In Part 1 of this series, we discussed the significant financial benefits that cooperative living can provide retirees.  In Part 2, we review additional benefits that Co-Op Living can offer you in a retirement community setting.

Community and collaboration are important benefits of cooperative living.  Since residents jointly own shares in the community, their desire to be involved is natural.  Involvement and engagement in the community is a key benefit for seniors. Co-ops like Baywoods of Annapolis offer residents a true sense of community by offering the services and activities that are of greatest interest to the members of the community.  The residents have a voice in the community through their own elected board of Directors whom represent the Community. The Community is NOT owned by an outside corporation instead it’s owned collectively by the resident shareholders.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities, (CCRC’s), co-ops are designed to help members age-in-place.  Aging in place means that the co-op has designed the Campus to accommodate it’s residents as they grow older.  A Variety of amenities that make your day to day life easier and stress free for instance Wellness Checks by an RN, Daily health monitoring, Home Care services available. You want to remain independent while knowing that internal support is a phone call away. These features provide residents with a stable living environment, on-site, even during times when additional care may be required.
