Age-Friendly Housing Definitions - ​Checklist

85% live in private dwellings while 8% live in collective dwellings. Meeting this demand will require adaptations to existing housing, home maintenance and support services (including personal care), friends and neighbours and increased reliance on both government and private service providers. This also means providing a continuum of housing choices in terms of location, forms of housing, types of tenure, living arrangements and range of support services that would allow older adults to continue to live independently and participate in their community for as long as possible.
