Communities with a new age-friendly housing option.
The view of aging from illness to a stage of life.
Institutional living with HOMES.
Elders in their well deserved role as community contributors.
The state of longterm care to providing a SAFE HOME for living life.
FACTS: 79% of COVID deaths in Canada were in seniors’ long term care. 400,000 or more people currently live in long-term care across Canada 238,000 seniors in Canada live in poverty
Who is watching out for our seniors? Do we want our seniors to continue to be victims? Is “managing risk” the standard to set? Is that really okay for our mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings, friends and neighbours? We need to change our mindset and shift from housing masses, to caring for the PERSON.
Keeping it Simple.
1. ELDERHOUSE: Creating a dignified, safe home to LIVE LIFE FULLY.
2. EAST VILLAGE: Finding a way to increase housing to meet demands.
“We know that close to half of the deaths that we’re tracking are linked to long-term care facilities,” “These deaths will continue to increase, even as the epidemic growth rate slows down.”
