The Freedoms of Cohousing

In the spirit of the 4th of July, I’ve been thinking about the many freedoms I’ll gain by living at Heartwood Commons. Here’s just a sampling of the possibilities:


  • Freedom from keeping up a too big house. Living in cohousing will give me more time and money to pursue interests I enjoy.

  • Freedom from stairs and other environmental hazards. My home at Heartwood Commons is designed for my safety and will allow me to age in place longer.

  • Freedom to leave my home for an hour, a day, or a month. Cohousing’s natural neighborhood watch program lets me feel secure when I’m gone.

  • Freedom from feeling isolated. At Heartwood Commons, I can socialize easily and as often as I like.

  • Freedom to grow.  I can enjoy a variety of activities right outside my front door and to satisfy my desire to keep learning.

  • Freedom from major maintenance costs. It will be such a relief knowing major home repairs like a new roof or painting the outside are covered through my HOA dues.

  • Freedom from cooking every meal. Sharing common meals is all about great food and even better conversation.
