Generally speaking, people need companionship. For seniors, companionship in the form of co-habitation can also open a practical pathway for remaining independent, preserving financial resources, and avoiding social isolation. The popular television sitcom “The Golden Girls,” featuring four older women—three widows and a divorcee—is perhaps the most familiar example of a seniors-living arrangement. The program is also a hit with viewers who are one or two generations younger than the cast. Interestingly, in recent years, co-living has emerged as a popular lifestyle choice for many 20-somethings, who embrace the opportunity to eliminate long-term leases and be less “tied” to a specific location. For example, companies like Common, Quarters, and We Live offer furnished dormitory-style rooms in prime urban locations, often geared to technology professionals and digital nomads. These units aren’t cheap, by most peoples ‘standards, but the residents enjoy extensive amenities and easy opportunities to develop social connections’-living may also be an attractive option for some of your clients, ages 50+.You can use the information included in this issue of The SRES® Professional to help them explore this approach to active adult living and aging in place. Typically, seniors who implement co-living are homeowners who desire additional income and companionship. On the flip side, renters can reduce their housing costs and enjoy a higher quality of life by seeking out a co-living arrangement.

Co-Living versus Co-Housing

While co-living and co-housing are both considered intentional communities, there are important distinctions. In a co-living arrangement, people without family ties choose to cohabitate in a single dwelling. Typically, each resident has a private bedroom (or a bedroom and bathroom suite), but other rooms, including the kitchen, dining room, living room, and laundry space, are considered common areas.

In contrast, in a co-housing community, each individual, couple, or family has an independent living unit (single-family homes, condos, or apartments). Residents share spaces that are located outside their homes, including game rooms, commercial kitchens, pools, libraries, meeting and conference rooms, activity spaces, and fitness rooms.

Co-Living May Improve Seniors’ Circumstances

Lack of affordable housing is an obstacle that can hit the senior population particularly hard. Plus, as the number of senior households continues expanding to unprecedented levels, it’s a problem that will only get worse. According to the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University (JCHS)1, over the next two decades (ending 2038), households in their 80s will be the fastest-growing age group. During that time, the share of households age 65 and older will increase from 26percent (2018) to 34 percent (2038). Many of these households already face cost burdens. (See map. To drill down to your local MSA and view differences by age or among renters versus owners, visit the online, interactive map here.

Meanwhile, the cost of living in a senior community continues to escalate. For example, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 20193, the U.S. median monthly cost of assisted living is $4,051 and is expected to rise to $5,608 by 2030.Many seniors are not going to be in a financial position to select traditional living arrangements and care routes, even if they sell their family home to help finance it. The proceeds won’t last long enough. Since a financial squeeze is imminent for many individuals, creative and affordable solutions may be in high demand. Co-living offers an option to “rent out” one or more bedrooms in a currently owned home, allowing seniors to stay put longer, reduce living expenses, and preserve their assets.

Co-Living Advantages

Co-living can help counter the typical age-related narrowing of experiences, freedom, autonomy, and adventure. It can encourage a new way of thinking and living that is deeply fulfilling and financially accessible.

1. Physical
Sharing household responsibilities can lessen the load, especially if the housemates complement each other’s physical strengths and weaknesses. For instance, if one resident can’t drive, but another can, the ability to handle errands, grocery shopping, and similar tasks extends. Likewise, the person who drives may not be able to stand for long periods in the kitchen, while the housemate who can’t drive has no difficulty cooking.

One person may hate to dust but doesn’t mind doing dishes. Constructing a co-living group that complements each individual will extend the time everyone will be able to age in place and stay active and independent.

2. Financial
Fewer seniors own their own homes outright these days. They are more likely to have a mortgage or even a second mortgage and may have consumer debt too. Thirty-years ago, 24 percent of homeowners aged 65–79 still carried a mortgage. In 2016, 46 percent did, with a median balance of $77,000.4Co-living can help a homeowner afford to stay in their home, while also reducing costs for seniors who rent. It can be an excellent way to retain a quality of life and standard of living, despite of the potential for income to plummet upon retirement.

Sharing space means dividing up utility costs and home maintenance expenses. Seniors may also be able to pool their needs for other services and negotiate a lower price on everything from meal preparation and grocery deliveries, to household cleaning and possibly even home health and physical therapy services.

3. Psychological and Health
Multiple studies5 have found that health and well-being are acutely social. Loneliness is one aspect of aging in place that co-living can help remedy. Researchers have found that loneliness can be just as harmful as obesity or smoking 15 cigarettes per day, shortening an individual’s life by 15 years. In part, this is because loneliness triggers the release of stress hormones associated with lowered resistance to infection, elevated blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease, and even cancer. Likewise, social isolation can accelerate cognitive decline.

A sense of belonging and community can be nurtured with scheduled co-living events like “movie night” or “game night,” as well as spending time together preparing and enjoying meals. By striking a balance between together time and time for privacy and solitude, residents can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Potential Pitfalls

Any time people live together, there are opportunities for conflict. Housemate situations can be difficult at any age, but cognitive and mobility issues can compound the situation. A written, mutually beneficial rental agreement is useful for avoiding problems. The homeowner may feel possessive about household contents and daily routines. In contrast, a new renter—especially one who has left their own house to become a renter in someone else’s—may feel they have lost autonomy and control of their environment. If a written agreement is not in place, changes in health and mobility may leave a more able-bodied resident feeling that they have become another resident’s primary caregiver. This is especially likely if there is a sudden or unexpected change in circumstances. Other potential pitfalls can be addressed by utilizing a thorough interview process, a criminal background check, and a credit check. It’s better to be cautious than end up with a situation that causes seniors to isolate themselves in their rooms to avoid housemate conflicts. Encourage prospective roommates to institute a “trial period” of two weeks to two months to see how well everyone gets along, after which either side can decide against the match. No harm, no foul

Create a written agreement that outlines who pays for what and when, how bills will be divided, and what happens when new household services or supplies are needed. Messy Individuals have different tolerance for clutter and dirt. Reach an agreement that keeps both sides happy. More People or Pets Outline a policy on guests and pets before specific situations arise. Will any pets be allowed? How often can residents entertain overnight guests, and what notification (if any) should be given to other residents? Mitigate Scheduling Conflicts Create entertaining guidelines to avoid situations where one resident’s plans to have people over for a party, a meeting, or a game night might conflict with another resident’s plans. Manage Ownership and Privacy Issues Some people need more privacy
than others. Written agreements can help prevent friction, as will front-end determinations of what’s a personal possession versus a household item.

Co-living is an increasingly popular lifestyle that offers seniors a satisfying and financially viable way to remain independent longer—but also depends heavily on finding a suitable roommate.

5 Steps for Finding a Good Housemate

1. Don’t Limit Yourself
Consider looking outside your age range. Depending on the individual, a college student with a job and a studious nature may be a good fit. You might want to offer regular home-cooked meals in exchange for their efforts on cleaning, yard chores, or running errands. Alternately, a business professional who is seldom home, but needs calm and quiet when they are home may be a perfect fit for your lifestyle. Or someone who travels often and needs pet care while they are away.

2. Seek Compatibility
Look for someone who is financially stable, shares some of your interests, has a similar lifestyle, and enjoys the same level of cleanliness (or chaos). This will help you avoid the most common roommate arguments. If you have physical limitations, select a roommate with different restrictions so that you can help one another. Choose someone who compliments your strengths and weaknesses. A poor choice may
result in less interaction and more loneliness, so be sure to agree to a “trial” period, for everyone’s sake.

3. Discuss Personal Preferences
Privacy expectations and lifestyle preferences should be discussed and agreed upon. For example, if one person is a night owl and the other an early riser, the arrangement may work flawlessly (to allow each other some alone time). Or, you may clash with one another (if one person blasts the television or bangs pots and pans while the other is trying to sleep).

4. Protect Yourself
Meet potential roommates for the first time in a public place (get coffee and chat), to gauge your compatibility before inviting them to see your home. If you do like them and want to show the home, be
sure, a friend or family member is at your place when you invite a potential roommate over for the first time. Get references from previous roommates or consider a background check and a credit check before inviting someone you don’t know to live in your home. If renting, add the roommate’s name to the lease or on a sublease. Put any agreements you make in writing.

5. Enjoy!
It can be delightful to live with a well-selected roommate. Don’t forget to relish the company, appreciate your differences, and work together to experience a better life than either of you could have
enjoyed on your own.

Skincare after Age 50

Skincare after Age 50

Fave Lifestyles`

As we age, lots of things about our bodies change too. Sometimes, the most apparent changes show up
in our skin, and skincare after age 50 becomes even more important. Of course, beauty is always from
within, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take some simple steps to make sure our fabulous 50s+ skin
matches our inner gorgeous too.

Sunscreen Is A Must

If only we could go back and tell ourselves to WEAR SUNSCREEN, right? Most of the sun damage we
experience in our entire lives happens by the time we’re 20! Raise your hand if you thought you would
live and have smooth skin forever then. Sun damage is the number one reason we have wrinkles,
freckles, age spots and cancers, and it’s more important than ever to wear some SPF every day. Choose
one that blocks both UVA and UVB rays, and choose something that protects your skin with physical
barrier (zinc/titanium dioxide) rather than chemical (which the FDA cautions against). Find something
that you can put on underneath your makeup and don’t forget to use on your hands and chest, as
they’re the number one places our skin betrays our age! Consider using a tinted sunscreen under your
daily makeup to have a little less ‘shiny’ look and more blend-ability with your makeup routine.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Drinking water is so important, no matter our age. But as we age, we actually find ourselves feeling less
and less thirsty. Our bodies tell us we don’t need as much water, but that’s simply not true. Good
hydration is what an emergency room doctor will look for when they pull skin from your hands, and it’s
the same thing a dermatologist will look for as they assess your face and the skin’s ability to bounce back
and stay smoother. Water hydrates our cells, which hydrates our body’s largest organ—the skin. That
plays out in fresher, smoother, glowing facial skin. It’s the most natural thing you can do, and believe it
or not, dermatologists will tell you it’s their number one go-to for having gorgeous skin at any age.

Choose Cleansers and Moisturizers Wisely

As we’ve said, our skin becomes drier and drier as we age because we produce less body oil and have
less cell turnover—particularly after menopause. If you’re lucky enough to have oily skin, choose a
cleanser and a moisturizer that works to keep that oil production balanced but in your favor. If you have
drier skin, you’ll want to find cleansers and moisturizers that utilize natural oils (coconut, jojoba, argan)
to keep your skin fresh and smooth.

When washing your face, use lukewarm water—hot water will strip your skin of precious oils. Creamy
cleansers and moisturizers tend to hydrate and freshen skin the best, and a thick and moisturizing cream
will lock in moisture the best. Moisturizer at least twice a day needs to be a must in your routine, and
thicker at night is better.

Moisturizers with hyaluronic acid can plump your skin in the process. Choose soaps that are made of
natural ingredients and oils for your overall body wash—even consider creamy body washes to keep
your entire body hydrated and moist. Skin is important for our immune health as well as our
appearance, and taking care to keep it moisturized is key.

Only Exfoliate The Skin You Want To Glow

As we mature, the outer layer of our skin thickens. It’s full of dead skin anyway, so exfoliation takes that
thicker skin away and reveals the fresher, youthful skin. During summer months, exfoliating once or
twice a week is pretty good—but if your skin gets dry or flaky, do more. During the winter, you may find
you need to exfoliate daily. Using a dry brush to exfoliate before you shower actually helps your after-
shower moisturizer stays on and absorbs better.

When it comes to your skin, facial scrubs are not necessarily must-dos, but if you want your skin to feel
ahh-mazing and look it’s best, you’ll want to do a facial scrub to exfoliate. Remember how grandma used
to mix sugar and olive oil together for a DIY homemade facial? That’s because she knew the key to
glowing skin was removing dead skin cells and rejuvenating the new fresh ones.

Choose A Good Cream

There are some pretty amazing creams out there, but the thing is, they all promise to do the same
thing—erase wrinkles, make you look like you’re in your 20s, etc.

The reality is that the best creams (particularly around the delicate and thin eye skin) are the super
moisturizing ones. The thicker, the better, and the more natural oils they have, the better still. Using
ones with hyaluronic acid and Retin A can show some results, as well as ones with natural supplements
like Vitamin C or Vitamin E. Just know some of the Retin A creams can make your skin super dry and
flaky, so use with caution. There are many creams on the market and pricey at that—just remember that
our best skin offense is a good defense in the form of sun protection and hydration first.

Pulling Out The Big Guns

Does Botox work? Yes, it does. It freezes the wrinkles in your face and keeps you looking smoother.
Sometimes, combined with fillers, you can look several years younger—particularly if you do
Botox/fillers on your forehead and around your crow’s feet. Botox and fillers help the appearance of fat
loss in your cheeks and lifts your eyes to make them look more awake and younger. You can get rid of
the “Angry 11s” with Botox and filler, and you only need to do so every 6-8 months.

But you also have some risk in bruising for a day or two after, as well as some discomfort in the process.

That’s why some women turn to chemical peels and lasers. While they’re costly and sometimes painful,
they’re also pretty successful in bringing some youthful appearance back to your skin. Chemical peels
can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and soften your skin tone and texture. They
typically need six or more for full effect and are less invasive than laser, but more commitment in the

The most important thing to remember when it comes to skincare after 50 is that the skin you’re in is
BEAUTIFUL because it’s yours! It’s seen you through the good and the bad of life, and you can keep it
happy and healthy with some minimal protection and TLC. So start now—get yourself a glass of water,
make sure you have sunscreen in your daily routine and treat yourself to a nice, relaxing (lukewarm)
bubble bath full of exfoliation and moisturization to follow!

I was becoming an empty nester, a woman of a more interesting age and in transition. Sound familiar? I was at that place where we question our purpose, value, and worth and what in the world are we going to do with the rest of our lives.

I noticed women have a huge hunger to belong to a community of women where they can feel safe, share openly from their heart and have other women to do life with! This is why I created my Fave Lifestyles.

Fave is for the woman who wants to call Fave her community of women who support, uplift, and make her feel better about herself. I want to create a place where we help her answer life's questions and just do life together!

A Simple and Satisfying Spirituality

A Simple and Satisfying Spirituality

Fave Lifestyles

We Can’t Take It With Us

We all know that we can’t take our possessions with us when we die. Thus, our possessions are not the most important in our lives. We don’t take our bodies with us either! We spend a lot of time and money on what we have and what we look like, and neither of these is eternal.

What Can We Take With Us

What do we take with us when we die? We take the Essence of who we are, our Soul, with us to the next realm. Our Soul is the Eternal part of us, which connects with Universal God Source, always and forever. We also take our experiences with us. Everything we experience in each lifetime is part of who we are. We might face the reality and natural consequences of our actions, but it is so we can learn, change, and be healed by God.

A Simple Spirituality Sees Everyone as Divine

I have spent most of my life trying to figure out God through the lens of religion. In the very back of my mind, I have wondered if I was getting it right or if I was doing enough. I wondered why religious life seemed so hard to manage! When I resigned from my church job in 2014, I asked God, “Okay, what else in the world can you use for my healing and the healing of humankind?”

I discovered a Simple Spirituality when I went to India for our daughter’s Wedding, and I learned the meaning of the word, ‘Namaste’’ – the Divine in Me greets the Divine in You. I thought, “That is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.” In the greeting, ‘Namaste,’ I instantly saw the Divinity of all people, past, present, and future. From that point on, I automatically became a more loving member of the Human Family.

You might be thinking, “What about Hitler or the police officer who caused the death of George Floyd? Are they Divine?” My response is, “Yes, they are. We all are Divine.” For some of us, our Divine nature is obscured by generational influences, by life circumstances, and by the story we tell ourselves. My hope is all people would know of their Divine Soul and would find a place within themselves filled with Love!

A Simple Spirituality is to see everyone as Divine. Our Eternal Soul is connected to Universal God Source. We have a place within and beyond our body, which is pure and sinless and whole. As a part of each human experience, we also have our Evolving Self, which is the part of us that is Evolving toward Love in our lifetime. I pray that someday this message of our Eternal Soul and Evolving Self, which is the Essence of who we are, will reach those who need to know how Beautiful and Valuable they are.

A Simple and Satisfying Spirituality

A Satisfying Spirituality Is We Are All Being Saved

I used to say, “God, save them from themselves” when I would see a tired or dirty person walk on the sidewalk or beside the road, sometimes carrying their possessions with them. Now I add myself to that prayer, “And God, please save me from myself, too.” Some hope to be saved from hell at the end of their life. I pray God would help us be saved today.

To me, it is more Satisfying to know that God is saving me today because today is all I have. I am Satisfied to know that God is Good, and God has my Highest Good in mind. It is Satisfying to co-create my life with God and to know that my actions and efforts are answered by God’s timing. I am Satisfied to know God and I are working together to grow and mature my Evolving Self during each lifetime. I am Satisfied that I will have as many chances as I need to become the most Loving person I can be.

When Her Brother Was Dying

A friend of mine told me her Brother was dying and asked if I would pray. I messaged her back to say, “His Eternal Soul is connected to God, and God will take good care of him.” My words brought comfort and peace to my friend, and that’s how I know they are True.

A Simple and Satisfying Spirituality in Three Understandings

  1. We are all Divine and connected to God, always and forever through our Eternal Soul.
  2. We are all growing toward Love through our Evolving Self from which we are being saved, moment by moment.
  3. We can Love everyone with the understanding that they, like us, are doing the Best they know to do as they continue to grow and mature.

I hope these understandings allow you to Love yourself, and others, and the planet in an increasing measure, and in so doing, show the Love of God.

You’re up having a cup of coffee and you’re thinking about your day and where you’re going to go…

Ok, meeting your girlfriends for lunch and how fun that will be? I think I want to wear my red dress and that will go with my cute new flats.

You go to your closet. Ugh..the red dress is dirty. So you say to yourself in your mind, why isn’t it easy to grab something I feel good in? I have so many things to choose from. You start digging through things to see if there is something you forgot about. That one’s too short, this one’s too tight…that fabric is scratchy on my skin. I know I must have something that will look good with my new shoes!! So you decide on a good old standby you usually wear.

I know that’s why I’m going shopping… I really just need to get some new things!

IS THAT YOU? I totally get it!

Today with all the things that have changed this year, it’s a good time to start fresh and adjust your wardrobe to your lifestyle today. Maybe you are working from home and Zoom is your new office. When you get dressed every day, you can feel good about how you look and the energy you emit by feeling good about you. It really starts in your closet, doesn’t it?

Maybe it’s time to let go of the items in your closet you aren’t wearing anyway. It’s time, to be honest with yourself about why you aren’t wearing most of the things in your closet. It doesn’t fit right or doesn’t go with anything else you have. You bought it because it was on sale or so cute you sure you’d wear it but then when you wore it it wasn’t that comfortable or no one even noticed.
Some women hate to shop because they’ve put on a few pounds and are uncomfortable and you HAVE to get something else to be comfortable now. Stop waiting to lose weight and accept your body size now. You can always get something more in style later. Just relax and be who you are today.

I can help you and help you release any regret or guilt! We’ll start in a fun and easy way by easily decluttering your things a little every day so you can have a fresh start on new possibilities!

Drawing Love To You

Drawing Love To You

Fave Lifestyles

Feeling loved, receiving love is one of our most basic keys to happiness. It is one of the things we spend our lives searching for, sometimes in all the wrong places. I was recently reminded of how important our specific Love Language is in helping to draw love to us. The concept of Love Languages was first presented more than 30 years ago by Gary Chapman in his book The Five Love Languages. The principle is that there are five unique ways in which we express love, receive love, and feel love. The five love languages are: Words of Affirmation, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, Acts of Service, and
Physical Touch.

It is crucial to know your own love language and that of the important people in your life, to be able to more effectively show love and receive love in your life. Knowing not just the love language of your significant other, but your children, your closest friends, and family. For those of you who didn’t study Love Languages back in the day or need a refresher, here is a quick overview of the five love languages and their characteristics:

– Words of Affirmation
Verbal compliments and words of praise. Negative words are especially hurtful

– Quality Time
Giving a loved one your undivided and focused attention. Lack of attention is very difficult

– Receiving Gifts
Gift giving is a sign of love and affection. You remember who gave you what and when. You display and take care of gifts. Not receiving a thoughtful gift is very especially hurtful

– Acts of Service
Feeling loved when someone does something to lighten your responsibility load. Doing especially loathsome chores for your loved ones as an expression of love.

– Physical Touch
Feeling especially loved through physical touch. Thoughtful rituals of kissing and hugging and holding hands with loved ones.

It’s fantastic when the significant people in your life know your love language and use it to express love to you, but that doesn’t always happen. In fact, I’m willing to bet, unless your significant person possesses your same love language, it rarely happens. Most of us have a hard time expressing love in a language other than our own. You will most likely show love to people using your own love language.

Due to that fact, you may be loved by your significant people but not really feel it deeply because it’s not expressed in your love language. That’s right. Say, you are a Words of Affirmation person but your partner is an Acts of Service person. You may have your laundry done for you and your garbage is taken out each week, but you may not feel truly deeply loved. Some relationships go years this way. It is tragic to think that the people you love are not feeling that love. But there is hope, read on!

Drawing Love To You

There are ways to draw love to you through love languages. Here is how it works:

First, discover what love languages your significant people are by a quick study of the Love Languages below. Then watch for them to express love to you in their love languages. When you can learn to spot all the ways in which your person is showing you love, you can begin to feel loved on a whole new level.

Look for the love expressed in other people’s love languages

– Words of Affirmation
They give you cards, leave notes, send texts, encouraging words and compliments

– Physical Touch
They give you hugs and kisses. Hold hands, make thoughtful intimacy a priority

– Receiving Gifts
They make a point of giving you thoughtful gifts. They make small gestures that you notice matter a lot to them.

– Quality Time
They plan times to spend together, big and small, from taking walks or weekends away.

– Acts of Service
They do chores for you and make a point of trying to alleviate your workload. They make your meals.

You will find your perspective shifting immensely toward greater and deeper love when you are able to train yourself to see love coming your way in other love languages. It really is a whole new level of feeling loved by your significant people.

You may be asking yourself “but will I ever receive love expressed in MY love language”? Yes, there are also things you can do to draw love to you in your love language. Read on…

Just as you trained yourself to begin to notice when your significant people show you love in their love language, you can train yourself to spot love coming your way in your own love language. Here’s what you do: When you do see it, even in the briefest way, make a big deal of it! Express how much it makes your day, how deeply loved you feel! I’ll bet you’ll start to see it happen more often. It’s a double whammy of love!

As a certified women's empowerment coach, I have changed the outcome for countless motivated, dynamic women in empowering them to get out of their own way and conquer life's hurdles relating to relationships and personal development.
