"The Most Successful People Make Room For Rest"

"Overwork is one of the great problems of modern life. The pace of business is accelerating, companies demand longer hours, smartphones (link is external) allow us to carry the office around with us 24/7, and being busy is a badge of honor. But while overwork now has the quality of a public health crisis, for professionals, entrepreneurs and executives in America it’s nothing new. In 1878, a doctor lamented in the New York Times that rest was a "forgotten art (link is external)." In the 1890s, Harvard philosopher William James lamented Americans’ love of overwork, and argued his fellow citizens would be more productive if they embraced “the gospel of relaxation (link is external)."

But one of the early twentieth century's most consistent critics of chronic busyness and overwork (link is external) was one of the most unexpected: Bertie Forbes, the pioneering business journalist and founder of Forbes magazine."

"Eight nursing homes planning to leave Toronto"

By admin - Published on Tuesday, 16 January 2018 09:25

"A total of eight long-term care homes with more than 1,200 beds between them are planning to move their operations elsewhere rather than build new facilities within the city.

The province has given all long-term care homes which do not meet its current design standards until 2025 to confine with the policy.

That means that 20 of the 36 long-term care facilities in central Toronto will have to be rebuilt if they wish to continue operating."

"Aging-In-Place Report 2017"

By admin - Published on Wednesday, 29 November 2017 16:11

"This spring, Canada hit a new record. Statistics Canada released its 2016 census figures and for the first time in our country’s history, seniors (Canadians over the age of 65) outnumber children (those under 14 years of age). 1

The growth is substantial with the number of seniors increasing a staggering 20 per cent since 2011. This increase was even larger when looking at the oldest Canadians where numbers showed growth of 19.4 per cent for those over 85 and up 41.3 per cent among those over 100.

These increases demonstrate the urgent need for resources for this group – both as it relates to housing, healthcare and more. We know that aging Canadians want to stay in their homes as long as possible and together we want to help drive awareness and share information on the steps to take to not just age, but thrive, in place."
