VIDEO OF THE WEEK
Senior villages are another type of purposeful co-housing that has become quite widespread throughout the country as more and more seniors focus on “aging in place.” The “Village Movement” started with Beacon Hill Village in Massachusetts in 2002, and now includes over 120 villages in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the Netherlands.
Check out what these villagers in St. Louis have to say “about the Village movement and living in an intentional community of neighbors.”
