Phyllis Coates can tell horror stories about looking through the ads for a room to rent. Some of the homes she visited appeared not to have been cleaned in years, and a few of her prospective roommates made it clear they were interested in the 66-year-old Coates only as a nursemaid.

Demand for low-cost senior-citizen housing in high-rent Orange County is so great that the current waiting list for county rental assistance to the elderly is 5 to 10 years; no new names are currently being accepted for the waiting list and no new federally funded apartment projects have been planned in the county for low-income seniors.

"I took him around to some, but unfortunately it was right after lunch and (the residents) were all falling asleep," his daughter-in-law, Kay Hedden, said. "He said they made him feel old."

Huntington Beach resident Julia Latenche makes cleaning her living room floor an important weekly ritual, moving rhythmically from one white square tile to another with a hand brush, a toothbrush and a little cup holding a mixture of soap, water and bleach. Latenche, 40, lives in a modest two-bedroom apartment but rents only a small portion of the living room floor, where she sleeps and for which she pays $240 a month. Nine people divide up the apartment, none able to afford the $740 total rent.
