Coffee and a chat about seniors’ cohousing

An info session over coffee is set for Dec. 15 at the Yarrow Ecovillage on the topic of Elderberry Commons

Loneliness is considered one of the greatest afflictions of modern times.

In that light, what does it mean to age well in place?

An information session is set for Dec. 15 at the Yarrow Ecovillage on the topic of senior cohousing, and specific plans for Elderberry Commons.

Find out why this is such a viable and appealing option for today’s senior community (55+). Cohousing is one avenue to help people regain a sense of community and belonging.

The gathering will include refreshments as well as a presentation on cohousing and an opportunity to get to know potential neighbours.

Elderberry Commons is next stage of continued development at the Yarrow Ecovillage (www.yarrowecovillage.ca) and Elderberry will be the main topic of discussion, but anyone interested in cohousing in general is more than welcome to listen in.

Coffee and Connect Cohousing Presentation from 10 a.m. to noon, Dec. 15 at the Bike and Pickle at the Ecovillage, at 42312 Yarrow Central Road, Yarrow. Contact Camille Coray for directions 604-356-5023
