Elder Care with Barbara Kirby – 4th Thursday of the Month 1PM PST on NFTS – BASED IN CANADA – AN NFTS MESSENGER OF LIGHT SINCE JULY 2017 – Barbara Kirby knows first-hand the challenges and rewards of serving as an advocate for those needing a voice in our service systems. In 15 years of navigating the health care system on behalf of her parents, Barbara came face to face with the complexity, richness, gaps, and sometimes confusion, within our health and service systems, and the resulting impact this has on caregivers and care receivers. This experience inspired Barbara to leave her successful long-term career as an investment advisor in order to share her direct knowledge and skills, and to offer her private services as a seniors advocate and consultant for those who need help in accessing our systems and resources. She is the creator of Planning for Later Life – Your Personal Resource Book, a comprehensive tool to use as a roadmap in determining later life needs. TODAY: Kim Slater, a spokesperson for the Association of Family Councils in residential care on Vancouver Island [BC Canada].
