Gail Weber is the President of the North Peace Senior Housing Committee. She says that while Fort St. John has a number of great things going for it, housing for seniors is presently lacking.“The city of Fort St. John has a lot going for it; a lot of things are here for people. Sadly we are very lacking in senior’s housing,” she says. “We need places where people get to the point. These are people that have paid their taxes for years, and years, and years in this community and they need somewhere where they can have safe, comfortable, affordable living, and good meals.”She says the new apartment will provide seniors with a number of rooms and will prevent seniors from being isolated from other people.- Advertisement -“This facility helps with this because it has 18 units. We have two couples in too so that’s 20 people that now have somewhere to come and socialize with our long cold winters. It’s very important that you can get out and visit with people. Being stuck in your own home when you’re elderly is not really the answer.The opening the new apartment is one of three phases Weber says. The other two will bring “Phase two will be the south end of this building formerly known as Intermediate Care and the Alzheimer’s Unit. We plan to start next month making designs for how we’re going to renovate that end. Phase three will be across the road behind Triple X. The rest of that property is our property and phase three will be an independent living apartment block in that area.”Advertisement It’s hoped that having the apartment attached to buildings one and two will provide seniors with a chance to socialize without needing to go out in the cold.
