On July 19, Real Change participated in a #SeaHomeless event, along with other local media outlets including The Evergrey, soliciting questions about homelessness. One in particular caught our attention, due to the magnitude of its implications:
“Do many people who are retired or aging end up homeless? Can people afford nursing homes?”
Strap in, folks. This is about to get dark.
The short answer is yes, many people who are retired or aging do end up homeless and no, many cannot afford senior housing.
