The Power of Community by Charles Durrett
Charles Durrett, a pioneering co-housing expert, considers how creating age-friendly communities offers opportunities and challenges as the North American population ages. As we move into the 21st century, creating physical and social environments to support independent and active living and enabling people in their 50s, 60s and beyond to continue contributing to the community is vital.
