Kathy Atkinson Posted about 2 years ago Proposing elderly communal housing; i.e. private residence with central/shared kitchen and living rooms with private bed and bathrooms. I love this concept. There are many churches with outreach programs to help prisoners, the hungry, those in need of good housing. I'm wondering if this could be another aspect. Help set up some of these independent living situations so that those of us who would prefer to remain social but have our own private area too could do so.
