Senior Survey

Thank you for taking the time to complete the Senior Needs Survey and be a part of the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update. 

A copy of the survey can be viewed by clicking the link at the top of the page.

In April 2021, a survey was distributed to the community’s seniors to determine specific housing challenges they may face. The survey was available online, handed out with the weekly meal program through the Community Services Department and announced by the Senior Moments Newsletter, City's Facebook page, City's Instagram page, and Senior Citizens Commission. The survey asked about senior housing options, rental assistance and property maintenance. Participants were given the option of providing their contact information if they wanted to receive information about assistance programs.

A total of 70 senior residents responded to the survey. Highlights of the survey include:

• 44% of respondents visit the Senior Center and/or receive the Senior Newsletter
• 44% of respondents are interested in learning about assistance for home and property maintenance
• 36% of respondents are interested in learning about rental or homebuying options
• On scale of 1-5 (5 being highest), additional affordable senior housing in Sierra Madre received an average score of 4.13
• 30% of respondents would like information on how to provide an ADU on their property
