We recently shared a couple of posts that you might be interested in. First, the Seniors Police Academy registration information for their third 6 week (2 hours a day) program that they hold at the Rothesay Regional Police station. It is designed to educate seniors on topics such as fraud prevention, traffic safety, internet safety, and elder abuse. Starting on October 8th, there is no cost to participate. Space is limited so register soon by contacting Cst. Krystal Daley at 849-5791 or [email protected].

Second, you can get a copy of the Seniors' Guide to Services and Programs is a resource for information about services and programs available to New Brunswick seniors.  It is produced and distributed by the Senior and Healthy Aging Secretariat, Department of Healthy and Inclusive Communities, Province of New Brunswick. Visit the website to get a copy of the guide.

As always, if you have any questions about our caregiver training programs or our homecare services, give us a call.

Six Principles of Care
Mom & Daughter
By Sharon A. O'Brien, SC; RN, PG; BSW, RSW; CG
Executive Vice-President of Policy & Education

The tests have been done. The tentative diagnosis has been made. Your loved one has Alzheimer Disease. You are devastated. You now must face the reality of your fears.
Each day will bring new realities and new challenges. You accept the challenge. The love is deep and the commitment goes well beyond any difficulties encountered over the years.

There are six principles of care that need to be considered as you accept the challenge to provide appropriate care.
Did you know?

All homecare workers must be entered into a training program or have a home care certificate.


Care Link Advantage: Peace of Mind, Theirs & Yours.
Mother & Daughter There is no place like home. And that is exactly where your
loved ones want to continue living. Now you and Care Link Advantage can keep them there.

It's easy. And it's proven. Mom loves her home, and her in Care Link Advantage Logo dependence.  She does not want to move.  Retirement and assisted living facilities can be expensive.  You and your siblings worry about her safety, and you  know you cannot be there for her 24 hours a day. 

Now you can both have what you want.  Mom gets to stay in her home, and you get the peace of mind you need through Care Link Advantage.

We have real concerns when a loved one is living alone.
  • Are they eating properly?
  • Are they sleeping properly?
  • Are they wandering outside of their home when they should not be?
  • Are they taking their medications when they should?
  • And perhaps the biggest concern of all... Are they "Up & About" and O.K. as they should be, or have they had a problem and/or a fall and are unable to push their PERS (Personal Emergency Response System) pendant to call for help?
