Senior Cohousing a Reality
in Metro Northwest Boston!
Are you 55+ and looking for a game plan for your Third Act? Looking for a more reliable and close-at-hand social support network as you age? A more affordable, right-sized, and accessible home? Are the conventional options less than appealing?
Imagine living in a your own cottage-style home in a safe and accessible neighborhood, where neighbors know and care about each other.
Imagine a neighborhood of small, eco-friendly homes clustered along a gardened path that leads to a large common house with many amenities, including a large kitchen and a Great Room, where you and your neighbors regularly cook and eat together and hold celebrations.
Imagine having as much privacy as you want and as much community as you want--just by walking out your front door.
Imagine having a bunch of people around who are your age, who share your values and life experience, and who are eager to connect, do things, and have fun.
Imagine a place where you have an equal voice in running things and a meaningful role in the life of the community.
Imagine a place where you can be independent and in control of your life as long as possible, and still get the nurturing care we need as we age.
Who We Are
We are a group of 12 households in Metro Northwest Boston working to build New England's first senior cohousing neighborhood. We are looking for land in several towns in the Metro Northwest area. We have engaged Katie McCamant of Cohousing Solutions, Inc., the nation's preeminent cohousing development consultant, to guide us. We are learning and implementing “dynamic governance” (aka sociocracy). In July 2018 we partnered with a local developer, who is searching for land for us and who will be our project manager and take us through construction. We are looking for more members!
