Funds help Enderby age in place

Enderby Seniors Housing Society selected for new housing project by government

  • Nov. 10, 2015 9:00 a.m.

Seniors in Enderby will soon have access to more than 30 units of new affordable rental homes to allow them to age in place safely and comfortably.

Following a Request for Proposals, the B.C. government has selected the Enderby Seniors Housing Society as the successful proponent for a new housing project that will provide 36 units of seniors’ housing. The project will allow more seniors to benefit from affordable housing and live independently in the community.

“We are thrilled to once again partner with the province to create much needed housing for seniors in Enderby and area,” said Peter Gilowski, society president.

“We are eager to get started on the construction process and look forward to expanding Enderby Memorial Terrace with the completion of the second phase.”

The society is also planning to provide support services to its tenants, including meals, light housekeeping and laundry service.

The new units will be added to the existing 15-unit building the society operates, Enderby Memorial Terrace, on Granville Avenue. This expansion will bring the total number of affordable homes for seniors in the development to 51.

The province will provide the land for the expansion. BC Housing and the Society will work together to fully develop the plan for construction.

“Our seniors’ population is growing, and projects like these help seniors remain independent and active members of the community,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA.

 

“I would like to acknowledge Barry Fawcett, Peter Gilowski and the Enderby Seniors Housing Society for their work in serving the seniors in our community.”
