  • Aging in community affords opportunities to learn new skills and to pursue our passions.

  • Active involvement in community is an important factor in emotional, mental, and physical well-being.

  • Most adults wish to stay in their homes as long as possible.

  • Members are empowered by choosing community before a crisis occurs.

  • Elders are embraced by the community reducing isolation and loneliness.

  • The accessible physical design and the layout of the cohousing community promotes frequent and spontaneous interactions.

  • “Good neighbors” offer assistance as they are willing and able.

  • Neighbors can help arrange for other services to be provided when needed.

  • There will be opportunities for economies of scale with health care providers assisting multiple individuals in one visit.

  • We welcome those who want to choose now where, and with whom, they will live.
