Affordable housing in our area is lacking. Middle class residents need access to affordable housing in the Tompkins County area.
Senior housing is in high demand in Tompkins County and very low supply. Typically, seniors can be on wait lists for a year or more.
There are no options in Tompkins county for Medicaid assisted living. This option would allow seniors to live as independently as possible in a senior apartment with the option of healthcare services as needed.
I am working with Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services, Better Housing for Tompkins County, LifeLong, Longview and other Senior Housing Companies to devise creative ways to create affordable housing options and more senior housing in our area.
