Co-care

Senior cohousing helps people live independently in their own homes in part through a practice of co-care.

Co-care is a grassroots model of neighbourly mutual support that can help reduce social isolation and promote positive, active aging.

It encourages independence through awareness that we are all interdependent.

In a cohousing community, giving and receiving co-care is entirely voluntary. We may choose to support each other through such activities as doing errands, driving, cooking, or going for a walk with our neighbour. We believe that being good neighbours helps us age well in community and have fun doing it.
