We Get Letters: Support for the Affinity Project

Published on Monday, November 21, 2022 | 5:00 am

I am the Executive Director of the Pasadena Senior Center. I am writing in support of the

Affinity Project at 465-577 S. Arroyo Parkway.

Pasadena has a large population of older adults who are living alone and want/need to transition to assisted living and memory care facilities.

Many are on a waiting list that includes 80 people in waiting. Many wait so long they are forced to move out of area, even when they love living in Pasadena.

The Affinity Project will offer much needed senior housing and memory care. The project will be located in the middle of the town near family, friends, health care and public transportation, making it very convenient.

I truly believe the Affinity Project will have a significant impact on the quality of life for older adults and their families, which is why I support the project.
