Elder Communes, A Growing Trend
"Opting for old age on their own terms, [12 old friends] were starting a new chapter in their lives as residents of Glacier Circle, the country's first self-planned housing development for the elderly -- a community they had conceived and designed themselves, right down to its purple gutters.
Over the past five years, the residents of Glacier Circle have found and bought land together, hired an architect together, ironed out insurance together, lobbied for a zoning change together and existentially probed togetherness together."
In 82 intergenerational communities across the U.S., the elderly are facing old age on their own terms.
