Meeting the needs of our aging population will be one of the biggest challenges of the coming decades; especially for rural communities where amenities are far flung.
The Rural Aging in Place: Exploring alternative rural housing options for seniors in the Comox Valley Regional District workshop was hosted by the Regional District with Island Health and facilitated by BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC) on behalf of the PlanH program. It took place at the Creekside Commons Cohousing community unit. Located on the outskirts of Courtenay BC, this cohousing community was the perfect setting for discussing contemporary solutions for aging-in-place. Read about the event.
