WORKSHOP TEACHES BABY BOOMERS HOW TO LIVE LIKE THE GOLDEN GIRLS
While The Golden Girls TV sitcom has been off the air for decades, the lifestyle inspired by the show is a growing national trend. Orlando-area adults ages 50 and above are invited to come learn about shared living on Monday, April 27 from 5-7 p.m. at the Art and History Museum of Maitland’s Cottage on Lake Lily located on Lake Lily Drive in Maitland.
The workshop will launch the Central Florida regional affiliate of Golden Girls Network, a company dedicated to helping mature adults find roommates and succeed at shared living. The educational event is free and light refreshments will be provided.
Shared living is on the rise nationally as many struggle with affordable housing in the wake of the recession and the number of unmarried baby boomers grows. According to the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, approximately 4.8 percent of the 185,000 Orange County residents over the age of 60 live alone.
Speakers will include Golden Girls Network Founder Bonnie Moore, who will discuss how to set up a Golden Girls home and Central Florida Regional Director Barbara Koehne. The agenda will include a question and answer session with Moore, whose book about shared living will be published in a second edition later this spring.
Advanced registration is recommended to ensure a space at the workshop. For more information or to register, please visit http://goldengirlsnetwork.com/events/golden-girls-network-central-florida-launch/
