Where do we find community and retain our independence as we grow old? Now that the loving multi-generational family home lives on mainly in nostalgic commercials, where can older folks find community and retain their independence? Two examples are shown here: a landscaped gated community mostly for well-to-do retired couples, and an "Abbeyfield Society" home where up to twelve people share a home, each with their own bed-sitting room with a private bathroom and shower.
