Do Your Provincial Election Candidates Know About Seniors & Housing Issues?

  • The provincial election is fast approaching - you can help make seniors and housing issues a priority!

We're hoping that every single candidate is asked this question when they campaign this election season:

How will you ensure seniors thrive in your community through proper access to wellness supports?

Do your candidates have a response? Share what you are hearing in your community with us at ascha@ascha.com.  It's important that seniors and housing issues are not lost in the competing priorities this election season - these issues truly affect us all!

#ItsTime for seniors to thrive with proper and timely access to wellness supports in their community, in the setting they choose to call home.

ASCHA's Advocacy Campaigns - #itstime and #CutTheClutter

  • Join in the discussion! Create a movement! - #itstime #CutTheClutter

ASCHA has recently launched two online campaigns to raise public awareness about the issues seniors and their families face when navigating seniors housing, wellness and support options.

It's Time - #itstime

  • It's time to change how we support seniors.
  • It's time for seniors to thrive with proper and timely access to wellness supports in their community, in the setting they choose to call home.
  • It's time for us all to say "no more" to the gaps and inefficiencies.  We will all need supports in place sho that we can age with dignity.
  • We all need to accept responsibility for the way things are, regardless of political leanings.  We have all accepted the status quo for too long - it's time.

Find out more about the campaign and how you can join the conversation here.  Members can find the Campaign Toolkit in the Member Area under "Let's Advocate."

Cut The Clutter - #CutTheClutter
This summer, ASCHA surveyed over 1,000 Albertans to better understand the difficulties in navigating the seniors housing system. One of the major issues brought to light by the study was that seniors housing terminology is complicated, difficult to understand and overwhelming within the industry and government. ASCHA heard our members, and stakeholder's feedback on some of the difficulties but we did not know how difficult it was for Albertans looking for seniors housing options.

We want to #CutTheClutter to reduce and simplify the terms we use to describe seniors housing and support options in Alberta.  Find out how you can add your voice and story to the campaign here.
