How to Start a Golden Girls Home


Golden Girls Cover_FRONT_FINALWe wrote the book on shared housing!

“Shared Living is an important new possibility for mature women. The Golden Girls Network book contains many practical ideas and is a must read.”

— Marianne Kilkenny, author of Your Quest for Home: A Guidebook to Find the Ideal Community for Your Later Years

How to Start a Golden Girls Home offers guidance on how to make your home attractive to roommates, questions to ask in an interview, how to handle pets, boyfriends, and other tricky situations, as well as hundreds of other tips about seniors sharing homes. Plus, it includes sample applications, leases, and other great resources. If you’re considering starting a Golden Girls home, but not sure where to start—or are thinking about shared housing but aren’t quite sure if it’s for you — you must read this book!

The book draws on the experiences of our founder and shared housing expert Bonnie Moore—both in her own Golden Girls home and those of the many members of Golden Girls Network.

How to Start a Golden Girls Home is available for purchase on Amazon.com for $14.99 (paperback) or $9.99 (Kindle).
