ChangingAging reader Page emailed us asking for information regarding a rustic farm group retirement home near Astoria, Ore., where the members of the home contribute to the farm work. It sounds like an example of “intentional retirement communities” where friends band together to create their own retirement home based on their own interests and lifestyle. If any readers know about this specific home in Oregon, please let us know in the comments section. We’d also love to hear about other innovative intentional communities.
I’m writing to inquire about a great sounding group home in Oregon, whether you’ve heard of it. I don’t even have the name, and haven’t gotten anywhere searching on the web. It’s lodge style, rustic, barn buildings, farm animals, and the members help with the farm. I believe it’s near Astoria. Do you know of it or could you suggest anyone who might know?
