Program Description


"People didn't live so long before and I think that we have to help each other.
I don't think we can count on the younger generation to come in and look after us, we have to figure out how to look after ourselves a lot more."

-Silver Sage Senior Cohousing Community Resident, WHDC Video

"Cohousing gives the thing that we all look for in terms of what a neighborhood is you know ideally in our minds, the way we think of it …the way I think back to my childhood."

-Silver Sage Senior Cohousing Community Resident, WHDC Video

"A new wonderful turning of the way for society to get back to a closer connection to your neighbors to feel supported and just really have a fun time together a lot of time and much closer relationships than you have in a typical neighborhood."

-Silver Sage Senior Cohousing Community Resident, WHDC Video

"Cohousing is like creating a new family for me of friends and then some. Friends in need, friends in fun, friends when your happy, friends when your sad."

-Silver Sage Senior Cohousing Community Resident, WHDC Video

The focus at the "Silver Sage Senior Cohousing Community" is to encourage seniors to engage in a participatory community, experience self-development and growth and enjoy outdoor courtyards, patios and views.

Seniors can also take advantage of the many wellness, artistic, and fitness activities in the area including hiking, walking and biking along with visiting nearby cafes and restaurants.
