We take a look inside the growing movement of naturally occurring retirement communities, or NORCs. Christine McMillan, 91, tells us about how she started the Oasis Senior Supportive Living program in Kingston, Ont. And we speak with Catherine Donnelly, director of the Health Services and Policy Research Institute at Queen's University, and Catherine Bigonnesse, a postdoctoral fellow at the Research Centre on Aging at the Université de Moncton, about how to support seniors who want to age in place.
