Aging Successfully in Community!

  • Unity of the Triangle 5570 Munford Road Raleigh, NC, 27612 United States (map)

Isn't there a better place and a better way to house ourselves as we age than long-term-care facilities or home alone? We dream about living in an affordable, safe neighborhood where people know and care about each other, but does that exist?

What if...

What if you could live in a neighborhood of small privately owned homes clustered around shared green space and a common house? What if it was designed and run by you and your neighbors? What if the common house had suites for caregivers and a big kitchen and dining room for celebrations and community meals? What if this neighborhood was affordable, energy efficient and designed with the physical and social needs of seniors in mind? What if neighbors looked out for each other? 

If this vision appeals to you, please join us for a "community conversation" about aging and your options for living the rest of your life, one of them being cohousing, a new model for housing seniors with dignity, independence, safety, mutual concern, and fun. A presentation will be followed by break-out discussion groups or Q&A.  

Join us for an exploration of aging and the options available to us as we age and become less independent yet want to control our own destiny. 

This presentation will be co-facilitated by Kayelily Middleton and Dona McNeill and others who are building our own retirement community so that we can age in our one-level accessible privately-owned homes and be interdependent rather than dependent on each other. The presentation will be 30 to 40 minutes followed by Q&A and conversation. Join us!
