Vancouver Housing Authority owns and manages seven senior housing properties throughout Clark County.
Who can live in senior housing?
To qualify for senior housing the head of household, spouse, or co-head must be at least 62 years of age, and you must meet income guidelines. Rent for these properties is based on 30% of adjusted household income.
What is it like living in senior housing?
VHA’s senior housing properties are independent living, one-bedroom apartment complexes. Residents come and go as they please, prepare their own meals within their own living spaces, and go shopping or engage in hobbies as they choose. Each of the properties has common areas such as exercise rooms, computer rooms, and community rooms for special events or celebrations on holidays. These shared spaces give residents an opportunity to participate in activities.
Unlike Assisted Living housing, senior housing properties do not provide health care or help with activities of daily living such as medication, bathing, eating, dressing, and more. If residents need any assistance with activities of daily living, they can get third-party home health care services. The properties are assigned Elderly/Disabled Service Coordinators who can provide referrals to resources.
Are there resident services for seniors?
Yes! VHA resident services include service coordinators for seniors.
