I would firstly like to take a moment to Honour and dedicate the vision and name of Violet Shared Homes to my wonderful Auntie Violet, who inspired me to execute this vision and bring our ambitions to fruition. She championed the importance of family and friends supporting each other. Being in the company of people especially the ones she loved, always played high on her agenda. She was very aware of how lucky she was, however, acutely aware as to the 1000's of people in the UK who were not as fortunate as her, and the possible impact of loneliness on one's physical and mental wellbeing.
Violet Share Homes are not to be mistaken as residential care or Nursing Homes Violet Share Homes offer a unique housing service strictly for men and women over the age of 55 in the form of exclusive shared accommodation.
Choosing to reside at a Violet Shared home will not only provide you the opportunity to make at least additional genuine and compatible friends. You will be in the same environment of similar minded individuals, in safe happy cosy and peaceful surroundings, enjoying each others company as housemates, Whether that be going on a group holiday, simply having a home cooked meal together and watching a late night movie, or sharing an Uber after a late night out. Yes you read correctly, a late night out! You are never too old to have fun!
“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone”

Soaring numbers of over-50s in England will suffer from loneliness in the coming years as a result of widowhood, ill-health and money problems, according to a new analysis. While the proportion of the population who say they “often” feel lonely will not change from one in 12, the number of those affected will rise as a result of the increase in numbers of people over 50.
The findings come as the government finalises its strategy to combat loneliness, which charities, councils and health experts say has increased in recent years as a result of lengthening lifespans, cuts to social care services and families becoming more spread geographically.
Age UK warns that the problem is a looming “major public health concern, because if loneliness is not addressed it can become chronic, seriously affecting people’s health and wellbeing”. Lonely people are more likely to report mental and physical ill-health.
“Loneliness is a far from trivial issue. It can have a devastating effect on people’s physical and mental health, as well as placing an increasing burden on health and social care,” said councillor Ian Hudspeth, the chairman of the wellbeing board of the Local Government Association, which represents councils.“For too many people, loneliness is their reality all year round. They are often less able to look after themselves, which can make existing health conditions worse and are more likely to become reliant on public services sooner.” Violet Share Homes offer a unique housing service strictly for men and women over the age of 55 in the form of exclusive shared accommodation.
