Minka: Homes and Communities
Older people are often forced to leave their homes because they have lost their driver’s license, or they can no longer shop for and prepare food or because they fell behind on home maintenance. It takes energy, time and attention to run a household and the task is especially challenging for people who live alone, no matter their age or cognitive ability. This is especially true for those without friends or family living nearby.
Minka was developed based around the notion that all people deserve to live in the place and manner of their choosing. Dr. Bill Thomas has spent decades as an entrepreneur with a dedication for innovations that help people live better lives.
After breaking bread and engaging in deep conversation with over 130 during the ChangingAging Tour Dr. Thomas founded Minka Homes and Communities. Minka takes a “goldilocks” approach to housing; developing efficient, affordable compact homes that are not too big, and not too small.
