Looking into the future of seniors’ housing in Chestermere

Seniors housing survey

Independent living? Assisted living? What does seniors’ housing options look like in Chestermere? This is what the City is trying to find out. 

“Seniors’ housing in Chestermere is a high priority item in our Strategic Plan,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “In last year’s election, we heard that this is an important issue for the community.  

To better understand what the community needs, the City is looking to gather information from residents regarding their input around the potential for future seniors’ housing in Chestermere. The survey aims to identify types of housing that will be most appropriate and create a better scope of seniors’ needs in the community.

A survey conducted by Objective Research and Evaluation Inc. will be open to seniors in Chestermere and area, as well as professionals working with seniors. The survey will be available online and in person at City Hall and the Library from September 21 to October 15. 

The City is also working alongside the Active Group for Aging in Place (AGAP) to conduct the survey. This group consists of local community members, seniors and seniors’ organizations.

“We want to ensure that we are listening to seniors and identifying the best possible options for seniors’ housing in Chestermere,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We appreciate your participation in this important research.”

The results of the survey will be carefully reviewed and brought forward to Council. There will be a presentation of the survey results at the Seniors Housing Roundtable on October 29 from 6-9 p.m. at Lakeside Greens Golf Course. Seniors and other key stakeholders will come together to move the conversation around seniors’ housing in Chestermere forward. All are welcome to attend; stay tuned for more details.

For more information and to take the survey please visit chestermere.ca/seniors.
