What you should know about senior homelessness

Every person deserves to enjoy their retirement in a safe and comfortable home. Despite this, many Canadian seniors are struggling to find stable housing as the aging population increases.

According to a study released by Statistics Canada in September 2015, those aged 65 and older make up 16.1 per cent of the country. For the first time ever, this number exceeds the amount of those aged 15 and younger.
The City of London’s most recent census revealed that from 2006 to 2011 the population aged 65 and older grew by 11 per cent, and the number of those aged 80 and older grew by 12.5 per cent. In keeping with the provincial data, municipal projections predicted that the senior population would outweigh the 15 and under age group by 2016.

These numbers have impacted Canada’s health and pension systems, posing seniors with the challenge of obtaining adequate housing that is both affordable and accommodating to their physical needs.
While there is no single pathway to homelessness for any demographic, factors contributing to senior homelessness are largely related to declining health and diminishing financial conditions caused by insufficient pensions and training for jobs that could lead to supplementary income. Additional vulnerabilities are created by poor mental health, decreasing social connections and family networks, lower levels of education, previous incarceration, alcoholism, previous homelessness and victimization, and traumatic life changes.

The transiency of those facing chronic and episodic homelessness makes it difficult for Statistics Canada to collect comprehensive data, but the Homeless Hub research centre was able to report that 1.7 per cent of frequent shelter users are aged 65 and older, and went on to suggest that the low number could be explained by their higher mortality rates.
More findings taken from the National Shelter Survey showed that when compared to younger adults, older adults tend to remain in shelters for longer periods of time before moving into housing.
One of the greatest challenges faced by older adults is accessing health and social services. Few shelters in Canada offer the resources or expertise required to properly care for a geriatric client, and studies have shown there is a lack of programming designed to connect seniors to the government assistance to which they are entitled. Oftentimes homeless seniors experience discrimination or neglect in their attempts to acquire the help they need.
Overall, the lack of resources has generated a gap in communication between elderly homeless persons and the communities they inhabit. While services are in place to assist other prominent at-risk groups, homeless seniors remain underrepresented – a problem that only worsens as the population rapidly grows. Senior homelessness will not dissipate on its own, but is rather an issue that requires more awareness and support from a public that will inevitably be met with similar circumstances once they also reach the age of retirement.
