Present Integration Into the Social Service System
Presently 100% of our eighty four residents are assessed and then referred through hospitals and community based agencies to our residence. Keeping with the original mandate of the project the focus is on serving those defined as impoverished seniors, however, now we target senior's who have been marginalized from the health care system by psychiatric or addiction challenges. Under encouragement from the social work community and the City housing consultants we have also included some younger developmentally delayed individuals. Our findings are that a limited inter-age spread offers vitality and normalization to the community environment that encourages the life-ability of all the residents. The younger residents have the energy to help the more senior residents in their shopping, in socializing and in helping them get a coffee or in the case of our two blind residents, helping them maneuver through life.
