The Charlie & Hazel Story

  • The characters in our public awareness campaign tackle various seniors housing related issues every week - follow their story!

Public awareness of the realities experienced by seniors searching for, living in, and transitioning through seniors housing is significantly lacking.  Navigating the systems can be confusing, frustrating and even scary because of terminology, negative media images and social constructs around aging and seniors communities.

Charlie and Hazel, two fictional characters not unlike many Albertan seniors, are here to share their experiences with us.  Like our Facebook Page and follow their story, offering your own ideas and solutions to move the plot forward.  

We also have launched a blog, so that readers can access the story in its entirety.  If you are new to the story, visit our blog and scroll down to the list of archived issues at the bottom of the home page.  The first issue was published in April, 2016.

Every Friday, ASCHA will be sharing a bit of the story, and as Charlie and Hazel encounter various options and challenges, you can weigh-in on how they should proceed - either on Facebook or Wordpress.

Together, we can all learn a bit more about seniors housing experiences and develop well-informed opinions of the various options available, so we can plan our own journeys or those of our loved ones. 

Be sure to share the story in your own communities and with friends!
