I wonder if common laundry facilities present a burden to older residents who may find it difficult to carry laundry back and forth between their unit and the facility. I have a friend who had arthritis flare-ups in her legs and hip and could not easily get to the laundry facilities in her co-op building, which was not co-housing, but similar. Carrying laundry was more of a burden. She was forced to hire someone to do her laundry, which she could have done herself if she had laundry appliances in her unit. Since many people buying into co-housing are older and who may become less agile, I wonder if this is not a serious concern to potential buyers. Louise
