While safe, secure and affordable housing is vital for everyone, regardless of age, our numbers indicate that seniors, as a group, are facing significant struggles accessing and retaining safe, secure, affordable housing. Such struggles also highlight what many seniors tell us, which is that existing housing supports are not sufficient to meet their needs in the face of rising rent, utility and food costs. Additionally, seniors struggling to age in place face insufficient home supports, as well as service providers’ lack of resources and capacity to meet the needs of an ageing population.
