Also...some years ago a developer in Victoria BC was developing what he called "Careaminiums" which amounted to elder cohousing with staff and meals built into the HOA fees. Interesting idea. I don't know if he ever went very far with the concept after his first project.
Anyone from Victoria reading this who might know more? Chris On Feb 10, 2006, at 2:09 PM, Fred H Olson wrote:

He will be speaking in Minneapolis and visiting Monterey cohousing next week. Does anyone know enough about "Eldershire" to compare it to cohousing? I suspect it is more "developer-led" than cohousing developments tend to be. I wonder about the implications for the nature of the community. Note that his ideas are specifically intergenerational but"senior rich" which I guess is unlike senior cohousing and maybe more liketraditional cohousing (which is my preference).
