Socialization and involvement in leisure activities with other enhance enjoyment of life. Catered dinners, card groups, crafts, book clubs, golf groups, exercise groups and social outings are just a few of the activities you might experience at a cooperative.
"What if something happens to me or my spouse?" Community support, a safe environment and freedom from the worry of maintaining a home also offers a sense of security.
There are advantages of living in a community with peers with similar interests. Cooperatives offer a caring, neighborly environment which promotes development of new friendships and support.
