Invite you to join in a series of discussions on current housing policy issues
Please join us for a discussion on Seniors' Housing
Seniors face a host of housing challenges. Many seek to age in place, but are in contexts that are economically or practically unsustainable. Few systems exist to allow property rich/cash poor seniors to transition well. Housing is less and less affordable, especially to those on fixed incomes. The aging process is rife with challenging transitions from houses to apartments, from apartments to seniors homes, from seniors homes to long term care, and the intersection of housing and health are poorly coordinated. How do we build systems that are more manageable and navigable, producing better outcomes in housing and health and quality of life?
The Panel Discussion: 3:10-3:50
Frances Morton-Chang, University of Toronto
Where does housing fit in a continuum of care and service for seniors? What are the potential benefits of integrating seniors housing into a seamless care model? What are the challenges inherent in this approach?
Joel Lexchin, York University
How do different models of ownership of long-term care homes impact the quality of care. What type of ownership produces better health and lower rates of morbidity and mortality?
Glenn Miller, Senior Associate, Canadian Urban Institute
How do seniors view the housing options available? What are the attractions to the models being considered? What are the risks that would impede participation?
Anita Dressler, Seniors Voice
Options are currently explored for addressing seniors housing issues? What are the intended benefits of those programs? What are the processes for refining those programs?
