TORONTO, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Canada's population is aging, and adult
offspring are feeling the pressure. Almost 10 million Canadian adults believe
they will have to help care for their parents or in-laws and almost 6 million
believe they will have to provide financial or social assistance, according to
The financial-services firm Edward Jones and the Sunrise Senior Living
have recognized the need for more information surrounding this important
societal matter and are launching a collaborative program designed to offer
local communities financial educational programming at Sunrise locations.
As part of the pilot program, Edward Jones and Sunrise Senior Living are
co-sponsoring two free seminars with co-authors Dr. Michael Gordon and Bart
Mindszenthy of the book, Parenting Your Parents. The authors will provide
insights, lessons learned and strategies to help people to take care of their
aging parents, while maintaining quality of life.

About Sunrise Senior Living
Twenty-five years ago, Paul and Terry Klaassen set out to champion
quality of life for seniors, beginning with a passionate desire to introduce a
fresh alternative for those with long-term care needs. The Klaassens hoped to
create an environment designed around people - a place where residents would
like to live, families would like to visit and team members would like to
work. Erasing all signs of an institutional setting, the Klaassens developed a
unique approach to care that would become the new model for assisted living -
Sunrise Senior Living. Today, their dream is thriving in more than 440 senior
living and care communities around the world, including nine in Ontario.
