Innovating in Seniors Housing: a Complete Guide to Co-housing (2016)

Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria and the Canadian Seniors Co-housing Society produced this guidebook with funding from the Real Estate Council of BC.  Co-housing is an intentional community design that combines the independence and autonomy of private dwellings with the advantages of common amenities and a village-style support system. This type of ‘co-caring’ is very similar to the principles of community living. While this guide is about how to create co-housing for seniors, much of the content can be applied for people with developmental disabilities.
