To Judith and others with physical limitations considering cohousing: I cannot imagine a cohousing community that would not welcome and adapt the sharing of responsibilities to the needs and abilities of a neighbor--or several neighbors with a physical limitation. For example, being the treasurer. archiving meeting minutes (being the librarian), facilitating meetings, being the internet communications person for the community, desktop publishing signs, notice, labels, newsletters, welcoming visitors to the community for conversations in your own residence, keeping up the scrapbook, managing the meal plan, scheduling and monitoring the work of others, organizing and planning events. You can do all of these at your own pace, with whatever energy you have without getting out of your chair. And you can do physical work as well, secure in the knowledge that even if you become exhausted after washing 2 or 3 dishes, or pulling 6 weeds, or folding wontons for 5 minutes others will appreciate your contribution and will work with you to finish the job.
