It’s been happening to more and more area seniors.

“They’ve been (living) in a location for a long time, and then they have to move because of the stairs, other medical reasons, etc.,” said Joy Quail, community development coordinator with the Salvation Army Dunnville Community and Family Services.

If they end up moving to a place with higher housing costs than what they were paying before, “that fixed income isn’t going to go far enough.”
