Today I worry about other things. Not how I’m going to make it through the snow. Instead, how we’re going to get through another fall and winter of COVID. Even for the double vaccinated, the Delta variant poses some danger. Without vaccination, the chance of contracting the virus is growing. Although I prefer to write about active ways to plow through the loneliness and isolation of this strange moment in time, there is a part of my mind stuck on that snowy field in winter, frightened that I won’t make it to the other side. As the Italian author Natalia Ginzburg writes, the pessimistic me can give in to “the temptation to let her life go to pieces.”

Beyond enjoyment and entertainment, VR could offer “immersive experiences going deeper and helping tackle isolation and cognitive decline, two of the biggest issues as we age,” according to the online magazine Next Avenue. Many studies show how isolation is linked to a 50 percent higher risk of dementia. “With this in mind VR could power new social connections via shared experiences,” says Kyle Rand, the CEO of Rendever, a Massachusetts high-tech company focusing on health solutions for older adults.

The report illustrated that the entire concept of retirement has changed. Our parents considered retirement as a time to stop working and to wind down their activities. It’s the opposite today. We see our retirement years –the New Retirement– as brimming with potential, as having more freedom – freedom from various work and family responsibilities, and freedom to explore new options and pursue new interests.

After staying at home for 16 months, I became accustomed to this other routine. I slept in every morning, stayed up very late every night, and depended on grocery or restaurant curbside pick-up for food and meals. In certain ways, I became leery of other people. All this wearing of masks and keeping six feet from others helps us to stay healthy. Still, it does have surprising psychological effects too. Now, like me, you might be thinking of expanding the reach of your daily activities, and you’re not precisely certain how to do that. If you’re single and living on your own, you might be considering jumping back into the dating pool.

A home equity reverse mortgage is a loan secured against your home and is available to Canadian homeowners aged 55-plus. For a reverse mortgage, home equity is an essential component, because the amount of equity will determine the size of the reverse mortgage home equity loan available to you. A reverse mortgage home equity loan allows you to cash in up to 55% of your home’s value but included in that 55% will be any loans you already have against your home, which will be paid off by the reverse mortgage.

It became increasingly clear that more awareness around injury prevention was necessary, and for the last five years Injury Prevention Day in Canada’s focus around education and resources on ways to prevent injuries has been unwavering. The Division of Aging and Seniors is committed to decreasing hospital visits and injuries through various public education initiatives, by developing policy around injury prevention, and through community based programming that focusses on ways to prevent injuries and teaches Canadians 65+ how to avoid injury in their day to day lives. National Injury Prevention Day Canada serves as a reminder to Canadians of all ages that small changes, and a little added caution could be the difference between a great day and an unexpected trip to a hospital.
