Grateful that my dad is well taken care of at 97!
I am so happy that my old dad is able to live in his own home in Vancouver, and he has good care and good caregivers. Since I live on Maui, it's not so easy to just pop in and help out. He used to spend a lot of time with us here on Maui, but now traveling isn't so easy.
The health system in Canada has been great lately when he needed to be hospitalized for a whole month due to problems that are typical for an old man at this stage of his life. I was up there the whole time and got a good look at the level of care and treatment, and can say I have no complaints. He was in good hands the whole time, even during surgery. The best part was... no crippling bill!
Shout out to Mt. St. Joseph Hospital which is part of St. Paul's Hospital - thank you for taking great care of my dad!
Here he is post-surgery working on a sudoku puzzle
Since he's back in his own home, we've found some wonderful people to look after him and the house. Vancouver is such a great city that many people come from around the world to live and work there, and especially in the health care field. With some neighborhood connections, it didn't take long to find a good team of 2 women with professional nursing skills who can keep an eye on him and tend to his needs... including taking him to the barber for a haircut and shave!
Doesn't he look much better now!
Thank you ladies - you're doing a fantastic job.
