Re: “age-restricted” ... I don’t even understand how that came up.

I simply meant we would like to look at cohousing (which is mixed age, 
typically) as an option to senior retirement communities.

I was hoping for some personal and positive experiences or suggestions, but it 
appears people here would rather just pick apart my question. My family and I 
are going through a painful, difficult time, so that is not helpful.

is age restricted, if it is not then it is against the fair housing
