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.
