We are a group of 26 women, almost all of whom previously lived alone. We come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures and our ages range from early 50's to late 80's. Although we are all very different and have our own particular interests, family connections, work – some of us are still working – or health difficulties or disabilities, what we all share is a determination to stay as self-dependent and active as we can as we get older.

We see cohousing as a way of living as co-operative, friendly neighbours.

Our community is actively managed by us, its residents. Everyone has opportunities to share in the life of the group and contribute in whatever way she can.
