Charles Durrett - The Senior Cohousing Handbook


The Senior Cohousing Handbook: A Community Approach to Independent Living ($34.95) is a comprehensive guide to joining or creating a cohousing project, written by the US leader in the field, Charles Durrett. Durrett touches on all the psychological and logistical aspects of senior cohousing, and addresses common concerns, fears, and misunderstandings. He emphasizes the many positive benefits of cohousing, including: Better physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health; friendships and accessible social contact; safety and security; affordability; and shared resources.

Successful aging requires control of one's life, and today's generation of seniors--the baby boomers--will find that this book holds a compelling vision for their future.

Charles Durrett is the principal architect at McCamant and Durrett, a firm that specializes in affordable and community-based multi-family housing and cohousing. He has consulted on or designed over fifty cohousing communities internationally and lives in Nevada City, California. He co-authored the groundbreaking Cohousing with his wife and business partner, Kathryn McCamant.
