Aging gracefully: Germans grow gray together – CNN.com

An interesting idea…

In a spacious, sunlit apartment on the outskirts of Potsdam, Germany, eight roommates between the ages of 80 and 100 share a kitchen, a living room — and 24-hour nursing care.

Though all tenants suffer from dementia, these seniors aren’t whiling away in a nursing home. In the open living area, complete with a flat-screen TV and photos of grandchildren on the wall, an elderly tenant draws, another arranges a flower bouquet, and a third runs a vacuum cleaner repeatedly over the same spot.
