Residents are being asked for feedback on the County of Renfrew’s proposed Seniors Housing Strategy.
Last year, consulting firm Re/fact Consulting was asked to develop a strategy for the area to help the county make decisions and policies for seniors’ housing options.
A comprehensive review included examining services such as assisted living, supportive housing, Long-Term Care/Community Paramedic Partnership in the client’s home, and additional Long-Term Care Beds.
The consulting team reached out to community stakeholders and has also sought their feedback on the draft strategy.
Warden Debbie Robinson says it’s now time to get feedback from the community and in particular, seniors themselves.
“We look forward to working with local municipalities, housing providers, many community stakeholders and agencies to bring forward a strategy that will give insight into this important issue,” she said.

The draft report is expected to be presented to the Health and Social Services Committees and County Council in February.
