The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute recently investigated issues surrounding housing of older Australians, concluding that... "... The most successful moves were by respondents who had formed 'intentional communities', either moving to a location or a retirement village where they already had friends. The importance of friends nearby was a frequent narrative. Ironically, this phenomenon can also be seen as a return to community but of a different sort. This is not the traditional family-based neighbourhood community; rather it is a set of emerging consumer classes, groups of people who find commonality in lifestyle and consumption patterns."
