If you are considering your housing options as you age for yourself, your family, or your parents, then you have come to the right place. We are at a tipping point in this great discussion on aging. Everyone admits that we don’t want to waste away alone in our homes, alone in a community retirement center or just alone. There is a way to age in community with dignity, grace, friendship, support and meaning.
Women have always been the leaders, nurturers and creators of home. We bring together family and community. Today, more than ever, our role is paramount as we redefine what it means to age and what it means to live. We need new community models. Models that provide companionship and support so that we and our loved ones can grow older with grace, love and joy.
We have an extraordinary opportunity to lead the way in creating alternative community models that are based on more than just healthcare and insurance and don’t cost an entire life savings. This is not just about “Golden Girls” and it is more than shared housing. This is about being intentional in deciding for ourselves and our loved ones where we live and how we will live as we age. We invite you to join us, learn and make a positive impact through education and awareness as we develop and bring forth this new community model.
What We Do
Women For Living in Community brings together women, as natural leaders and nurtures, to create communities for growing older with grace and dignity. We also connect with existing community models and professionals to provide the necessary resources and alternatives.
Women for Living in Community provides information, education and awareness to women, community leaders, aging professionals, and healthcare providers about what it means to intentionally find or create a community for aging in grace and dignity. Our network, both online and offline, provides a framework for growing and learning.
Women for Living in Community provides the framework as an online centerpoint for women to learn about alternative models of community (cohousing, shared housing, etc.) and get guidance and support in creating those communities. We motivate and inspire women into action.
