MAKING IT HAPPEN! A workshop for those interested in learning how to start, facilitate and develop a senior cohousing community.  
The workshop is intended for anyone who is excited about creating a senior cohousing community to live in or for others, and wants to take a leadership role. This workshop and the discussions bring more seniors into cohousing than any other means.
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Five days of instruction 
from Chuck Durrett, Jim Leach, Katie McCamant and others. The workshop is highly experiential. Mornings will be spent exploring many of the issues faced by seniors who are contemplating the life changes that come with aging — and doing so in a healthy, supportive, safe and comfortable environment (i.e. aging successfully). Afternoons will be spent on development projects. Topics include:

  • aging in community
  • creating a supportive environment through cooperation
  • combining the skills and talents of individuals
  • co-care and assistance in community
  • the risks and rewards of cohousing, and
  • the logistics of developing a senior cohousing (group formation, finding a site, financing, and the development timeline).
