Re: Do any cohousing communities require that live-in care-takers become members of their communities?

Requiring rarely leads to good results. Asking, encouraging, empathy, and 
inclusion generally work much better in creating community. Caregiving can be 
isolating and exhausting.

    There are two residents of my cohousing who each have a live-in caretaker.
    We are discussing whether we should require, or  encourage them, to become
    members of our community in order to participate in community activities
    and use community facilities.
    Do any of you have such caretakers in your community?  If so, how do you
    integrate them into community life?
    Thank you for sharing your experiences.
