    The concept of heterosexual women living together in senior years intrigues me. I think it is a great idea. Is anyone out there doing it or trying? What have your experiences been? It seems to make so much sense for single women to remain independent and share companionship. I look forward to your responses.

    I am very interested in a femaile cooperative living situation. I have just retired and I’m very conflicted about it. Although I’m going through a divorce, I have been thinking about this for years. I find women (I’m 53) to be more communicative, substantial, reflective and able to share their thoughs unconditionally. My one big problem is that I’d like to stay in New York State where my son and grandson live. Please let me know if you’re aware of any resources. Thank You Kindly, Bev 347-293-4914 BevWatrous@aol.com

    I have approached many of my semi and retired friends about this same idea. I even purchased a home that could be suitable for 3-4 compatible women with that idea in mind in 2005. However, with the downturn in the economy, I now have a mortgage on 2 homes! I have looked into fractional ownership, it is riskier than long term renting and sharing expenses. The concept is new and many women find themselves unable to make changes at this time. I am keeping my dream alive and hope that I can make it happen soon.

    I am so interested in this. However, I find so little information on the Internet about retired woman and communal living. As Pamela, I too have a second home with a mortgage and would either love to build it up to accommodate several women, or sell both homes and purchase a huge one with a few gals who would look forward to a wonderful retirement living this way.

      Hello, this concept/lifestyle sounds good and like to learn more. I live in north central Florida, but would also be open to relocation. Are there any women living in this lifestyle currently with some win-win positive stories? Joy

    I, too, am interested in this concept. I currently live in southwest Florida but also would consider relocation for the right situation and locale.

    While this seems to be a 2009 site, I have just found it and would be thrilled to talk more with all of you about this concept. It is exactly what I’m trying to do with a home we purchased for bus. that didn’t work out. We would just like to do something good for the community and help ourselves to make this 2nd mortgage payment. If you get this, pls feel free to contact me at ezshop@localnet.com and perhaps we can do some brainstorming. I’m going to be meeting Bay Aging this week to get some feedback from their org. I’m also trying to find out how Aging Transportation gets paid for their services. I’d like to have something set up where their rental fee would automatically come from a reliable source. A prospective renter once said he would set up a direct deposit account for his monthly rental but he had 5 children and we weren’t prepared to rent to a family with young-teen children. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Rose

      Prose,

      I like you had about 10 years with their retirement years and their final years. My father passed first, mother had stroke, had to go into a very nice nursing home, and oversaw everything along with my sister for her care. After her passing I moved south to Florida. I live solo and like my independence not in a relationship, but it has a down side in too much isolation and lack of “family” community in my life.

      Will drop you a line. Not sure when your post was made or how current. I just found the site in March, 2012.

      Joy
