Here's what you read on Senior Moments from H.O.M.E. in 2017.

2. Six Myths About Low-Income Seniors And Poverty

In 2014, our intern Mike Deelstra shared some of what he learned while working at H.O.M.E. For instance, he learned that according to the National Council on Aging, 23 million Americans aged 60 and up were financially insecure.

3. Millennials, Let’s Talk About Aging

She concludes that "ageist dialogue in our society just proves to us one thing: now, more than ever, it is so important to engage in intergenerational dialogue."

4. Founders Visit at Nathalie Salmon House

I wrote this post in 2014 when our founders, Michel and Lilo Salmon, visited Nathalie Salmon House for the 20th Anniversary of the building opening. Four years later, it was so exciting to see the renovations that updated the apartments and common areas of the building.

5. Leisure activities are important for seniors and here’s why

If you've ever played Bingo with residents who live with in our buildings, you will know that it's more than just a simple game of chance - it's a competition! This fall, Eftiola wrote about why that is important for seniors.
