There is little to no documentation or research that has been conducted on older adults experiencing homelessness and their knowledge and/or experiences of long-term care. This research project offers insight into the knowledge of older adults residing in emergency shelter and their knowledge of long-term care in London, ON. Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with three participants over the age of fifty. While research was conducted on a small scale, initial findings offer insight into where there are gaps in knowledge about long-term care in homeless populations.''
