WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS Creating Community as We Grow Older

by | Read by Lee Ann Howlett

Personal Growth • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Beth Baker skillfully examines this look at the many possibilities of housing for the elderly. Narrator Lee Ann Howlett confidently recounts the author's visits and interviews with residents and managers of varied types of housing--delivering both the positive and negative aspects of each. Listeners will meet people who are staying in place (remaining where one has always lived), living in cooperatives that are sometimes multigenerational (including apartments and trailers), living in specially designed villages, and sharing a house with friends old or new. Most memorable is Howlett's artful rendering of Hope Meadows in Rantoul, Illinois, a facility that combines the elderly and resident foster children. One woman who moved there from sunny California proudly proclaims that she's never bored and plans to live there forever. The helpful epilogue focuses on Beth Baker's own housing planning, well in advance of her future needs. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
