We know that the world’s population is aging. It is predicted that by 2050, the number of people over 60 years old will triple. One can deal with aging in many different ways in order to live well and have a good quality of life. As we become older, there are different options for living. Some people need to be taken care of by their children, while others go to a nursing home. However, there are still some bold ones who do not want to live alone and choose to live with their friends. The new trend is cohousing — a housing scheme created in Denmark, which values the contact you get with friends when living in the community.
