One idea relating to creating well-being for elders (and actually ALL) in a
co-housing community involves how  to attract and afford caretakers to the
community. In planning the Eldershire community with Dr. Bill Thomas we
proposed to attract retired healthcare providers (docs, nurses, CNA's, etc)
to the community by incentivizing them through housing discounts and other
perks in return for some hours of their time. Plug in a TimeBanks component
and some of the metrics arise. This is part of the philosophy of
de-objectifying elders and plugging into all they can offer.
