We are beginning this conversation in our community this weekend. We have discovered that it is important in order to engage all of our community to frame it as a conversation about caring rather than aging as there are many opportunities for caring that are not age related such as births, illness/surgery/injury, birth/adoption, potential owners who come with caring needs, expanding one's family with individuals who need caring, etc. Our first step is to explore these two questions: if, when and how do you expect care from your community (different from friends and family) and if, when and how are you willing to help your community care for a member of the community. If a group wants to focus on caring during aging then that may be the direction we pursue. There are some great materials available from the coho website from last year's session on aging in cohousing. We are eager to learn from the journeys of other communities.
