Join us for a free information session to introduce the concept of Senior Cohousing to our community and discuss Continuing Studies' upcoming course, Aging Well in Community May 25-26.
Although the Senior Cohousing model has been tried and tested in Europe and the US, it's new to Canada. In the course, you'll learn to move beyond financial planning and how to build a social portfolio for thriving in community while aging in place. The course is largely experiential encouraging participants to help each other explore different scenarios for aging: in their current homes, retirement communities, institutions, and alternatives that foster community and privacy, mutual support and co-caring while living in a more sustainable way. One of these is Senior Cohousing – intentional neighbourhoods of accessibly designed, privately owned, smaller dwellings with shared common facilities. The course is designed to shift the whole concept of aging from one of languishing to one of flourishing to the end of one’s days.Free information session: May 4, 1-3pm at Royal Roads campus. 1:00 p.m.: information about "Aging Well in Community." 2:00 p.m.: Information about Harbourside senior cohousing in Sooke.
