Any new seniors facilities that are being built we should automatically advocate for dual use to prevent isolation and promote inter-generational support/learning.

This is an inspiring idea. If a suitable seniors residents could be identified in the Capital Regional District with space for a daycare, funds could be raised to outfit the vacant space for this purpose.
