You will learn practical ideas that you can use to strengthen your resilience.

westward ho

Returning to Penticton in September.

The summer was over and it was time to hit the road again.

Come with Jerry and Linda. Our 4671 km (6 days, 12 hours) drive, condensed to a 45 minute illustrated talk. Starting in NE Vermont, around Montreal, into the Laurentians and the gold mining regions of western Quebec, through the “near-north” of Ontario, to Nipigon, Thunder Bay, Kenora, and on to Winnipeg. Across the prairies, past Regina, Medicine Hat, Pincher Creek; Crowsnest Pass into BC, then the five passes to Osooyos and home to Penticton.

Farms, lakes, hills, mountains, valleys, rivers, mines, livestock, oil wells, wind farms, smoke. This is one big, beautiful country!

 

Learning at Lunch: Caring for Senior Parents

Friday, April 26
12:00 pm to 01:00 pm

Seniors walking

The number of seniors needing care is expected to double over the next 15 years.  More than 1 million caregivers in Canada are themselves over the age of 65.  
There is rarely any training for family members about how to help their senior parents through issues with their health, personal or financial care. Caregivers often stumble their way through the learning process, and they can often find themselves in difficulty because they unintentionally made a serious mistake.
 
This talk will explain three key legal things that every caregiver needs to know when helping their senior parents:
what the role of caregiver means legally
the importance of keeping assets separate and safeguarded
reporting requirements - things you need to keep track of
