We are always looking for terrific staff. People who genuinely enjoy working with seniors. Who have the skills and training to provide the kind of care our clients need. We recently invited PSW caregivers who were interested in working with Eldercare Home Health to send us their resumes. We received 96 resumes. All the resumes were […]

Board games, trivia and word games for seniors bring families together

Suspend, a fun game for the whole family

December 26, 2014 by Cubby

I never admit to being a fan of board games. Until I play one. I’m always the last guy in. I’m also the person in the gathering who has the most fun with the game. I fool around with the rules. I stay within them, but I make my answers silly when I can. I […]

Great day trips for seniors, near Toronto

Crawford Lake longhouse

October 22, 2014 by Cubby

The Iroquois longhouses are at Crawford Lake Conservation Area, southwest of Milton. When we were younger and more agile, my wife and kids and I would explore the park’s limestone caves. Later, we took young grandchildren to learn about Iroquois life in the area long before Europeans arrived. Now, we’d cherish a stroll along the […]

My wife and I discovered how wonderful it is to make video calls when one of our granddaughters moved to Helsinki for her last year of university. I downloaded Skype from the Internet for free and, because my computer didn’t have a built-in camera, I bought an inexpensive one that clipped onto the top of the […]

In a nutshell, we should have done it ten years ago! It’s taught me a few things about being open to possibilities. Surprise: People talk to you! Seniors moving to a condo apartment will find that it’s much less anonymous than a free-standing house or townhouse. We didn’t know this. Neither of us had ever lived […]
