Living With Friends In Retirement

Senior housingThis article examines the growing trend of senior citizens living with friends in their old age.  There are two events coming up that this article mentions.  “April 30 is National Cohousing Open House Day, when more than 90 cohousing communities around the country will welcome visitors for tours and Q&A sessions. Then on May 20 and 21, a national cohousing conference, Aging Better Together, will take place in Salt Lake City.”  Cohousing is becoming a more attractive and affordable option for senior citizens who are looking to cut down on expenses.  This is a new developing industry that will likely expand in the upcoming decades.  This article attempts to provide accurate information to dispel many of the popular misconceptions that people have about cohousing.
