As far as I know, the gov't has spent our pension money that was meant for our retirement. Now, they are scrambling to come up with the cash to pay us our pensions. Baby Boomers will be a financial pox on the gov't, only because there are so many of us. Also, I believe pensioners SHOULD NOT have to pay any more taxes off their checks. We've worked and paid our dues and more than our fair share of the "WAR EFFORT". Time for a break from taxes before we die.

We presently have someone in Birchwood and the staffing is always short. I also hear that Pinecrest is the same way. The staff is great it is not their fault there is not enough. The people who run these should sit down and think about the situation. It is about the almighty dollar! Who cares if people are not being cared for if they are making a buck. We lack in the area of Senior care! I hate to say it but what do I have to look forward to! It terrifies me. We need to act now!

When I see how much money this government can spend on other countries and not have enough to give seniors a small raise in pensions once in awhile I think it is a shame. Most have contributed all their working lives to the system. Many have not made enough to contribute for their own retirement.

Governments have failed miserably on this one and as the population ages the problem will only continue to become worse. Not every senior has a family who can care for them and so it is up to society to push for a major change. After all, we may be in that predicament some day soon.
