Why 'Golden Girls' trend is growing

Mar 3, 2017

Remember the TV comedy "The Golden Girls"? The idea of four single senior women living together may have provided the fictional backdrop for plenty of humor. But in real life, more people are choosing to live with roommates in retirement for serious reasons. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Sally Abrahms, a nationally recognized expert on baby boomers and seniors and an award-winning journalist who has written about this trend.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
