Senior Cohousing

The primary purpose of Still Green is to provide a positive alternative to the living arrangements currently available to those aged fifty-five plus. Cohousing offers particular benefits to those in the second half of life: security and mutual support amongst one’s peers, the opportunity to remain active, companionship with autonomy, a sense of belonging and cheaper living through shared costs. Cohousing for older people is common in Denmark, the Netherlands, the US and increasingly in Canada. It is incorporated as an option in the national housing policies of Denmark and the Netherlands.
