  • If you’re looking for a fun or an environmentally friendly way to get around, there’s now a plethora of electric transportation available.

  • You’re a senior or almost one. You’ve lived your life as a straight person, maybe with a spouse, children and grandchildren. Your friends know you as straight. So does your community. But that’s not who you are.

  • The proposal was intriguing: trade your house for one in Northern Ireland for a couple of weeks at a great cost savings to both parties. The visitors from Ulster would treat Doug Ross’s Nepean home as if it were their own and Ross and his wife at the time would be expected to do the same.

  • Brian Hills lost his wife of 46 years in fewer than five months — the hardest four months of his life. He and his beloved wife Sam had just returned from Cuba when she got the diagnosis — her third bout of breast cancer, and this one had metastasized.

Past Issue


The inaugural issue of Sage60 came together slowly and then quickly. The idea for this digital ’zine came a while back, but the Association’s 60th anniversary offered the perfect inspiration to finally produce our inaugural issue. Given that we celebrated 60 years of advocacy throughout 2023, honouring the achievements of Claude Edwards, fondly remembered as the founding father of the Association and an indefatigable negotiator, was a no-brainer. In addition to looking back on our early years, readers will also find an exploration of later-in-life spirituality, a frank investigation of intermittent fasting with Jason Fung, Canadian nephrologist and New York Times best-selling author of The Obesity Code, and a discussion about what steps parents of dependent adult children need to consider as they age. 


The concept of intermittent fasting is everywhere, but is it sensible? Sage60 talks to the founder of this kind of fasting about how and why it works.

There are a number of resources and strategies for aging parents who have children with disabilities whose futures they want to ensure are safe and positive.

Claude Edwards was elected to the job of president three times and leaves a lasting legacy for retirees through his significant on-the-job victories.

Seniors are increasingly turning to spirituality, either through mindfulness or religion, to give meaning to their lives.
