Often the calls are urgent, more than 10% are relating to seniors who are currently homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Finding appropriate housing takes time and there are no emergency shelters specifically for older adults.
Our experienced team of intake and outreach workers are involved in supporting older adults (60+) with housing issues throughout the Metro Vancouver, excluding the Downtown Eastside. Assignment of an outreach worker will be determined based on case by case due to the limited capacity
Each older adult's situation is assessed on an individual basis. An outreach worker meets with the older adult either at the Seniors Services office or, if the senior is unable to come to the office, in their current home. In each situation the outreach worker meets one on one with the older adult to ensure they have access to safe housing. This one on one approach also allows the outreach workers to find out if the senior has health, finance, or other concerns.
