About Us

We are a group of seniors, mainly from the Greater Boston metro area, along with a few outlanders.


We’re in our 50s to early 80s, with most of us in our 60s.  Many pathways have brought us here, and we welcome new stories to the saga.  We are single, divorced, widowed, and married. Some of us have adult children and some have grandchildren.


About half of us are working full- or part-time.  We’ve held a wide variety of jobs.  Be sure to check out our Member Profiles to discover more about us.


We’re a busy bunch with interests that include hiking, rowing, biking, swimming, kayaking, flower and vegetable gardening, quilting, knitting, rug hooking, playing classical music (flute, harp, piano), choral singing, contradancing, crafts, cooking, pottery making, yoga, meditation, and restoring vintage cars, scooters, and motorcycles.  We definitely know how to have fun!

Our Vision & Values

We are a community of active older adults committed to living sustainably on the earth, creating a beautiful place to live, and nourishing the body and soul.

We embrace diversity as vital to a flourishing community. 

We value lifelong learning and personal growth. 

We care about and support one another, balancing independence and mutual concern.

We strive to be compassionate and respectful in our relationships.

We look for opportunities to celebrate, engage with the world, and have fun!

And another value, our nondiscrimination statement:
Hager Homestead as a cohousing community, with Middlesex Senior Cohousing as the development entity, are committed to following the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the Nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex or gender, handicap, familial status, national origin or other protected status.
