Searching for Senior Housing Options?

Are you or a senior member of your family thinking about future housing options? If you are considering anything from a supportive living residence to an apartment or strata complex that is senior-oriented, you may find the right housing option for you on Senior Living’s newly launched online senior housing directory for British Columbia.

While still in its infancy, the goal is to make this the most comprehensive, up-to-date online BC senior housing resource available.

Over the years Senior Living has stood out as one of the foremost resources for senior housing, especially for Vancouver Island, publishing a special housing edition twice a year containing the listings of all the senior residences on Vancouver Island.

This publication is used by social workers, hospitals, care workers, and various other professionals helping clients find housing alternatives.

Acting upon the request of numerous BC-wide readers for relevant housing information in their area, Senior Living has created this provincial online Senior Living Senior Housing Directory.

This directory is a valuable online resource for seniors and family members looking for housing to match their desired lifestyle or medical/mobility needs.

Types of housing include assisted living, complex care, independent or supportive living, respite, as well as a range of rental or purchasable housing options including senior-oriented apartments, condos and retirement communities.

Using automated technology, the Senior Living housing directory will be updated at least twice a year.

Residences can update their listings anytime they like through a direct link they will be provided with. But to make updating routine, twice a year every residence or housing community will be emailed an electronic form to fill out. By simply clicking the “submit” button, their listing will be instantly updated on the Senior Living website.

Not only is this site optimized for online searches, but it will be promoted in every issue of Senior Living, a marketing advantage that will keep the directory continually in the public eye.

Developing this resource directory will take time, but the Senior Living publishers are confident it will become one of the best housing sites for seniors in BC.

The directory can be found at www.FindSeniorHousing.ca or by visiting the Senior Living website at www.senior livingmag.com.

Have you considered adding Manufactured Home Parks to your "SeniorHousing" directory? My husbnd and I have lived in the Westwood Estates Manufactured Home Park in Surrey, BC for the last 34 years. We own our own home, but pay rent for the pad it sits on. This is a family run park for ages 19 and up, but most people who move into the park are middle aged couples who want to downsize to a smaller home, a smaller space they have to take care of if they are able, or have management's employees take care of it for them for a reasonable fee. I love my home and the lifestyle. We have a clubhouse and green spaces that can be used for events, either for the whole park or for private functions. There is no way that I would pick a condo or townhouse over what I have now. You are not a number on a certain floor, you can have friends or acquaintences all around you, depending on how outgoing you are. Both my husband and myself plan on staying here until we depart this world, or end up in hospital with a condition that we cannot control. Do you not feel this is a reasonable choice for seniors who want their own place with a yard and a pet, who also may want to go south for the winter and know that their home is looked after while they are gone by neighbors and management.

PS: We are both 81 years young.
