The "Oakcreek Stillwater Senior Cohousing Community" Program may be ideal for senior couples wanting to downsize, and those who are looking for a more economical and engaging way to retire.
The Stillwater senior community is close to major shopping and retail outlets including: grocery stores, banks, shopping centers, schools and university, sports venues, movies, restaurants, walking/biking trails, and a health center.
