Seniors Sharing Houses is a fairly new phenomenon. Independent seniors are finding creative ways to maintain their senior lifestyles, friends and neighborhood instead of selling their home and moving to a more affordable or more easily maintained residence.
Betty and Jim lived in their Senior Community for almost 10 years. They made new friends there and enjoyed the many activities that a senior residence community offers. They enjoyed the movie nights, the trips to local attractions, the bridge games on Tuesday afternoons. Then Jim suffered a stroke and died. Betty was supported by her many friends and her community.
As the months passed, Betty wondered what to do next in her life. She wondered if she should sell this home to reduce her expenses. Getting advice from family and friends she decided to try to find a house sharing mate.
This situation is more and more common. More seniors are independent and enjoying active lives well into their 90’s. They don’t want to stop their healthy lifestyles because they find themselves alone. Yet, living alone, supporting a home alone may be daunting for them.
SeniorPremierDating.com has created a special profile that addresses some of the usual questions and needs of independent living with a housemate.
We would love to have posts to this blog about your experiences and thoughts about House Sharing for Seniors.
