SENIORS INFORMATION & RESOURCES

W

hen seeking out senior-specific fi information and resources on matters such as health, special interest groups or local fi fitness opportunities, it can be hard to know where to begin.

The supplement you hold in your hands is a good place to start but there are a few spots in Nanaimo worth considering as places to save a lot of time while finding out more about opportunities and services available locally. Seniors centres in Nanoose Bay and Nanaimo are a logical place to begin, with friendly people always on hand to offer any assistance or advice they can and many tempting opportunities for education and recreation available right there. Some numbers to jot down as contacts of interest might include the Paradise Island Seniors Society at 250-7549566 and the Harbour City Seniors at 250-755-7501 – both are indispensable resources for anyone looking to stay active in an atmosphere that promotes camaraderie and new friendships. Naturally an assortment of health issues can arise in age and the provincial government’s Health and Seniors Information Line is available during regular business hours to help at www.gobv.bc.ca/health or by calling 1-800-4654911. Just a taste of places to get informed. Happy hunting!

SENIORS HOUSING & ASSISTED LIVING

Home equity gives seniors independent golden retirement dians aged 65 and older will jump to about six million by 2016. As Canada's population ages, a recent Ipsos Reid survey of Canadians aged 45 to 60 reveals that 61 per cent intend on remaining in their homes for as long as they can. The desire for Canadians to stay in their current homes increases as they grow older, according to the survey fi findings. With spring home renovation season just around the corner, now is the perfect time for homeowners to start their spatial and financial planning to ensure their home is up to accessibility standards to enjoy an independent retirement in their beloved homes.

However, the costs associated with home accessibility upgrades and hiring additional labour can quickly add up to a big expense. Rather than financing fi home projects with mainstream, high-interest debt solutions like a bank loan or credit card, HomEquity Bank's CHIP Home Income Plan allows homeowners aged 55 and over to access up to 50 per cent of the equity locked up in their homes in tax-free cash without requiring monthly payments. Homeowners can use this to improve monthly cash flow and help fund major home renovations that will help them enjoy a comfortable retirement. Seniors maintain full ownership of their property and will not be required to service the interest or repay the principal for as long as they own and live in their home. CHIP Home Income Plans are provided by HomEquity Bank to senior homeowners with no credit, income or medical qualifications. More information is fi available online at www.chip.ca, by phone at 1-866-233-2989,or by contacting your fi financial advisor or mortgage broker. www.newscanada.com

The great “no-flip mattress” rip-off How much money have you lost trying to get a good night’s sleep? If you want sweet dreams, read on. by John Rogers, President, John’s Bedroom Barn

For over a quarter of a century now I’ve been searching for the perfect mattress system. I’ve listened to sales rep after sales rep telling me about their “latest and greatest, new and improved” products ad nauseam. On many an occasion I’ve bought these “latest and greatest” systems for my own stores, hoping each time that the product would live up to its hype. I’d conservatively guess that over the years we’ve spent over $150,000 on mattress systems that failed and warranties that didn’t work because of the fine print. And over the years we’ve listened to innumerable clients who are in the same boat. They’ve spent thousands of dollars on conventional mattress systems that failed weeks, months or a couple of years after their purchase, only to find that the terms of their warranty made it impossible to collect. What’s wrong with the mattress industry In the old days, mattress had quilted “comfort layers” both top and bottom. This meant we all had to flip our mattresses regularly in order to efficiently utilize both layers of topping. Now I never met anyone who enjoyed flipping their mattress, so it was inevitable that sooner or later someone would come up with a solution. This great day arrived in 2003 when manufacturers declared that the “no flip mattress” was the answer. “No more fighting with your bed! With our New and Improved Product, all you have to do is lie down and go to sleep” Sounds great, but were they really trying to save you extra work? No - they were trying to cut costs. Instead of quilting mattresses both top and bottom to provide you with two comfort layers, they saved a pile of money by only quilting the top. And because there’s only one quilted layer, guess what wears out twice as fast? You got it - your no-flip mattress. So it turns out that while the no-flip gimmick may have saved you some work, the real winners are the manufacturers who cut their costs by cutting quality. Why the warranties don’t work You can still get 15 - 20 year warranties on these new-

fangled mattresses, so it looks like your new no-flip mattress should last as long as your old one. But let’s take a look at the fine print. Old warranties used to protect you against the excessive softening of your mattress over time. New mattress warranties claim that up to 2 inches of visible height loss, or body impressions, are completely normal and so not warranted. What does that mean exactly? Here’s an example. We’ve all sat on a couch that’s old - you know, the kinds where you take a seat and your behind ends up lower then your knees. Have a look at the cushion when you climb out of the trough. Has it lost any height from its orginal size? Unlikely. But the top layer has lost all its ability to cushion you. It’s almost impossible to lose height on foam, which is what all mattresses are topped with, but that doesn’t mean the foam is doing the job you paid it to do. As the couch example demonstrates, just because your mattresses might look fine, it doesn’t mean that it will remain comfortable. But your warranty probably won’t cover you if it doesn’t. We have some solutions The mattresses in my stores are made exclusively for my stores according to our specifications. We don’t follow the industry by touting new gimmicks, cutting corners and writing warranties that protect us, not you. Instead, we use old-fashioned common sense coupled with great Canadian - made foams and we do a little backyard tinkering when we find a better way or a superior product. Our mattress can be made differently from side to side to accommodate different comfort preferences, usually at no additional cost. The mattresses can be flipped - easily! - and if components like the topping material do wear out, they can easily and inexpensively replaced. It’s not expensive! A good queen-size mattress from us starts at $499.99. Come in and see our mattress specialists and find out why we are “the home of a great night’s sleep:”.
