Charles Durrett, The Cohousing Company and Nevada City Cohousing
Older adults around the United States (and around the world) are making a strong case for why living in a high functioning community is important to them, economically, physically, and socially. Many attempts to put seniors in community have proven to work short term, but funding and employee retention continue to strain these organizations. What seniors need (and want) is to be in the driver seat, to take control of their aging scenario. What they desire is to create their own community.
So, you’ve got the dream. But where do you begin to create your own community? How do you get others to join you? Who do you work with to help you figure it out? When you’ve moved in, what then? These questions are no doubt challenging to address and, if you don’t know what you’re doing, they can lead you down a rabbit hole with no end in sight.
I often hear from people at various points in their journey, looking for the next steps. In response to these inquiries, I will be presenting Senior Cohousing: A Roadmap to Starting a New Community, with SAGE Cohousing International. This is an all-day intensive, as part of the 2017 National Cohousing Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on May 19. It will give participants a concrete roadmap to move forward on their senior cohousing community, no matter where they are in the process. Learn how to get older adults in your region organized, get an overview of how to manage finances, learn how to secure property, and much more!
If you, or anyone you know, are ready to get started on creating the community of your dreams, a community that not only looks beautiful but also feels warm and giving, don’t miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime and sign up today!
