In Canada we have systems that provide care at every stage of a person’s life. It is especially important for the elderly to have safe places to live because the population of senior citizens is growing. Beside the hospital you can see a retirement home where the elderly can live comfortably. In the retirement home there are lots of things to see and do, including fitness, games, music, crafts, and special events. Staff and volunteers are always nearby to lend a hand when needed.

Challenge Yourself!

  • Test your knowledge

  • True or False

    Gerontology is the field of working with the elderly.

Can You Draw?

Draw or describe your favourite place to read, or your favourite place to listen to stories.

Think about it…

Have you ever listened to an elder tell a story? They have many important lessons to share. Can you name any places where you can work or volunteer with the elderly?

How does your body change as you age? How has your body changed over the last three years?
