RECORDINGS - Age-Friendly Housing Series – From Homelessness to Continuing Care

resource image

"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

Through this five-part series, the Alberta Age-Friendly Community of Practice explored the range of seniors housing from homelessness to continuing care from Feb. 23-June 22, 2022

The goals for this series were to:

  • Help to foster a shared understanding of the housing needs of seniors.
  • Identify enablers to support seniors to live independently.
  • Encourage and facilitate a variety of age-friendly housing options for seniors.

You might be interested in watching the recordings of this series if you are a senior serving organization, housing provider, municipality, developer or if you are interested in making housing more age-friendly. 

About the host: Age-friendly communities promote healthy and active aging. The CORE Age-Friendly Groups share information, resources and promising practices for creating age-friendly environments and help communities that are pursuing age-friendliness to connect and support each other.
