Dear Friends of the HOPE Foundation,
It is with sadness that we inform you of the cancellation of the advertised event we were to hold at Danish House on Sunday September 19th.
We had planned an afternoon coffee date with dance, song and an interesting presentation from our HOPE Scholar, Alison Talmage. All this will have to wait until we are out of lockdown.
Keeping the rules of lockdown is important but so is keeping well and mentally balanced, as the impact of reduced social contact is felt.
In the meantime, keep safe, stay strong, share with others on the phone.
We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in the future when our world is safer.
With kind wishes,
Karen Andersen Yates

Older Kiwis are resilient – but we all need to support the vaccine
Welcome to the HOPE Foundation newsletter. I hope you enjoy reading about our Scholars’ work.
While they are all passionate and enthusiastic about their re- search, I particularly like the work of Camille Prigent, who has found a positive aspect to the Covid Pandemic – see below. Older people are resilient and adaptable, often using technology to keep in touch.
We are fortunate this year, due to the generosity of our sponsors and the Friends’ of HOPE, to once again be able to offer 12 University scholarships for research into ageing related study.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays.
What a year 2020 has been! Covid 19 has had an impact on everyone. There has been a massive escalation in our knowledge about this virus and I think it is pertinent to stop and think about how well trained researchers and scientists have worked together to make the progress to date.

My House, Our House, Their House: A Case Study of Shared Social Housing for Older Women.
Robyn Barry PhD.
In 2013, a Community Housing Provider opened two specifically designed five bedroom houses for older women to share. The women rent their own bedroom, with an ensuite and deck, and manage the other communal spaces with each other. There was, and still is, widespread interest in what has been hailed as an innovative way of accommodating the increasing number of older renters for societies that are facing significant challenges with their ageing populations, loneliness and housing.
