Lasting Touch

For the month of June, ROSS will have this incredible and moving book available for purchase at our offices.

20% of each book sold will be donated back to ROSSS to continue to support our efforts around seniors health and well being.

Lasting Touch is a moving memoir of a mother and son’s relationship through the joys, challenges, and discoveries of family caregiving. It offers personal insights that add to what doctors and specialists have said on the topic, as well as resources available to help.

Author Jean-François Pinsonnault wants the book to inspire other sons to take a more active role in caring for their parents as they age. “My mother took care of me when I was growing up, so when the time came, it was my turn.”

In Canada, the trend is often to put an aging parent or parents in a nursing home or retirement residence when they are losing their independence. Often the option of family caregiving is overlooked. If it’s a viable possibility, Pinsonnault says it can be a truly fulfilling experience.

The number of seniors in need of support is growing steadily and the current health care system has yet to adapt to accommodate the influx. More family caregivers are needed to accommodate Canada’s aging population.
