Senior Cohousing a Reality
in Metro Northwest Boston!
Breaking News! On July 15, 2019, we started negotiating a Purchase and Sale Agreement on a property in Littleton, Massachusetts! Stay tuned!
Are you 55+ and looking for a game plan for your 3rd Act? Do you want to age in place, but need a more affordable and appropriate home? Do you have the kind of social support you need to age successfully in place?
Imagine…Living in your own privately owned, right-sized, and energy-efficient home in a safe and accessible neighborhood. A place where your neighbors are active seniors like yourself, peers who share your values and life experience, people who have set an intention to be good neighbors and look out for each other. And are eager to connect, do things, and have fun!
Imagine living in a neighborhood…
Where the homes face onto a green and flowering commons with walking paths leading to the hub of the community: a large common house with extensive amenities, where you and your neighbors regularly cook and eat together, meet for activities, and hold celebrations.
Where you have as much privacy as you want, and as much community just by walking out your front door.
Where you and your neighbors make the decisions about how things are run, where you have a sense of purpose and a meaningful role in the life of the community, where you can be independent and in control of your life as long as possible.
Who We Are
Middlesex Senior Cohousing is a group of 16 households in Metro Northwest Boston working to build New England's first senior cohousing neighborhood.
In 2017 we have engaged the nation’s preeminent cohousing development consultant, Katie McCamant of Cohousing Solutions, Inc., to guide us. We are partnered with a local developer who has been searching for land for us and who will be our project manager and take us through construction. We are implementing sociocracy as our system of governance. And even though we are not yet co-located, we are having a wonderful time working and playing together!
