Presented by the CohoUS Seniors in Cohousing Committee with guest panelists from senior and multi-generational communities including PDX Commons/Portland OR, Silver Sage/Boulder CO, Quimper Village/Port Townsend, WA,  Phoenix Commons/Oakland CA, Rocky Hill Cohousing/Northampton MA, Cherry Hill Cohousing/Amherst MA.

How does getting older affect getting work done in a senior community or by aging residents in a multi-generational community? What assumptions do we have around the limitations of older residents? Is ageism working against us?  Explore the dynamics of participation in community and hear from residents of senior and multi-gen communities who will share how they handle participation and work by older members. We’ll share stories of seniors who are living in senior and multigenerational communities about how they manage work and participation.  For those in the early stages of designing your community, be sure to prioritize physical design considerations to limit maintenance work and maximize accessibility.
