Membership New/Emerging Issues Submission Form

ASCHA’s advocacy efforts need to be flexible and fast moving in order to address new and/or emerging member issues in a timely manner. Members have requested a process to formally raise issues that have not been identified priorities by the membership but that could have an impact on the industry in the future. This process will allow members to formally raise new and/or emerging issues and their recommendations to ASCHA.

Overview of the Seniors Housing Industry


Housing Common Terminology

In an effort to increase understanding of the industry, the Alberta Senior Citizens’ Housing Association (ASCHA) has developed a Common Terminology document that outlines the mainstream housing types within the seniors’ housing industry.  ASCHA’s goal has always been to ensure effective communication between the residents and their families, our members, the Government of Alberta, Alberta Health Services, the public and all other stakeholders involved in seniors’ Housing in Alberta.  We are confident that by implementing the use of Common Terminology, we will arrive at a greater understanding regarding the different elements of the Continuing Care System and we will all be able to speak clearly to the public and each other with one voice.

 




“PERSON-CENTRED HOUSING” is the philosophy of honouring the individual’s needs, desires and choices to maintain and enjoy a wholesome, vibrant lifestyle in a congregate living setting.
