Co-housing Oct 2018

We may have already seen this.

The idea sounds good, I think, like dorms for seniors???

Ideally, my own bedroom, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom of course.

I do want a swimming pool LOL

Of course, speaking for myself, I hope to be in my home for as long as possible, my mother died in her co-op, with her daughters around her, she wanted to die there.

Thoughts ????

I prefer to stay in my own house actually. It is a small house. I wouldn't mind sharing it with someone when that time comes, but it is dangerous to have a room mate here. They have squatters rights. There have been a lot of stories about it. Can get ugly. Too bad there are bad apples out there to spoil it for everyone else.

LOL :lol: If we lived in "Judge Judy's America" that is something that we wouldn't have to worry about.

But you are right, squatters would be my fear, sad, just sad. :?
