Across the country, senior cohousing is turning into an increasingly popular option for baby boomers and older adults. It is an emerging form of age-targeted cohousing, and will allow residents to confront the issues of aging in a new way. In these communities, a group shares a property, lives in condos or attached homes clustered together, and shares some weekly dinners, outdoor space and facilities.

Dr Anne Glass explores these and other innovative ideas about housing for seniors. She is Associate Director and Graduate Coordinator of the Institute of Gerontology in the College of Public Health at the University of Georgia. She received her MS at UGA, and her PhD at Virginia Tech, and has recently accepted a position as head of Gerontology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
