Cheri DiNovo Parents and Pensions

Cheri DiNovo, MPP for Parkdale High Park asked Are we doing everything we can for our pensioners? In this day and age, more people are retiring without a pension and our nursing and medical resources are already strained.

This echoes the sentiments of a previous post with an examination of what questions we need to be posing to our parents in their future care issues. When confronting this directly; the Most common response I receive is thats my Mom, or the larger one; She feels she will be better and wants to stay in her home.

I agree it is a tough issue; but the questions still need to be asked. Here is a starting point for you. http://Bit.Ly/AgingParents

We need to look long past our pensions and consider longer term solutions. Alex Mihailidis, PhD, P.Eng., How engineers are Helping Seniors with Dementia stay at home.
