|Abstract:||<p>As Canada's population ages, researchers have been increasingly concerned with issues related to housing the elderly. This paper addresses the question of " housing preferences of the elderly" in Midland, Ontario and investigates reasons for these preferences.</p> <p>The results of this research indicate that the elderly preferred accommodations that offered them independence, privacy, and access to health care.</p> <p>Through cross tabulations , and chi-square analysis the independent variables that influenced the elderly's housing preferences were identified. These variables were present dwelling, marital status, income, age, and use of limited services.</p> <p>These findings provide us with a better understanding of the elderly's housing needs and preferences and will enable us to better facilitate the elderly's housing needs.</p>|
