It’s “easy living” in a senior housing cooperative. No more mowing. No more snow removal. No more plumbing hassles or leaking roofs. Instead, you are free to enjoy your home and do the things you like to do.
Not only does the cooperative handle maintenance and upkeep of the exterior and grounds, but it also handles repair and periodic replacement of many of the interior amenities, including appliances, flooring, window treatments, cabinets and fixtures in the units and common areas.
If you are one of the many who love gardening and would miss it, there’s ample opportunity to be involved in the planting and upkeep of the grounds, and you can have your own community garden plot at many cooperatives. Similarly, if you like tinkering with household projects, you can use the cooperative’s workshop for woodworking, furniture refinishing and other satisfying pastimes.
Are you a snowbird, or do you just love to travel? Simply lock the door and go. But if you’re like many, you may return early because you miss your cooperative friends.
