RECORDINGS - Age-Friendly Housing Series – From Homelessness to Continuing Care
June 22, 2022
Description / Summary
"The housing conditions of older people are often linked to their quality of life and whether they are able to age independently and actively in their community. Appropriate housing design and its proximity to community and social services allow older residents to live comfortably and safely, while housing affordability gives them peace of mind."
- The World Health Organization, Age-Friendly World
