Imagine an innovative elder culture that approaches looming issues in sustainability and health care in an entirely new way. Our aim is to provide the mutual support to flourish, living in an optimal range of human functioning for the rest of our lives. Canadian Senior Cohousing combines the well-established international model of senior cohousing with new ideas for active aging here in Canada.
Coming soon: Spring 2016. Canadian Senior Cohousing society (CSC) and the Community Social Planning Council (CSPC) will launch their “How to Guide” on innovations in seniors housing. The project is funded by the Real Estate Foundation of BC and the CSPC to research innovative models of housing and community living in Canada and elsewhere and apply best practices to different forms of seniors housing that enable people to age healthily in community. For more information about this project, please visit the CSPC webpage Innovation in Seniors Housing
