Adapting co-living

We believe that we can achieve better outcomes by developing new norms for how, where and with whom we live as we age. Baby Boomers are unlikely to see themselves in current aged care living arrangements, yet there hasn’t been a focus on enunciating how they want to live their later life.

We’re exploring how to adapt co-living, co-housing and near-living models to work for older people in a mainstream Australian context.

We’re working to bring Shared Lives, a successful model of shared living for people living with care needs, to Australia  – turning households into places of care and community connection as an alternative to residential aged care.
