Home » Seniors Housing Definitions
There are many options for seniors housing ranging from independent living to assisted living. The Housing Directory will not include any Long Term Care Facilities, such as nursing homes and auxiliary hospitals, where the admission of residents must be approved by the Single Point of Entry process.

New industry definitions publication coming soon!

ASCHA is currently working on an interdisiplinary, interministerial, and inclusive document defining seniors housing, living, and service options.

There are many different and (and sometimes conflicting) definitions within the seniors living industry. This document will outline definitions used in Alberta and make apparent where problems and conflicts exist.

ASCHA is committed to enhancing communication with government and between stakeholders. Albertans cannot be expected to navigate and understand seniors living options when communication at policy levels is impaired by language discrepancies.

Check back in the coming weeks for this document!
