Originally posted @allaboutestates. It is hard to focus on anything outside of the current state of affairs and mounting challenges  as a result of Covid. Everyone’s lives are impacted at some level, so today’s blog discusses a few elder care concerns I am seeing. Most recently I have read that the Ontario government is making changes to […]
