What every older Canadian should know about: Income and benefits from government programs

There are many government programs designed to help older Canadians stay financially independent. In most cases you must apply for income or benefits from a government program.

Gone Fishing

A millionaire walked past an old man sitting on the curb outside a bar. The old man had a fishing rod, and he seemed to be trying to catch fish in the storm drain. Taking pity, the millionaire took the old man to a nearby restaurant for a meal. As they ate, the rich man asked, “So how is fishing in that storm drain working out for you?” “Not bad,” said the old man. “You’re the third one I’ve caught today.”

Age-associated changes in metabolism can affect how our bodies process the food we eat. After age 30, metabolic rate begins to slow. Lean body mass (muscle) decreases and body fat increases. You can slow the rate of decline with proper diet and regular physical activity. However, even with these pre-emptive measures, some metabolic slowing still occurs. The Johns Hopkins Medical Letter suggests the following dietary precautions, for those 50 years or older: Calories. Be sure you're...
