About

My view of the world from the long term care (LTC) nursing home where I live.

The writer is resident in an Ontario, Canada, long term care nursing home since he was 86. He came to Canada from northern England  in  January 1954. This is a running diary of some of the writer’s thoughts & what he notices of the world around him.

Canada being a large country traverses tightly occupied areas to complete wilderness areas. The climate compared to global is cold to very cold and includes three oceans. There are many peoples mixed in of which the aboriginals are important to Canada. (John Ralston Saul tells us in his 2014 book The Comeback that the aboriginals are growing in population at a rate that will not see their extinction but the majority in Canada).

As a consequence to the growing and varied origin of the population life needs in family homes & long term care both vary widely in the methods of delivery and so the writing of this blog.  There is emphasis on Ontario province and primary attention is given to nursing homes where the writer is resident. It is impossible though not to include life in family homes. All provinces and territories are covered.
