What is Aging in Community?

NC State University OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) 


We are all aging, like it or not! Have you made plans for the rest of your life? (This class is not about making a will or other legal arrangements--it is about your day to day quality of life.) This lecture will allow us to look realistically at the aging process and explore the current options we have in the 21st century. A new concept of aging in community called "Cohousing" is sweeping the US. It is about recreating the small-town neighborhood where everyone knows and cares for everyone and we share some common space. Studies show that people who live in a close-knit community of friends and neighbors can stay at home many years longer than the typical American who becomes isolated during the aging process.
