Maturity Matters Newsletter for August 2011

This months topics include:

Feature Article:       Addressing Incontinence
 
Incontinence, or the loss of bladder or bowel control, affects over 1.5 million Canadians: one in five Canadians over 65, more than half of all seniors in long-term care, and women more than men.
Incontinence, in most cases, can be successfully treated, managed, or even cured. However, embarrassment, frustration, fear and social stigma prevent most people from discussing incontinence.  
Article by Alex Handyside, CPCA, www.scotiacare.com

Ask The Experts:     I am Concerned About my Dad's Driving. What Can I do to Help?

Hi Jerry,

We appreciate your kind feedback, access to information specific for seniors and the elderly is often a 2 part approach, the offering information to seniors that is useful and beneficial, but also offers insight and understanding for the unique aging experiences those that love and care for the aging to be able to assist the aging better

HI Skip,

We would typically not encourage others to us our artcles to promote products or services, but we already added the link to CSA in one of our own comments. For those in Canada interested in high quality education about working with the aging, seniors, their caregivers and family

Please visit CPCACanada.com and if you decide to take the education let them know we encouraged you to do so. The support and assistance CPCA offers both the those that have earned the designation and in turn their clients are some of the best available anywhere.

This is not a Real Estate focused 3 hour class, completing the designation will take condierable time and effort but offers so much that it is well worth it and your clients and those you serve will benefit much from the added insight and resources that you have gained.
