Aging by Design
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis seeks develop a programmatic strategy that integrates seniors into existing communities by identifying the existing amenities and public services offered, understanding the gaps in services for seniors, and then filling those gaps through a new seniors congregate living facility. It also seeks to understand the impacts of retiring Baby Boomers on the seniors care industry, and to integrate new ideas about healthy living and aging-in-place. Victoria BC, which has a significant seniors population, will be the testing ground for this proposed strategy.
