Langley senior housing survey deadline extended

Triple A Senior Housing members have been hard at work following the launch of the Langley Senior Housing Survey on Nov. 23

Triple A Senior Housing members have been hard at work following the launch of the Langley Senior Housing Survey on Nov. 23 at a workshop held at Langley Seniors Resource Centre.

About 100 older adults came together to explore the need and possible solutions to the provision of affordable, accessible and appropriate senior housing in the City and Township. With approximately 300 surveys completed so far, the Survey Committee is so encouraged by the response of the community that they have optimistically extended our deadline to February 15 and increased our target goal to 500.

Their success to date is largely due to the generous support of community groups who have assisted us to promote the survey to their members  and to  businesses who have provided us space to make the survey and information available to customers. Triple A Senior Housing appreciates as well the ‘in kind’ support of the Township and the City who have both listed the survey on their websites and provided printing services and other supports which has been a great help as this fledgling advocacy group depends on the community for financial support.

The Langley Senior Housing Survey aims to involve seniors in the Township and City of Langley in identifying their housing needs and preferences, a reflection of the group’s philosophy: “plan with seniors, not for seniors”. The more participation in the survey the more seriously the results will be taken. A report of the survey analysis will be published and made available to the public and local government.

You can help them reach their goal of 500 surveys by Feb. 15. The survey is anonymous and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Hard copies can be filled out at the Langley Senior Resource Centre, 20605 51B Avenue. Complete it online by googling “City of Langley”, “Meetings & Events”, click “read more” to go to the survey link. You can also email tripleaseniorhousing@gmail.com to obtain a hard copy of the survey or for more information about Triple A Senior Housing.
