Team to propose solutions to N.B. nursing home shortage Global News: Wednesday, January 26, 2011

A team of experts looking into future housing options for seniors has another solution. “We really don’t need to have people in nursing homes until nothing else will work,” says Dr. Kathleen Cruttenden.

Cruttenden says that policy makers need to consider options that would help seniors stay in their homes, such as co-housing, co-operative housing, or innovative building design.

The Atlantic Seniors Housing Research Alliance will present their findings at Fredericton City Hall on Thursday.
