Attending the Caregiver Show in York Region

The Caregiver Show is an annual one-day Resource Fair for current and future Family Caregivers.

Mark your calendar and join me and many other resources on Sunday, September 08, 2019, (from 10 am to 5 pm) at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel & Suites located at 600 Hwy 7, Richmond Hill, Ontario.

I will be sharing my own experiences, suggestions and tips on how to make minor adjustments in the home of your own choosing. Whether it is in your current home, a downsized home, with a family member or a retirement residence, it is important to take measures earlier than later to make your home as comfortable as possible.

These suggestions and tips are based on my personal experience as a son and principal caregiver to my mother for 14 years. On her request, the first 10 years were spent in her own home. When she was ready, she accepted my long-standing invitation and moved in with me.

Simple actions can be taken. For instance: 1) removing all area rugs or at minimum putting anti-slip tape under to prevent falls, 2) moving all items kitchen items that you utilize to the lower two shelves of your cupboards for easier access, 3) Buying food items (or transfering lrager ones into smaller ones) that are in small containers for easier handling, and much more.
