I'm curious if any communities have taken on discussions and even created new value statements/policies/practices to address aging in place - especially in terms of social connections and support. Physical accessibility is much easier to address compared to the more nebulous question of how we support and involve our aging members compared with the attention we give to support children and parents in cohousing. The latter seems to be much more prevalent as I look at the websites of many communities. Very little is mentioned about explicit support and encouragement for older members.

Your experience(s) will be shared at the Northeast Cohousing Conference in Cambridge at the end of the month. Feel free to contact me directly or share on this listserv.
