I was watching "The Golden Girls" on TV when I came to realize (and accept) a truth that is present in our Nation and around the world. There are many "Golden Years" citizens who can't afford to live on their own retirement income, but could easily cohabitate a with others, of whom they are compatible.
After a small bit of research, I found that there are communities that are designed, especially for this purpose. There are communities that provide walking tracks, community swimming pools, tennis courts, etc. for the use of their residents. The homeowners share in the expense of their home which includes common area maintenance fees, that cover the upkeep of the public facilities and the landscaping.
If these communities were to be powered by solar power, there would be reduced monthly electricity bills. The residents would be left with enjoying their remaining years, without fears of maintenance, or excessive housing costs. All expenses would be shared between the residents of each home.
It is great for some golden years people to have adequate financial reserves to provide for living exactly as they would like. It would also be great if there were more facilities that would be designed to address the realities of finances in our later years. Builders, and contractors, could still make their profits off of developing this type of community. These communities are not for everyone, but wouldn't they be great for those who need them.
