Senior Cohousing: Starting a new community in your city or town (SAGE Cohousing International)

Presented by SAGE Cohousing International

Session Description

Senior Cohousing fulfills the needs of our aging population better than any other option. But how can one person—even a small group—turn their dreams into reality? During this session, you will receive expert advice and learn proven techniques to help you get a senior cohousing community started in your city or town. You will meet others who have successfully created their own communities and realize that if they can do it you can do it too. We will examine the social and economic benefits of aging together, but mostly, we will study the challenges most new groups encounter; securing a site, building a committed core group, and zoning and planning. Participants will come away from this presentation with a clear idea of the key first steps to getting going.
