Editorial: Senior life

April 4, 2014

Mission Hill has long been a place that cares about and values its seniors. It has pioneered such initiatives as the City’s Elder Friendly Business Program. And from Mission Church to Mission Park, it is a community often led by its elders

The long-awaited affordable senior housing on Gurney Street is another great part of this tradition. Thanks to Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services for having the vision and patience to see this long project through.

Mayor Walsh’s fresh look at senior services is welcome, too. His BHA survey and Housing Task Force are bright ideas. We look forward to them bearing fruit here and around the city.
