The holidays, for many, are a time of joy, connection, and wonder. Ads sell a narrative of love and family coming together in a neat little package. While this may be the case for many, for those who have experienced a recent loss, this time of year can feel overwhelming, sad, and hopeless. 

With kids back in school or full-time daycare, respiratory illness season is here and it’s a perfect time to change things up a bit and set yourself up for a healthy and active winter season. The goal is not necessarily to avoid illness altogether, but to have a milder course, to decrease complications and hospitalizations, and prevent transmission to those who are more susceptible, like the immune-compromised, young children and babies, and people over the age of 70.

Who are these caregivers? They are family or friends who give unpaid care to a loved one who may have a mental or physical health condition, chronic illness, or age-related fragility. They are the quiet heroes in our community medical system that help form the backbone for the health and happiness of many people. One hundred years ago, the average life expectancy in Canada was only around 50 years of age, but with improved medical care, hygiene, diet, and healthier lifestyles most people expect to live well into their 80’s. That means that more people will need care at some point in their life.
