Aging in Cohousing

Last night 15 adults from Rocky Hill Cohousing, a seven-year old
inter-generational community in Northampton, MA, met to begin a conversation
on aging.   The group consisted of our three retired couples and singles and
couples mostly on the other side of 50.   We raised a broad range of
subjects and found the discussion meaningful and fruitful.   We plan to
continue our conversation.

One topic was possible structures to put in place to aid aging folks who
need some forms of assistance.   As a caring community, we want to be able
to help our neighbors in need, at least to the extent we are able.  We
wondered if other cohousing communities had established such structures, or
related policies, procedures, etc.?    We would be grateful to hear any
cohousing examples addressing the needs of aging folks in a concrete way and
what you have done.     Thank you.
