This statement is designed to give prospective MUCH members accurate information about our views on the age of MUCH residents and of resident children for the purposes of recruitment. We will refine this statement at a later date, to turn it into a clear policy. [Agreed MUCH GM Sept. 2014]
MUCH is intended to be a community of people aged over 50 where we can live positive and supported lives for as long as possible (see our vision and values statement). We hope to have a balanced age community.
Residents may have adult guests who are younger than 50 (for example adult children) for periods of time. As a group and by consensus, we will agree how long such visitors can stay and what their responsibilities are whilst resident.
Children under 18 will similarly be welcome for periods, as guests, but MUCH will be designed with older people not children in mind. As a group and by consensus we will agree how long such children can stay and what their responsibilities are whilst resident.
