A lot of us did just fine living in dormitories in college. 

But as we got older, the appeal of living so close to other people diminished. 

And then… kids move out and people slow down (and don't want to cook dinner so often). 

Cohousing for seniors is a concept catching on all over the country. 

Cohousing proponent (and dweller) Chuck Durrett joins us to talk about cohousing generally, and senior cohousing specifically.
