How governments facilitate affordable retirement housing

Safe and affordable housing is fundamental to build a strong future for seniors, their families and communities. Various government programs and services are working to provide affordable retirement homes that fulfill the needs of the elderly. Supportive housing programs are designed to help people live independently in their own apartments. For many seniors who also need care and services in addition to housing, affordable senior homes offer the best option as they provide meals, laundry, housekeeping and medical aid as required. The services include personal support, essential homemaking services, and professional staff who take care of the seniors' needs.


A look at financial assistance programs for seniors

Financial assistance programs for seniors in Canada enable seniors to opt for affordable retirement homes. Throughout Canada there are government programs that offer assistance. For example, the province of Ontario has the Ontario Affordable Housing Program (AHP). Here, new homes are being created for low-income families, senior citizens, persons living with mental illness, persons with dual diagnosis, and victims of domestic violence. The Ontario government's long-term housing strategy is an attempt to make it easier for seniors to find and maintain affordable housing in this province.
