I am a retiree and have been looking for share accommodation for quite some time.  However, ads online and in the paper all seem aimed for the younger tenant.  I read about Residential Aged Share in my local Seniors paper and this seemed more suited.  I have basic computer skills and found their website easy to navigate, sign up and browse potential homes.  I was able to find a place with someone within the month, who was closer to my age and had the same interests, and have not looked back.  I would recommend RAS to any retiree looking to share instead of renting and battling all the living costs on your own.
