Seniors prefer funeral to lifestyle planning - Salmon Arm Observer

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Don Henke, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care franchise serving Kelowna, West Kelowna, Penticton, Peachland, Summerland and Okanagan Falls.“Unfortunately, many people do not consider that as we age, we need extra care. While the vast majority of seniors prefer to age at home, they may not realize the range of options available to them, and that this time in their lives requires planning, too.”Related:Poll finds retirement plan top financial priority According to Canadian Association of Retired Persons, 93 per cent of seniors in Canada live at home and want to stay there as long as possible. Despite this fact, Home Instead found that only 74 per cent of seniors have shared their wishes with their adult children.Jay Branton, managing director of Dignity Memorial in Eastern Canada, explains that one barrier to planning is the discomfort the conversation brings to seniors and their adult children.“These conversations are uncomfortable but very important to have,” said Branton. “Start by asking your loved one some simple questions around end-of-life to see where their mind is at. This usually sparks a broader conversation and gets them thinking.”According to the Home Instead survey, aging parents are far more comfortable discussing plans for their own final years (89 per cent) than their adult children are discussing their parents’ plans (68 per cent).“It sounds contradictory, but end of life planning is something that can start far in advance of a senior loved ones’ final years,” said Brian Burlacoff, financial advisor at Sun Life Financial. “Having conversations early on and putting a plan in place now will relieve stress on both aging loved ones ...

Trudeau remembers MP Arnold Chan as a 'faithful and eloquent' guardian of democracy - The Globe and Mail

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Scarborough MP John McKay described by phone to Mr. Chan's wife, Jean Yip, the drama surrounding the government's proposed tax reform that unfolded at the Liberal caucus retreat in Kelowna, B.C. Mr. Chan, who had by then lost the ability to speak, listened in, measuring his approval or displeasure with thumbs up or thumbs down gestures.Story continues below advertisementAnd in recent weeks, Mr. Chan relayed to his long-time friend, Ontario MP Mark Holland, a speech he was hoping to give in the House of Commons this fall about the dangers of using overheated rhetoric, building on the previous plea for civility he'd delivered in June."He wasn't afraid of talk about his end, about death," said Toronto MP Rob Oliphant, a United Church minister who has been helping the Chan family throughout the summer. "But he preferred to talk about his constituents and politics and the party and government and Parliament."On Thursday, Mr. Chan, 50, died at home after battling nasopharyngeal carcinoma, a head-and-neck cancer, on and off for more than 2 1/2 years. Along with his wife, Ms. Yip, Mr. Chan leaves three teenage sons, Nathaniel, Ethan and Theodore.He will be remembered, in part, for the impassioned and emotional plea for civility he delivered in the Commons in June. Speaking only from rough notes, Mr. Chan urged his colleagues to ditch the "canned talking points" and treat the institution – and each other – more honourably. He advised his fellow MPs, "We should use our heads, but follow our hearts."In a statement, Ms. Yip called Mr. Chan "a loving father, wo...

Thames River mystery reunites husband with wife's ashes -

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Funeral Home and she had instructed her husband to scatter her ashes in the Thames River, Port Stanley or anywhere her husband thought was beautiful. Ilhe said he wanted to take his wife's ashes to Kelowna, BC, a place where the couple lived for four years, but a recent heart attack meant he couldn't make the cross-country flight. So he decided the next best thing was to scatter his wife's ashes in the Thames. "My health is failing," he said, noting he never opened the bag in a moment of confusion. "I knew you had to open the bag to get the ashes out, but I, myself, was confused and I just dumped the ashes." "It's a sad story, but it's true."Ilhe said he'll try to scatter his wife's ashes again, but this time he'll mail them to BC where a friend can scatter them in a natural area somewhere on the rim of the community. Let's block ads!

Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north -

Thursday, April 12, 2018

A doctor who spent decades working to improve health care in northern British Columbia is being mourned after he died Tuesday night.Dr. Bert Kelly was a "tireless champion for health care" said Prince George city councillor Susan Scott, who announced his passing via Facebook.Kelly was a key architect of the Northern Medical Program, in which students in UBC's medical program are trained in northern B.C. in an effort to help recruit and retain future medical professionals in a region that historically has been underserved.Faced with chronic doctor shortages in Prince George and the surrounding area, Kelly helped lead a local group of physicians and specialists in what was effectively a strike in 2000, withdrawing non-essential services until the province agreed to commit more funding and efforts to recruitment and retention of doctors in the north. By 2004 the Northern Medical Program was opened, with Kelly serving the role of Executive Director of the Northern Medical Society.Truly sad this morning at the loss of Dr. Bert Kelly! He wa...

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet News

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...
