At 2:30 yesterday morning this idea came to me to form an advocacy that represents the needs of singles when we all retire. We don't have a voice. Have you noticed that? So, I am doing this. I don't know where it will take us but I sure plan to be in front of city councils, architect firms, developers and whatever else so we can have decent places to retire. Right now, we are all looking at landing at a nursing home because builders don't build place for people that want to get to know their neighbor.
My goal is to encourage builders to listen to our needs:
-have places built that are within walking distance of a grocery store, coffee shop, and regular commercial places.
- have places conducive to meeting others through the way a community is built for example.........common areas between homes, kitchen windows that face the front, a community area, community garage, a studio for us artists!
-AFFORDABLE places..........640 sq feet with a kitchen, living area, and a bathroom, a screened porch,......
So if you are super interested in being part of this movement.....join me for a brainstorming session and a potluck dinner. I'm making soup!
