Lillian found an apartment in Berkeley’s only cooperatively owned building for older adults. To live there requires health and mobility good enough to use the building’s elevator, to prepare meals, to manage in case of earthquake or fire. With occupancy full, it also helps to know a resident who will soon be moving out, usually to an assisted living facility, or know that a resident recently died. Lillian qualified on all counts. From her corner location, she enjoyed sweeping views not only of the hills where she had lived, but also of the university, the San Francisco Bay, and two bridges.
Always lurking in the background for the larger society and for these younger individuals is the prospect of their future old age. The next chapter will examine more closely vulnerabilities of the old that can undermine independent living.

18 INDEPENDENCE IN DAILY LIFE During the first years of apartment life Lillian maintained her active schedule, including occasional visits to her sister and to plays, museums, concerts in New York. Then, little by little, she began cutting back. No longer driving, she depended on friends to take her to the market or a movie, on members of the same organizations to bring her to meetings. She began to waver about our monthly board of directors meetings, explaining that she could not hear, even with her hearing aid.
