Senior Cohousing: A Progressive and Creative Housing Model

PASADENA, Calif. – Cohousing, a unique housing model that began in Denmark and is growing in the U.S. brings adults ages 50+ together to imagine and design their own small communities. The model has surged in recent years as more and more baby boomers retire and look to downsize to a more community-oriented and environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

Alexandria Levitt, Senior Housing Specialist and Gerontologist, USC MS 2011, will discuss Senior Cohousing on Thursday, Jan. 24, 7 p.m. at Pasadena Central Library’s Donald Wright Auditorium, 285 E. Walnut St.  Learn about what’s involved, successful communities already created, and how to make it happen here.  For more information, contact Christine Reeder at (626) 744-7076 or creeder@cityofpasadena.net.
