INTERVIEW
The market is full of products that claim to make our skin younger and steal some years of our appearance, showing beautiful photos of models with glowing skin. But the reality is far from those magical results advertised, isn’t it? I believe we should all embrace our age and be proud of time marks: they are earned! Every smile, tear… every emotion, that built our face and made it unique, is ours! We don’t have to get rid of them.
However, there’s nothing wrong with using tricks to feel good about ourselves and cover some visible aging signs. So let's learn a few of those tricks!

March 24th, World Tuberculosis Day!
Despite advances in medicine and public health, tuberculosis remains a very real concern not only globally but also in Canada, and continues to affect individuals, families and communities. For most Canadians, the risk of developing tuberculosis is very low. However, there are about 1,600 new cases of tuberculosis reported in Canada every year, so it is important to know the symptoms - follow the link: https://goo.gl/mX0Eto #EndTB

The importance of oral health is commonly overlooked. Oral health is much more than having a great smile! It’s in the mouth that the digestive process starts and we depend on a healthy mouth to speak, smile, smell, taste, touch, chew, swallow and demonstrate a range of emotions with confidence and without pain, discomfort and disease. Regardless of your age – 5, 15, 25, 65 or 85 years – a good oral health greatly impacts your overall health and well-being.

SeniorsZen.com Announces 2017 Scholarship Winner
We are excited to announce that Rod Vafaei became the winner of SeniorsZen 2017 Scholarship Award!
This was an extraordinary year - we received over 150 submissions! The decision to select the winner did not come easy as there were so many outstanding essays and infographics on wide range of topics. We thank all applicants for participating!
In his award-winner essay, “The Missing Ingredient”, Rod tells us the story of his meetings with 'Toni', a resident of a senior home, as he reflects over the importance of the family presence in the life of an elderly person. " So as I reflected on Toni’s departure, and as I looked towards my own parents approaching retirement, I began to feel that maybe new living models alone may not give us the answer we are looking for. Maybe, in addition, we need a shift in culture and frame of thought that will allow a response to the quiet cries of our seniors for their family’s time and attention."

#InternationalWomensDay
"Some days ago, amongst many quotes I come across in the social media, one caught my attention in particular: “When you don't dress like everybody else, you don't have to think like everybody else.” In the background, was an image of a white haired lady - beautifully done hair, I should emphasize - with bright red lipstick, an extravagant outfit and big, I mean BIG accessories. Everything screamed personality and I had to know who she was!" #WomensDay #March8
