With A Little Help From Our Friends With A Little Help From Our Friends
Aging Happily in Community
by Beth Baker

9 x 6 x 0.7 inches, ISBN:978-0826519887

It won’t come as news to anyone that staying active, social and connected are essential to healthy and happy aging. In this award winning book, author-reporter Beth Baker explores just how engaged and resourceful retirees are making this happen. 

Based on numerous visits and interviews, Beth Baker introduces us to some of the many options out there, including: 

  • intentional cohousing villages across the country
  • a senior artist residence in Los Angeles
  • friends who live together sharing life and values
  • multi-generational homes
  • affinity groups forming retirement communities
  • an affordable mobile home co-op in Oregon

And so many environments created by elders for elders to cater to their needs and to foster a rich life where one can age with independence and surrounded by friends, family and a community of like-minded people. Practical yet empathetic, Beth Baker also considers cost and affordability. Lastly, she examines how we can juggle resources and use community, home-care and technology to help elders, their family, neighbors and caretakers stay connected.

This book is for baby-boomers who wonder about the years and decades to come, and for their children too.
