Discover how you can live a powerful purposeful life in cohousing!
The conference holds the keys to creating a highly functioning senior friendly cohousing community. There is something for everyone - those exploring the idea, newly forming groups or existing communities with aging members.
For newly Forming Communities:
You will learn how to get started, meet the people who can help make it happen, and discover best practices from others who have already made the journey.
For Existing & newly Forming Communities:
You will learn how to prepare your community to enable older, less mobile members to continue to live in community with you. It starts with the hard conversations that help you explore a range of aging issues such as; co-care options, designing or retro-fitting common areas, long-term care possibilities, and end of life issues.
Why Boomers are choosing cohousing
Community: Senior-friendly Cohousing creates physical and social environments in which we can flourish as we get older. To promote a long and healthy life, owners design their community to support aging in community and co-care for each other.
Sustainability: Cohousing places a high value on environmental stewardship, eco-friendly construction, living light on the land and shared resources.
Life Enhancing: Cohousing offers a feeling of security, both physical and financially. Common values usually encompass living a healthy lifestyle, respect for the environment, lifelong learning, personal growth and positive contributions to society.
