IGA017: Co-housing Reinvents Community to Support Older Citizens

Summary:

What is co-housing? Wikipedia defines this as an "intentional community clustered around shared space". But that barely scratches the surface of the possibilities inherent in the concept. Today's guest, Cindy Turnquist, and Lee discuss this intriguing community concept and how it addresses the growing need for seniors to age-in-community. Cindy shares her experience and knowledge to educate us about the many aspects of co-housing that will most certainly appeal to a large portion of our older population.
