- Wouldn't You Want to Live in a Cozy Home Community™? Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP 44:32
Matt Thornhill had a successful consulting business dedicated to researching and understanding the needs of the Boomer generation.
He came to realize there was an essential unmet need for the middle-income sector of that demographic and upon leaving his consulting practice, he decided to pursue a solution.
The result, Cozy Home Communities.
In this episode, Matt describes this innovative concept as one part of the living solution for older adults: These homes designed close to one another, with appropriate social distancing, allows neighbors to help neighbors and offers a new approach to living for a new stage of life:
Imagine living in your own house in a small neighborhood where your NEIGHBORS ARE YOUR FRIENDS. Friends with whom you share common interests, backgrounds or stories with the added bonus that your neighbors, or friends, have agreed to help each other when the need arises. Not only for their neighbors but also for the community.
Knowing your neighbors is not a trite expression, it’s not about casually passing someone and saying, good morning or good afternoon. It’s about really getting to know your neighbor, about finding people with whom you have an affinity at this stage of life.
Have you arrived at the time in your life when your relationships are more important to you than the accumulation of things? The importance of relationships and connection is not only documented in literature, but something we all experienced since the outbreak of COVID in 2020. Rather than living alone in your existing home surrounded by things, Cozy Home Communities ™ gives you the opportunity to live amongst people with common interests and stories, where you can form lasting relationships with peers you see daily.
Learn more about the design of each stand-alone individual home and how a group of homes is clustered into a “pocket” neighborhood. A group of neighborhoods in close proximity, with a central common area creates a colony. A Cozy Home Community™ consists of multiple Colonies.
This seems like a perfect solution for this level of the market. Learn when the first communities are breaking ground and when, or if, a Cozy Home Community ™ may be coming to an area where you live.
