    You won’t simply wake up in the morning and realize that you’re getting old and weak. Aging process begins, believe it or not, when you’re approximately 25 years old. In medical science people are considered old when they turn 70: when a person passes this point, mental degradation becomes inevitable. However, mental disorders related to age may develop much earlier, even if you’re 45 or 35.

    There are many comments out there about available funding for First Nation Citizens, our poeple continue suffering as the funding ‘apparently available’ never reaches at the level of First Nation Citizens.
    And First Nation leaving off-reserve ARE NOT receiving support.

    There is a minor correction to make: Doug Kelly is the Chair of the First Nations Health Council (FNHC), which is a different entity from the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). FNHC is comprised of the political leadership (Chiefs) who are active on health governance, and they are a sister organization to FNHA, which is a service provision and delivery organization. FNHA has a CEO and a Board of Directors at its helm.

    Very nice to see FNHMA included in this article. Their work is hugely important.
