Who Are We?

DSC_0099 copyMy name is Eva Zatrak, and I am the founder and creator of this site which I would love you to use as your ‘toolbox’ for aging. I would also like to thank Deborah Cauz who helped me with the launching of this site. Unfortunately, Deborah passed away in December 2014 after a year-long battle with cancer.

Deborah was the editor, researcher and the writer of some pieces you’re going read here. She was a boomer and has always believed in the power of storytelling to create community and help us find what we need to improve ourselves as well as each other.

If you asked what made me think of starting Boomertoboomeronline.ca, the answer is simple. You asked for it!

I am a Registered Nurse, and I have been in the nursing profession since 1978. From bedside nursing, I turned to community care nursing and had been a co-founder and co-owner a highly regarded private home care company in Etobicoke since 1995 Thornbrook Home Care. Thornbrook was sold in June of 2016 to a new owner. However, I still own and operate a Home Healthcare company in Oakville called Thistlecreek Health Care Ltd. Thistlecreek has been in business since January 2011. Opened as a sister company to Thornbrook Home Care.

On a daily basis, I meet seniors, clients and their families who come to seek help for themselves or their loved ones. They may be looking for temporary relief as a family caregiver, an extra set of hands to assist with the activities of everyday living or the tender loving care needed when someone chooses to die at home.

As in every corner of life, I also meet many people who need these services but can’t afford them. They don’t know where to turn, who to ask or what to do?

If that’s the case for you, you’re in the right place.  Boomertoboomeronline.ca is a place where you can freely invest your time, not your money. It’s the place to ask questions, offer solutions, find resources and get answers.

We welcome you here!

  1. Great site with important information. Caring for an aging parent is a demanding a draining experience. You can read some of my reflections on this topic in my eBook SAYING GOODBYE TO MOM available on my website. Thanks for all the work you do. Wish you were around back when I was deep in the middle of it all!

  2. We’re boomer sisters known as the Midlife Gals, and we care for our elderly mother whom we refer to as The Ancient One. All three of us are using HUMOR to assuage the fears, the familial guilt, and the sheer discomfort that comes with middle age, caregiving and even that wrinkle we get on our faces from the pillow that can last ALL day! Please come and laugh with us at http://www.themidlifegals.com

    And, thank you for your site, but you all need to LAUGH more!

  4. Great to find your site. I am an RN as well and have just launched my 2 books on Alzheimer’s . . . I cared for my mother for 7 years and the writing came out of that experience. I taped our conversations and my mother’s amazing voice weaves throughout all the work . .
