gave up his day job. Journey to Salt Spring Island, a mecca of pastoral settings and food to tempt any palate. Finally, have a look at the offerings of the upcoming Senior Expo in Victoria on March 10th, an annual one day event that brings visitors from far and wide. This year’s event promises something for everyone – from all day entertainment, over a hundred exhibitors, and the first annual Fashion Show featuring fashions by Canadian designer Simon Chang. Or do it up in style with high tea at the Expo’s  Victorian Tea Garden... advance tickets on sale.
