Locating a senior or elder cohousing community is not easy at this time.
Shining the lights on senior cohousing will make it easier to find a community near you in the future.
The idea of senior cohousing is to recreate a time when neighbors sharedtheir happy and sad times, meals, and leisure activities. A time when Americanslooked to their neighborhoods for companions and helping hands.
It is an idea whose time has come–again…
If you agree, you probably want to buy a retirement home in a senior cohousing community?
Unfortunately, that is easier said than done.
One reason is there are not many actual senior cohousing projectsto join at this time.
They are new to America, although there are many in Europe, particularlyin Denmark where cohousing originated.
There are multiple start-up groups who hope to build senior cohousing "some day."Unfortunately, it seems to be rare for a cohousing group to reach the buildingstage. One wonders if the journey becomes more important than the destinationfor some groups.
Seniors have moved in ElderSpirit into cohousing at Abingdon, VA and Glacier Circle in Davis,CA.
