Innovative. Sustainable. Home.

Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods created with a little ingenuity. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods, and share common facilities and good connections with neighbors. All in all, they stand as innovative and sustainable answers to today’s environmental and social problems. Welcome home.

If you Lived Here, You Wouldn’t Isolate

Last week, I attended the Aging Better Together Cohousing Conference in Salt Lake City. Before the meeting, my knowledge and understanding of it was vague. The concept sounded intriguing and I looked forward to learning more. My assumptions of cohousing looked a lot like a senior independent living place that used a trendy name.

The Development Side of Building Quimper Village

[Part of the Session “How to Grow a Senior Cohousing Community,” presented at the Aging Better Together Cohousing Conference, May 2016 in Salt Lake City.]

Pat and David have told you the story of how Quimper Village was imagined, initiated and marketed. David will tell you it is a whole lot easier to market the community if you have something to sell. I’m going to tell you how we simultaneously addressed the legal and financial requirements for building the physical community so he will have something to sell.

Aging Better Together Conference - What an Impact

"This is the only place this conversation, about aging with support in community, is happening. Right here." - Katie McCamant, CoHousing Solutions at the Aging Better Together Conference, May 2016

Indeed, the Aging Better Together Conference took the bull by the horns in addressing how cohousing can empower seniors to age successfully - and have fun in the process. The program unveiled ideas for reinventing aging through a community framework: how cohousing can empower older adults to self-organize into high-functioning communities of support; how the principles of aging in community can provide the blueprint for everyone to ask for, receive and give care; how senior-friendly cohousing can contribute to a sense of purpose that improves our health, happiness and creative productivity.
