The CORE Age-Friendly Group hosted their second session in the Age-Friendly Housing Series on March 23, 2022! This session provided participants with a picture of what homelessness for seniors look like, how their experience is different from non-seniors and information on work being done to address homelessness among seniors. Participants also learned what living well in community means from a housing perspective, some of the challenges and opportunities and what role community partners can play in supporting affordable housing for seniors. 

Many thanks to our session moderator: 

  • Sandy Wacker, Community Support and Age-Friendly Facilitator for the Town of Innisfail and member of the Alberta Age-Friendly Community Practice
