It is easy to be a good neighbor in senior or elder cohousing. 

Seniors in cohousing assemble information that helps them to age in style and comfort. 

Gather information and keep in a binder in the common house,maybe in the office area, so all cohousing residents can use it, if and when necessary. Whenyou are compiling the list, use the internet, phone book, and city/countyinformation. Most of all, though, askothers for their recommendations.

  • Create a resource list of senior services available in your area with telephone numbers and web addresses.
  • List home health agencies that conduct home visits for seniors with Medicare insurance and provide nurses, physical therapists, social workers, and dieticians.
  • List physicians who make house calls.
  • List local pharmacies that deliver medicines.
  • Make a list of handy men, construction companies and repair companies. This is a hard list to prepare without personal recommendations.
  • List resources in your area to transport seniors to get groceries or for other reasons.
  • List of other services such as counseling, financial counseling, and help preparing income tax. 
  • Be sure to have a list ofthe local churches, temples, and synagogues available in the area.
