Infographics: Economic insecurity touches seniors' lives in profound ways

Our photo essay, Economic insecurity touches seniors’ lives in profound ways (published alongside the study, Poverty and Inequality Among British Columbia’s Seniors) describes the lived experiences of three senior women living in economic insecurity in BC. The images and stories of these women paint a sobering picture of what life is like when the hardships of a low income are combined with the many overlapping challenges of aging—chronic disease, reduced mobility, declining health and the loss of spousal and community support.
