You have two options when
it comes to growing old
You can be independent alone or dependent together
Kallimos is pioneering a new way
Being Independent Together
“Some of the loneliest elders in America are living at home on streets filled with houses but without friends, family, or neighbors as part of their daily life. Large senior living buildings offer a solution for some but can be expensive. Because they are age-segregated, they also carry the stigma of being old folks’ homes.”
A MAGIC Community
Multi-Ability, multi-Generational Inclusive Community
All ages are welcome and appreciated for the gifts they bring to the community. With families living farther apart, this style of living is a thing of the past. Kallimos brings generations together to create a community of good neighbors who know and help each other.
Age in Place Homes
The current inventory of housing in this country is not designed for the changing needs that come with aging, injury, or disease. Our homes and common spaces employ universal design concepts to welcome all abilities and extend independence.
Kallimos takes the idea of community and shrinks it down into small pocket neighborhoods where each person can become well-known. Compact houses are clustered around a Commons area. Also included in the neighborhood design are tiny homes with lofts and studio apartments.
A caretaker of the common areas, houses, and gardens in your pocket neighborhood. Keepers are multi-functional workers who support the neighbors.
Each neighborhood is staffed with several Keepers daily.

For 30 years, we have worked within the current system attempting to change it. There has been some progress, but not enough. We can and we must do better. This time, we are working outside the system to create a new way of living.
