Interesting question. It sounds like a good idea, but I do not have any direct experience with this. Are folks who are interested in senior cohousing aware of the March conference in Chicago? It is called "Let's re-think aging" and is a joint conference of the American Society on Aging and the National Council on Aging. Here is a link, specifically to the track on housing that includes several on cohousing. http://www.agingconference.org/asav2/conf/jc/jc07/confSearch.cfm?RequestTime out=3000&EventID=14204&do=search Perhaps this type of discussion will be had at the conference...

From what we have seen, encouraging elderly people to attend common meals is a strategy that is good for their mental and physical well being. (The Kendal Retirement Communities offer but one example). We imagine building the cost of one meal per day into our monthly fee. While one can't "insist" on eating together, knowing that you have already paid for the meal is a strong incentive in attend. Has anyone out there had experience sharing the cost of a cook to help coordinate and oversee the work of members? Thanks.
