“We’re talking about rethinking, redefining one-third of adult life! The greatest achievement in the history of humankind — and all we can is that it’s going to make Medicare go broke? Why don’t we take that one-third and create new stories, new rituals, new mythologies for people as they age?” https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/05/20/can-we-live-longer-but-stay-younger

Examples of items recently shared by neighbors at Phoenix Commons include: umbrellas, batteries, books, dogs, movies, kitchen gadgets, sweatshirts, rides, and yes, even the occasional cup of sugar! #cohousing #WeLoveToShare https://www.yesmagazine.org/issues/dirt/community-relationships-borrowing-from-neighbors-strengthens-democracy-20190318

Our first Saturday brunch was a huge success. Great company and wonderful food.

Supportive friendly neighbors right outside your door? Check. Sharing of resources, knowledge, and responsibilities? Check. All the community you want with all the privacy you need? Check. For aging boomers who understand that personal independence can be maximized through social interdependence, senior cohousing communities are an extremely attractive option.
Phoenix Commons celebrated Spring with a delicious potluck on our outdoor patio. As usual, the yummy food, the delightful company, the fresh flowers and the perfect weather provided for another exciting event.
Join us for a dinner or party in our common areas and you’ll quickly realize that cohousing is NOT just for hippies! PS. But hippies are welcome here too — we are just a few miles away from Berkeley after all! #cohousing #someofusarehippies
