It seems that in spite of all Langford has to offer seniors, there are still some of us who are more or less on the outside looking in as it were.
While visiting family in Saskatoon this year, I was surprised to see that the city provided apartments for seniors 55-over, where no one is left out. It offers the choice to purchase or to rent with the amount based on one’s income.
These units also include most utilities and offer such things as a puzzle table, knitting room and music room, as well as a book room. These are very important as seniors, like all ages, enjoy being among peers.
So, I’m puzzled as to why Langford does not offer similar services for seniors.
Personally, I feel as well as it benefiting those of us who are residents of Langford, it would also make it more inviting for seniors of other parts of Canada or elsewhere to be able to live here.
Langford truly is a beautiful place to live. Hopefully one day it will be “senior friendly” in all ways.
