Senior Cohousing in Cost Cutting Research
This paper concerns the issues of senior cohousing with a particular emphasis on the residents’ gender. Senior cohousing is an alternative way of living for older people in the 21th century. It is referred to as a community or cooperative, which is created by people aged 50+. The literature review shows the slight scope of the studies conducted on senior cohousing, in particular with regard to gender. The research methodology in this paper is based on the literature analysis, review of the current literature and the author's own experiences from the participation in workshops about cohousing, as well as experiences from the study visits to cohousing groups in the US and UK. The author of this paper has used the historical-interpretative method in the conducted studies, resulting in the identification of the gender and age lens.
