Discussion Summary

Explorer Eileen tells of lessons learned when placing a relative in assisted living, concerned that it might not have been the best setting for her. Members ask questions and comment about other models of housing for older adults, including the following:

  • Co-housing
  • The Village Movement
  • Cooperative apartment buildings
  • Home sharing and intergenerational living
  • 'Cheesecake' - a volunteer common living community

The consensus among the group is that one type does not suit the tastes or meet the needs of everyone.
