Gordon Carmichael

Gordon’s Story

I am an eighty-eight year old man with a number of health issues. I enjoy the Seniors Daycare Program because it gives me a reason to get up and get dressed. I wait for the taxi to take me to the Harbourview Hospital where I meet friends and when I arrive I am offered breakfast. I also like the exercise programs that loosen up my muscles. I learn exercises that can use at home. By going to the seniors program my caregiver David, and my wife too, have some time to shop, to go to meetings or just relax. Read more →
