Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor country often seems to be continually on the move. Job transfers, professional opportunity elsewhere' and skilled labor following the need almost keeps the population' transient. Very often it's the wife who may object to a move, but if her husband is in a transitional posi- tion where she knows his advancement depends upon moving from one city to another, she accepts it as gracefully as possible. What about children, then? Perhaps loss of friends seems insignificant compared with a change of house but a move can result in more than just unhappy children. The Guidance Centre at Loyola University, Chi- cago, 111., in conjunction with a major North Ameri- can moving company undertook a symposium re- cently on the effects of a change of environment on the child. The outcome of the symposium was that it wasn't too important when or even how often a family moves, but instead how the family makes the move will affect the child the most. Taking part in the symposium were 10 PhDs, many of whom have conducted their own studies into the effect of a family move on a child and the resulting effect on their school studies. The attitude of the parents toward the move can affect the child, noted several of the psychologists present. Dr. Ralph Ojemann, director of child-edu- cation, Psychology and Preventive Psychiatry Edu- cational Research Council of America, Cleveland, says that studies show that the number of moves does not seem to affect academic achievement. Rather the children of parents who 'have a positive attitude to- ward changing schools tend to adjust more readily. -A- One very interesting point that differs from the common trend of summer moves was disputed by Dr. Donald Brieland of the University of Chicago. He said that if a child is moved during the school year he will reach his new destination at a time when it is easiest to make friends in his new school. The pre-schooler as well may be confused over separation from one parent simply because he is not old enough to understand what is going on. In supporting Dr. Brieland, Dr. Des Lauriers, a professor of psychology at the School of Medicine at the University of Missouri Kansas City, Missouri said the season has little effect on moving, stability within the family is of prime importance. As an interesting side note, Dr. Des Lauriers said that one of the factors leading to the deterioration of the family is that it has become dull and interesting, with everything happening the same every day. He said that a move can actually be stimulating and bring new experience in the family's life, that it enables the family to master new experiences and new situations. Dr. Henry David of the American Institutes Re- search in Washington, D.C. will be appreciated by working women everywhere as he reiterated that is is not the amount of time one spends with a child but the quality of that time. He said a woman needs to take a major role in society and that business should be paying more attention to the wives and children who are also being moved. Peer groups were also found to be of great im- portance to the child. How will he get along with his new friends? The fact that a classroom can have geveral teachers coming and going as substitutes, can affect the child's stability as well. Perhaps the keynote of the whole symposium was put by Dr. J. F. WohlwiE psychology professor at Clark University, Worcester, Mass, was that "young children in the presence of a loved adult can remain impervious to turmoil around them."

This senior citizens' living complex nearing completion in North Toronto con- 4 sists of two wings. One wing 399 beds for old people requiring bed and semi-bed nursing care. The other wing has 290 bachelor and one-bedroom apartment! with rent ranging up from a month, geared to income. Improved Facilities, Services Needed Home-For-Aged Boom In Canada By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor In the last few years, gov- ernments have gone into the business of building homes for the aged in a big way. Quebec has built 202 homes with beds since 1966, at a cost of Last De- cember the Ontario govern- ment announced grants of to be used in the construction and furnishing of three new homes. Alberta al- ready has opened two in 1970. The cost is usually shared by the province, a municipal- ity or charitable organization and often the federal govern- ment In some eases new buildings are replacing old homes, so every bed does not add one to the existing total. The construction, is part of efforts to solve a social prob- lem that has been of increas- ing concern in recent years. People live longer than they did. Their families live at a distance or in homes top small for three generations. Rising costs shrink fixed in- comes. MANY NEED CARE Many people need a place to live where they can get some care or some subsidization to stretch a small income. Homes for full-time healthy residents are not the whole answer. There is still a need for more accommodation and nursing-home or hospital care. There is a need for serv- ices to help people stay in their own homes, and for oc- casional temporary accommo- dation. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press indicates provincial governments are giving some thought to these needs, but have treated the construction of homes as the priority need. Most homes for the aged have a waiting list. They can- not make room for people who want their shelter just for a few weeks or months. Some experimenting is being done with foster-home care for the elderly which could solve that problem as well as others. An Ontario nurse says she believes citizen and profes- sional interest must increase before there will be more money for nursing-home and hospital care for lie elderly. The other large gap is in housekeeping and nursing services that would help eld- erly people stay in their own homes as long as passible. Where services da exist, such as the Victorian Order of Nurses, Visiting Homemakers or the Red Cross, they are spread thin due to shortages of money and staff for the ex- tent of the work that could be done. NEW ONES BETTER The Manitoba government FHE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes I ger to see the score card, or is it going fo be locked in the 'Top Secret1 with all the has a program of nursing and housekeeping. People who can pay do. British Columbia has some homemakers and tem- p o r a r y accommodations, largely financed by Commun- ity Chest funds, and provided on a means-test basis. Most of the new homes for the aged are an improvement over older models. They have recreation rooms, lounges and laundry rooms, and are usually built under regula- tions that make such facilities mandatory. Many of the new buildings have single and double rooms only in contrast to the wards and rooms for four that are common in older homes. There is a scattering of low-rent apartment and lodge accommodation for elderly people, but these are rare as yet. St. John's, Nfld, has just completed a housing project for old people that has a staff matron to look in oh residents regularly. Nova Scotia has some apartments for couples built into its homes. Ontario has some senior citizens' apartment buildings handled under the Ontario Housing Corp. Edmonton and Calgary now have housekeeping-unit homes in which the grounds are maintained and residents do the rest. More are being con- sidered for other parts of Al- berta. British Columbia, Canada's retirement province, requires that people who live in their subsidized apartment-style homes be residents of the area for at least a year be- fore admittance. Newfoundland has one pro- vincial home for the aged fi- nanced half and half by Ot- tawa and St. John's. It is unu- sual in that it can handle peo- ple who are chronically ill or in need of long hospital stays.

Newfoundland's other homes are run by religious groups and subsidized by the province. Homes In most provinces have mixed financing. Provin- cial f.nd federal money is often supplied for construction or building costs with a mu- nicipality or non-profit chari- table organization such as a church prepared to supply land and to operate the home. The governments also subsi- dize residents who cannot pay the full cost for themselves. Nova Scotia has seven sen- ior citizens' residences with 30 to 150 beds each. Prince Ed- ward Island has seven nursing homes. New Brunswick has between 90 and 100 auxiliary homes with beds. On- tario has 78 municipal homes and 80 charitable homes with beds.

She never wants any dessert until it comes to the table. Then her fork is in everybody's plate. She only "tastes" which, for some strange reason she doesn't consider eating. I've tried to explain (he calories don't know whether she tasted the cake or ate it outright. She does same with pie, ice cream and sandy. Another stunt of hers is to take small helpings and tells everyone she is dieting. But when she clears the table, she'eats whatever is left. Last night it was mashed potatoes, rolls, spinach ring, corn souffle and chocolate pie. If people really want to lose weight why do they lie to themselves? Who are they kidding? Comment, please.-Fatso'j Skirniy Sister DEAR SKINNY: The flesh is when there's lot of it, it's usually weaker. Eating is one of the major pleasures of life. It's not easy to pass up tempting foods or quit eating when you're still hungry. Your sister is fighting a tough battle. You could help her by showing a little compassion, Skinny.
