Ombudsman of Ontario

Certificates: Birth, Death or Marriage The Office of the Registrar General provides copies of birth, death, and marriage certificates which occurred in the Province of Ontario. If you were born or married in another province or country, you must write to the proper authorities there. There is a cost attached to the issuance of certificates.

SERVICES | Government Eligibility for the Old Age Security pension and the Guaranteed Income Supplement The Government of Canada proposes to gradually increase the age of eligibility for the OAS pension and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) between the years 2023 and 2029, from 65 to 67. People currently receiving OAS benefits will not be affected by the proposed changes. The Government of Canada also proposes to gradually increase the ages at which the Allowance and the Allowance for the Survivor are provided, from 60-64 today to 62-66.

Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) People getting the Old Age Security pension who need financial help may be eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplements (GIS). To find out if you are entitled for GIS you must fill out a GIS application form. An application for GIS is mailed, at your request, once your Old Age Security Pension is approved for payment.

Voluntary deferral of the Old Age Security pension The Government of Canada also proposes a voluntary deferral of the Old Age Security (OAS) pension that will give people the option to defer take-up of their OAS pension by up to five years past the age of eligibility, and subsequently receive a higher, actuarially adjusted pension.

may be eligible for full or partial CPP retirement benefits, provided you have contributed to the plan. A person who has turned 60 years of age may choose to begin receiving CPP benefits at that age. The CPP adjusts the amount of your pension by 0.5% for each month before or after your 65th birthday from the time you begin to receive your pension. The adjustment is permanent. This means that if you choose to start your pension early, the payment does not increase when you reach 65. For example, if you start your pension at 60, your monthly payment is 30% lower than if you wait until you’re 65. However, by starting it sooner, you will likely receive it for a longer time. If you start your pension at 70, your monthly payment is 30% higher than if you had taken it at 65. You may be able to share your Canada Pension Plan benefits with your spouse or common-law partner. You must apply to get these benefits.

The Allowance Benefits A 60 to 64-year-old spouse or common-law partner of a person who is getting OAS may be able to get Allowance Benefits. The spouse or common-law partner must meet residence requirements and the couple’s income must be within set limits. You must fill out an application each year if you still need Allowance Benefits, otherwise payment will be discontinued.

Allowance for Survivors Financial help is offered to the legal or commonlaw spouse; the survivor must be 60 to 64 years old and meet both residence and income rules.

Canada Pension Plan (CPP) The Canada Pension Plan offers retirement pensions, surviving spouse benefits and disability benefits. If you are at least 60 years of age, you 4 | SENIORS Activities & Services Directory | SPRING & SUMMER 2013


SERVICES | Government Refund Inquiries

Passports Passports are valid for 5 years now. Effective July 1, 2013, a new 10-year ePassport will be introducd with new fees for 5 and 10-year passports. Persons born in Canada must submit an original birth certificate. Those born outside of Canada must submit an original certificate of citizenship. Unlike the General Application Process, the Simplified Renewal Application Process does not require applicants to submit documentary evidence of citizenship (birth certificate, citizenship card, etc.) or provide supporting identification. The application form is shorter and no guarantor declaration is necessary. The Government of Canada continues to recommend that travellers carry a valid Canadian passport for all visits abroad, including the United States. A passport is the only universally accepted identification document and it proves that you have a right to return to Canada. Canadians are encouraged to plan ahead to avoid peak periods. Canadian citizens require a passport to enter the United States at land ports of entry as of June 1, 2009.

Living Wills

G.R.A.N.D.

A Living Will is a document that states your wishes regarding consent to or refusal of specific treatment. A Living Will is different from a Last Will and Testament because a Living Will addresses your health care, whereas a Last Will and Testament deals with matters of property. Both documents are essential for every adult. The Living Will allows you to direct your family, physician, and others about your health care choices, based on your own values and beliefs. A completed Living Will should be very specific as to what type of health care choices you wish in end of life situations. An example of what a Living Will addresses includes whether the person wishes to be hooked to a ventilator or respirator. A complete Living Will kit with instructions for how to complete the form is available from Dying With Dignity at the address below.

The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is priceless! This bond is special, providing a sense of heritage and continuity in today’s rapidly changing society. Yet today, factors such as broken marriages, divorce, death and other circumstances often destroy this mutually important relationship. Many grandparents lose access to their grandchildren in which case both the grandparents and children suffer. G.R.A.N.D. works to: • Provide emotional support to grandparents who, for one reason or another, have been denied access to their grandchildren. • Make the public and professionals aware of this ill in our society. • Influence Provincial Family Law to recognize the interest that grandparents have in their grandchildren’s well-being. Aims of the G.R.A.N.D. are: • Support system • Best interest of the child • Mediation • Public education and awareness • Prevention through family life education • Changes in the law • Specific recognition of grandparents For membership information and meetings call: G.R.A.N.D.

They are: Country Roads Community Health Centre (in Portland); Merrickville District Community Health Centre (in Merrickville); the North Lanark Community Health Centre (located in Lanark Village); and the Smiths Falls Community Health Centre in Smiths Falls. Community Health Centres are an effective and unique model of primary health care where an inter-disciplinary team of health care professionals work together to respond to people’s individual health concerns. At all CHC’s in our area, this team includes: doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, dietitians, social workers, chiropodists, respiratory therapists, health promoters and community developers. In addition to primary care services, CHC’s also offer a wide range of free health promotion, education and prevention programs to address the broader health needs of the people and the communities they serve. In most cases, you do not have to be a client of the CHC in order to access these programs. While each CHC has their own specific group programs based on the unique needs of their community, they often include groups where people: learn how to manage their diabetes, asthma and other chronic conditions; get support to quit smoking; participate in community-based exercise classes, walking groups or yoga classes; learn relaxation, meditation and other techniques for stress reduction; and learn how to cook and purchase healthy foods on a budget.

SERVICES | Medical Services Foot Care Older people often find it difficult to reach their feet and therefore have trouble caring for them. Simple procedures such as nail cutting can usually be performed by caregivers. Elders with diabetes or circulation problems, however, should have a podiatrist or chiropodist attend to their complete foot care. Most Home Support Programs and Para-Med Health Services sponsor weekly footcare clinics. For clients who cannot attend the clinics, agencies can arrange in-home footcare.

Tips for Vision Problems Proper Lighting • Ensure bulb wattage is high enough for the particular area. • Have several, evenly distributed light sources around all rooms. • Nightlights should be placed in hallways, the bedroom and the bathroom. • Consistent lighting minimizes shadows. • Dimmer switches and tri-light bulbs will control light intensity. • It is easier if switches are on the outside of the room so that you do not have to fumble in the dark. • Put intense light at the top and bottom of staircases and steps. Eliminate Glare • Use low-gloss wax on furniture and do not wax floors. • Minimize use of fluorescent lights as they produce more glare than incandescent lights. • Blinds or sheer curtains should be used in brightly sunlit rooms. • Shiny furniture or counter surfaces should be removed or covered. • Paint walls with matte-finish paint.

Do you snore, feel tired or sleep during the day? You may have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Sleep apnea can be caused by either complete obstruction of the airway or partial obstruction, both of which can wake one up. Untreated sleep apnea can increase the chance of having high blood pressure and even a heart attack or stroke. Untreated sleep apnea can also increase the risk of diabetes and the risk for work related accidents. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common treatment for sleep apnea.

FEATURE | Consult a hearing loss specialist Paul Dunlop has all the latest improvements Paul Dunlop Hearing Aid Service has been serving the community for 32 years. It’s never easy when one suspects a loss of hearing. It’s not something that happens suddenly but can occur gradually, eventually making it difficult to hear a conversation in a crowded room or listen to the television without having to turn the volume well up. The decision to consult a hearing loss expert to determine if a hearing aid is needed also is no simple matter. For some, even admitting there is a problem is a hurdle they have trouble overcoming. For 32 years, Paul Dunlop has been greeting individuals, assessing their needs, then fitting them with equipment that ultimately brings the world back to them. Rarely, he says, do people want hearing aids. But after experiencing the improved quality of life these small pieces of modern technology can bring, they’re happy with their decision. You are invited to have your hearing tested at Paul Dunlop Hearing Aid Service, located at 31 William St. E. in Smiths Falls. If you hear but don’t always understand what people are saying—people seem to mumble—you have to ask people to repeat—you have trouble understanding when more than one person is talking or when there are other noises, please come in for a consultation.

While many people are reluctant at first, they soon realize their value and return to Dunlop for regular assessments and upgrades when needed. If you have questions about your hearing and whether a hearing aid might be right for you, please call 613-283-7421.

DUNLOP

Even people now wearing a hearing aid or those who have been told nothing could be done to help them, may benefit from the latest improvements. “It’s continually improving,” Mr. Dunlop says of the technology being created to improve one’s hearing.

FEATURE | Eighty-five per cent of women are wearing the wrong size bra ... are you? When you are wearing the wrong size bra, you can suffer from discomfort and inadequate support. And finding the right size bra can be a frustrating and challenging experience. It can be more difficult if you suffer from sore back, sore neck, sore tired shoulders, poor posture, shallow breathing, mastectomy, poor circulation, surgery scars, mastalgia, lymphatic blockage, or any other bra issue. You would be surprised what a good fit can do for your quality of life.

and you try on the TAB Bra, you will see the difference right away and you will notice the comfort. Your clothes will fit you better and you will feel better. Imagine a comfortable bra with no underwire and no elastic in the straps. Our TAB bras offer optimal comfort and support with soft cotton next to the breast tissue that gives you health, comfort and shape. We offer custom-fit bras for everyone whether you are a small petite woman or you are a plus size gal. Our bras start at size 28 and go to 44 with cups starting at A through to KK. Where can you buy that in the store? As well, TAB shape wear is excellent when you want to look and feel your best especially when you are dressing up and going out. It hugs you not squeezes you to help improve your overall shape. Comfy Posture Solutions also offers FIRMA Energywear, comfortable active wear that can be worn every day. These compression garments help you in terms of increased blood microcirculation, reduced muscle fatigue, enhanced cellular metabolism and improved skin elasticity. Comfy Posture Solutions is a home-based business located in Ottawa (near Greenboro Station - South Keys). In special circumstances, a home consultation is available for seniors and those with disabilities.

Think about it … does your bra ride up in the back? Do your shoulder straps dig in? Maybe your breasts are sitting on your belly? Does your current bra pinch you? Do you have a lot of puffiness or extra breast tissue or poor lymphatic drainage under your arms? Are “the girls” popping out and spilling over the top of your bra?

FEATURE | Customer service key to Madden Hearing success Madden Hearing Centre is a successful, local business, thanks to the friends and neighbours they care for each day. A family operated business since 1989, Madden Hearing Centre takes pride in having firmly established roots in each of the communities they serve.

Madden Hearing Centre has been able to extend this service to their local communities. When a potential hearing problem is detected it is important to address it as soon as possible to limit the impact it has on a child’s school experience.

With a focus on local, caring service as well as the most up-to-date products on the market, they have five fully equipped locations to serve their clients. The Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Perth and Brockville offices are open five days-a-week. The Kemptville location is currently staffed two days a week.

The convenient locations of the five Madden Hearing Centre clinics help reduce the travel and the waiting time for hearing testing and service. No doctor referral is needed and everyone is welcome to call the clinic location closest to them to book an appointment.

As a full service clinic they appreciate that when a client has a problem with their hearing aid it is an immediate need and they want to be able to provide the service quickly and efficiently. With full-time clinics this type of service is possible. Clients appreciate the Madden Hearing Centre model of service they have come to know. Each centre strives to be a welcoming place for clients regardless of their needs or mobility. The benefit of being a local family operated business is that each location is a consistent reflection of the caring, professional atmosphere Shirley Madden established over 20 years ago.

Madden Hearing Centre staff work closely with each client investigating all avenues to find the best fit for their individual needs. They also believe that there is a need for regular testing of children’s hearing in the area. Thanks to the expertise of their audiologist, Debbie Harris-Tobin,

Because of the staff’s close ties to each of their communities, Madden Hearing Centre ran a campaign in October, November and December, 2012 to raise funds for local charities. This campaign was a huge success with over $10,000.00 raised to support local charities in Smiths Falls, Brockville, Kemptville, Perth, Carleton Place and Almonte. The entire staff would like to give a special thanks to all clients for their support in making this Charity campaign a success.

MADDEN

The clinicians at Madden Hearing Centre realize that hearing loss is not just a problem for the elderly, since many younger people are coming in search of a good solution to a very common problem. Hearing loss affects approximately 3 million Canadians. That’s 1 out 10 people! It affects all ages and all walks of life. One product that has proven very successful is the Oticon Connectline. This product line combines hearing aids with the technology of BlueTooth to improve sound from televisions, telephones, music, computers and more. This allows people to connect to everyday sound tailored specifically to their needs.

Madden Hearing Centres pride themselves on building relationships based upon friendly, knowledgeable, accessible service in a warm, caring, secure environment after all, they are your friends and neighbours!

FEATURE | To think of mobility is to think of Mobility Care Company… 20 years ago Malcolm and Peggy Kirkpatrick had a revelation. They realized that there was a lack of any sort of company that serviced/sold home health care equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, canes, etc. in Perth and its surrounding areas and they had a desire to change that. Helping people attain independent mobility became their philosophy. They also recognized that there was indeed a large market/clientele for these sorts of products and services in this area and so they set out to fill this void and Mobility Care Co. was born. Twenty years later they have grown to eight professionals taking care of those in need of assistive devices, but it’s so much more than that. Yes, they have wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, bathroom safety, lift and recline chairs and just about any other assistive tool you may think of. They also do custom adjusting, designing, and fabricating work on some of these items because everyone is different and so are their needs, which means they get personalized care from start to finish. And if you can’t go to them, they will come to you. They offer rental for many items such as ramps, wheelchairs, walkers, bathroom safety items, hospital beds, lift and recline chairs, to name a few, for those with

short-term needs. Give them a call and they can set aside the item for you and have it ready when you are. They offer a wide range of incontinence products/brands such as Prevail, Tena, Tranquility, Kendall, Wings and Sure Care. Delivery is free with a minimum order for extra convenience. For VAC (DVA) & ODSP clients, if you are eligible and provide your K/ODSP number they can bill direct so you don’t have to. One of their many happy clients says: “Thank you so much! I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it to you, but I have never experienced the level of customer service that your company provides! I never hesitate to tell people how wonderful Mobility Care is and I recommend you to everyone. You are ALL doing EVERYTHING right! There is absolutely nothing I would change about your service. You make my life so much easier and I am so very grateful.”

They deal directly with many insurance providers, the Ministry of Health’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP), WSIB, VAC, and ODSP and can help you obtain government funded equipment. For more information please call 1-866-264-2969 or 613-264-2969 from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday or visit their website at www.mobilitycare.ca

FEATURE | Smiths Falls Audiology Clinic helps all adults with hearing challenges 2. Frequent requests for repetition • Hearing impaired people cannot follow the rapid flow of normal conversation. They may hear parts of sentences and lose the rest.

Audiology is the science of hearing and translating that knowledge through hearing tests, teaching, protective measures and, as the need is established, through rehabilitation with amplifying devices and usage of visual clues.

3. Confusion or inappropriate responses to questions • Individuals have been inappropriately labeled “senile” because of serious hearing problems which made adequate communication impossible.

I had never heard of audiology as a profession until my sister, who was a guidance counselor at a high school in Montreal at the time, told me about a professor, Dr. Dan Ling, who had come to give a lecture about the School of Human Communication Disorders at McGill University. It was a program leading to a Master’s degree in Applied Sciences. Almost immediately, I obtained an interview with the head of the program, Dr. Donald Doehring, who reviewed my Bachelor’s degree courses and said that I would be accepted if I did a year of pre-requisite psychology courses involving courses at a Bachelor’s level from year one through four. I pursued this at the University of Toronto and then returned to McGill to study for my Master’s degree. I had superlative teachers along the way, academically and then in the work place, in rehabilitative settings, in large city hospitals, working with general medical practitioners, ear nose and throat specialists and was given enormous support from acoustical engineers and hearing aid manufacturers as well as hearing scientists, colleagues, private industry, District Health Units, and family.

4. Monopolizing the conversation • It is easier for the hearing impaired patient to do the talking as this lessens the burden of trying to listen. 5. Imperfect speech • Sounds in speech which cannot be heard may begin to deteriorate. With presbycusis, high frequency hearing loss occurs first and sounds like “s’ or “sh” may be slurred or dropped completely. 6. Non-verbal responses to questions • This may take the form of nodding or shrugging. The patient may be guessing or pretending to understand in an attempt to conceal a hearing deficit. continued...

Clinical clues to hearing impairment

Registered with Ministry of Health Blue Cross/Veterans Affairs

Hearing tests, simple & advanced procedures, hearing aid selections

1. Abnormal voice level • People with hearing loss have difficulty monitoring their own voice level. • Most people with impaired hearing speak too loudly; some speak too softly.

31 William St. E. Smiths Falls 52 | SENIORS Activities & Services Directory | SPRING & SUMMER 2013


7. Complaints of noises or ringing in the ears • Tinnitus is almost always a sign of hearing loss. It is also the initial complaint of people with acoustic neuromas. It can also occur as a side effect of medications. 8. Complaints of plugging or pressure in the ears • May be a sign of Eustachian tube dysfunction, middle ear fluid, cerumen, or less commonly, endolyphatic hydrops or acoustic neuroma.

11. Recent disinterest in social situations • Avoiding parties, abandoning bridge clubs or church activities may occur as noise levels make understanding too difficult. 12. Expressed disinterest in television • Patients may indicate that there is nothing worthwhile watching when, in fact, they mean that they cannot understand anything they want to watch. Patients exhibiting any of these signs or behaviours may have hearing loss and should be referred for audiology tests.

9. Comments that others are mumbling • Patients with hearing loss hear speech at a low level with many of the sounds missing. Sounds are lost at an unequal rate because hearing loss occurs in different amounts at different frequencies. 10. Complaints of difficulty using the telephone • There may be difficulty understanding speech or even hearing the telephone ring.

The ear is an intricate system and the more information gleaned from testing, the easier the task becomes for a doctor to rule out certain difficulties medically and focus in on the actual site of the problem. This involves sophisticated equipment and procedures, not possible with a simple screening.

FEATURE | Winges Carpentry Service:

Restoration with a

difference When a meaningful home improvement project goes beyond the expertise of the average homeowner, Tim Winges of Winges Carpentry Service is prepared to step in and help you realize your goals.

Just a few of his career highlights include: • the restoration of nine large oak doors at McKay United Church in Ottawa in 2000, • the restoration of the main Victorian fence around the Pakistan High Commisioner’s Residence in Rockcliffe Park in 1998,

With more than 30 years of experience in all aspects of the profession, Tim will treat your project as though it was his own home.

• various jobs in the Glebe and New Edinburgh neighbourhoods in Ottawa such as vinyl tile floors, window replacements, kitchen storage cabinets, basement insulation and water proofing, painting and trimwork, ceramic work, porch and deck work.

Now a Period Restoration Specialist, the carpenter has learned his craft over the years, ever since taking on his first real job at age 17, working for D. Kemp Edwards Lumber Company in Ottawa as the Lathe Operator. His work involved turning balusters, newel posts, table & chair legs, etc. on a turn-of-the-century lathe that could handle material up to 14 ft long.

He has also completed many bathroom restorations in the nation’s capital, as well as a large porch restoration on Main Street in Winchester. For more information, be sure to contact Winges Carpentry at twwinges@xplornet.com.

Winges Carpentry Service has been a registered business for 16 years now and is registered with The Better Business Bureau of Eastern Ontario.

Winges Carpentry Service

While Tim specializes in bringing heritage pieces back to life, he also does all aspects of carpentry including small additions, plaster repair, drywall, painting, ceramics, flooring, special and plain decks, bar tops and more. He also reproduces certain pieces of special woodworking. “I always try to get as much detail out of my clients as possible,” he says. “So then I am able to show them how I will achieve the results that they want. I always love a good challenge.” With three decades working in the profession, Tim has worked throughout Ottawa and the Valley.
