Caregivers Finally Noticed Barely, But It's a Start

Okay, this is not earth-shaking but it's interesting. The Canadian Conservative government of Mr. Stephen Harper has made an inroad in a token way, of recognizing that our population is aging and that it is those who are one generation younger that end up take care of the elderly. And in the process, the breakthrough was applied to caregivers of children and spouses who need care as well.

Not a big move, but one in the right direction. Haven't got all the details yet, but it appears you get a "tax-credit" if you qualify. And surprisingly enough, the more you make the better your credit. But let's wait for the details.

The important thing is that "caregivers" have made it on the map. As Carol Goar says, "For that, Harper deserves thanks."
