Golden Years ~ Senior Roommate Service Combats Loneliness

AARP, Inc., estimates that about 8,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day. With longer and healthier life expectancies, many are divorced or widowed and need roommates to have company and chat with; to share living costs and chores; and for emotional support.

Women-only Roommates4Boomers.com founder Sarah Venable says, “I went online to find a service that helps women over 50 find roommates, and found to my dismay that there were plenty of sites for finding roommates in their 20s and 30s, but nothing for boomer women."

For a $30 fee, the site uses a detailed algorithm to match women not only by location, but by interests, tastes, lifestyles, education, personal preferences and a host of other factors; much like a successful dating website.
