The majority of Canadians no longer trust our long-term care system, according to recent surveys. Instead, they want to remain in their own homes long term to 'age in place.' Unfortunately, most families neglect or underestimate the planning required.
We have the pleasure of hosting special guest, Karen Henderson, founder of the Long Term Care Planning Network, Canada's leading resource center for aging and long term care planning education. Karen is a nationally recognized speaker, educator, publisher and consultant in the field of long term care, and we're very lucky to have her join us.
It's not just about exercise
Spring weather is arriving and many of us are itching to get active and shed a few Covid pounds. Unfortunately, none of us are getting any younger and often we don't know where to start or how to get results.
Join me and my guest, Personal Trainer Michelle Pembry, to talk about what fitness means as we age. With a specialty in healthy eating, weight loss and active aging, Michelle will guide us on how we can be stronger for longer and enjoy the benefits of an increased healthspan. And attention golfers, don't miss this session as we cover the importance of fitness to your golf game as well as some simple steps you should take before you start swinging a club.
Through our session you will learn:
* The components of fitness
* The most common threats/conditions attributable to aging
* How to get started with simple priorities
* The impact of hormones on our health and wellness
* The benefits of 'clean living'
With 2020 thankfully in the rearview mirror we now set our sights on what is to come in 2021. With the global rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine underway we are eager to discuss the effect on the markets. To maintain our social distancing and provide more context, please join us for a virtual morning coffee. Craig Basinger, our Chief Investment Officer from Richardson Wealth’s asset management division, will share their teams’ views, opinions and thoughts on the current economic landscape.
One of the things we all seem to be missing most as a result of the pandemic is travel. Knowing that travel has been impacted by past calamities like 9/11, how can we expect the travel experience to change? How can we envision the travel landscape one year out, or five years from now?
Know someone who is missing travel as much as you do? Join us and invite your friends and family for this virtual fireside chat with Tanja Steinbock, owner of Barret & Carlysle Travel, our special guest in this edition of our LifeWealth™ Speaker Series.
Things are changing rapidly and Tanja is on top of industry regulations and trends. Please bring your questions.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought monstrous changes and has forced us to rethink not only how we spend our time in the present, but also how we plan for the future and the rest of our lives. For the past 15 years, Fidelity has measured how Canadians feel as they approach, and live in, their retirement. This year, their annual Retirement Survey brings important insights for anyone ages 50 and up about how Canadians are affected by the pandemic, and how it's shaping their readiness for and in retirement.
We'll be joined by expert Michelle Munro from Fidelity as she highlights the main impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians in terms of their retirement plans, and life in retirement. This is essential information to help you rethink your plans for the future. Don't miss this virtual event and the chance to get your questions answered.
