Senior Cohousing Provides Community Assistance with Living

Instead of assisted living, or managing a large home without help, cohousing creates a small neighborhood of independent individuals who all do what they are able in order to maintain a mutually beneficial and enjoyable community.

Common work days like this one at Bellingham Cohousing take care of outdoor maintenance. Commonly, people are obligated to 20-30 hours per year to maintain common real estate. Older residents often help shop, make snacks, or do related administration, but never underestimate their work ethic.
