The final episode of The Golden Girls aired almost 30 years ago but it seems they were way ahead of their time in many ways. Many female baby boomers are now taking a lesson from that show’s playbook and living together as they get older. And has more and more baby boomers start hitting retirement age every day, this is a trend that seems to have staying power. FirstLantic explores four of the main drivers.
Why is that when an older woman dated a younger man, she was called a cougar but when a older man dated a younger woman, he was called lucky? Well, maybe that is finally changing. It turns out that people are realizing that love is not dependent on your birthdate and many women and men are following their heart despite the age difference.

This year alone, pet spending in the U.S. is estimated to exceed $72 billion. For fellow animal lovers, this may not seem crazy because our pets offer us something that is very hard to come by – unconditional love. But you don’t have to break the bank to have a furry friend and the benefits are validated by numerous research studies. Animals can have a positive effect on our social lives, our health and our overall emotional well- being. For seniors, there is no better way to decrease loneliness and stress than to have a pet in their home.

Five last minute tax tips to help seniors save money.

And while most of us can’t make monumental changes on our own, we can all do small things that make a difference. FirstLantic describes five ways that each of us can do our part.
It wasn’t that long ago that many American families had three generations living under one roof. While it probably wasn’t always as idyllic as it sounds, it did keep families together and allowed for intergenerational interaction. Kids could learn from both their parents and their grandparents and vice versa.
