An Inspirational Housing Solution
When the traditional housing options for aging don’t suit your taste or meet your needs, do what a group of British women did.
Imagine something different.
When they did, they came up with an innovative concept, an all-women, co-housing community in North London called Older Women’s Co-Housing (OWCH).
Their vision entails a 25-unit building where residents can help one another out and remain independent and active, despite each person’s disabilities and health challenges.
Shared spaces, such as a garden and a common room for meals and activities, bring people together to combat isolation and create a sense of community.
Even if this model isn’t your cup of tea, you can use OWCH’s story to inspire you to envision something better – and maybe unconventional – for your housing as you age.
