  1. Just wanted to let you know that you have some really helpful articles on your blog. I deal with seniors and those with disabilities everyday and provide quality medical alert systems to those in need. Keep up the good work.

  2. My father is basically in good health for someone in his mid-80s. He still lives on his own and seems to manage. But I think he is having some slight problems with his balance. He’s a little less steady on his feet recently. This really scares me as I am so afraid he is going to have a fall. My father sees himself is very self-sufficient. I’ve mentioned a cane to him and he thought that was a crazy idea, that I was over-reacting. I can’t imagine what would happen if I mentioned a walker! Have you any ideas on how I can deal with this?

    • Thank you for contacting boomertoboomeronline.ca.

      There is an excellent Canadian resource which can provide just the type of information you are looking for.
      This information has been compiled by the BC Institute of Technology. The home page link is https://www.bcit.ca/appliedresearch/mobility/seniors.shtml
      Here you will find comprehensive information for both seniors and families that can be easily downloaded and printed. This information includes tips to help determine if your parent has mobility issues, ideas for initiating these ‘tough conversations’ with a resistant parent, and encouraging them to consider using a mobility device, as well as practical information on canes, walkers, and scooters. There is also information on other assistive devices, such as grips, that can help prevent falls in the home.
      We hope this information will bring about the results you are looking for!


  3. Thanks for compiling this great list of resources for seniors. It can be hard to find accurate and comprehensive information on seniors issues.

  4. I enjoyed your website.

    I developed memory jogging puzzles, 6 piece, 12 piece and 20 piece puzzles and memory games for Alzheimer and dementia patients. Themes from The Saturday Evening Post collection and they love Norman Rockwell.

    Thank you!

  5. Most of the time we come to a crossroads and we just do not know which way to go. It is wonderful to have a place where you can go and find all the answers. It makes your life and the one you are looking answers for, so much easier in the end. Thanks again for being so helpful.
