(510)[masked]I hope you've all had a great summer! We haven't been very active in this MeetUp lately, but we're working on reconnecting with it to share all the fun stuff going on. There will be some overlap with East Bay Cohousing events, but some aging-related events will be featured here in more detail or not listed there at all. I hope to see some of you tomorrow evening -- Raines
will hold a presentation and book signing for his latest book, The Senior Cohousing Handbook: A Community Approach to Independent Living
, a comprehensive guide to creating and living in cohousing. It outlines how anyone 50+ can custom-build their neighborhood
to fit their needs and aspirations. This is housing organized by the residents, not for them, with an emphasis on independence and autonomy. The event will include a slide show
to illustrate senior cohousing and a presentation that will be the perfect chance to find out more about living in a more supportive living environment.
The fastest growing segment of the housing industry is 50+ with over 10,000 Americans turning 50 every single day. This growing population of baby boomers seeks solutions that have more to do with continuing a vibrant, active life than settling in for the duration.
Charles Durrett?s new book, The Senior Cohousing Handbook is a comprehensive Senior Cohousing guide to joining or creating a cohousing community. A leading cohousing architect, he has won numerous awards, including the United Nations World Habitat Award and the Best of 50+ Housing Award (National Home Builders Assoc. 2008). Durrett is credited with coining the term ?cohousing? and together with wife and professional partner, Kathryn McCamant, introduced cohousing projects to America.
