HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE? Workshop

HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE?  

A workshop for people who are looking for alternate retirement housing and lifestyles.  

Today 1 in 10 Calgarians are over 65; by 2026, it will be 1 in 6. In the coming years, the baby boomers will be looking to sell their homes and move where they have less maintenance, and more freedom. 

There exists a plethora of seniors housing from independent living, to supportive living, assisted living, lodges, and villages. Yet many people who are looking at the options find them limited or unaffordable.

Statistics Canada reports that in 2011, the average income for a person over 65, was $32,500/year. With a rise of 2% per year, in 2013 it was $33,800/yr. Compare this to the CMHC 2013 report, which states the average monthly retirement rent in Alberta is $2,798/month (33,576/yr) and it is easy to see that there are some gaps.  

In the workshop, alternatives are presented and the attendees explore their own situations and preferences, and begin germinating ideas for themselves and their communities.
