Our Homeshare service supports older people to continue living independently at home. It brings together an older person who may benefit from companionship, practical help or reassurance, with a carefully matched person who is happy to lend a hand.

How it works

In exchange for offering a spare room in a welcoming home, the Householder can expect 10 hours of help each week as a combination of companionship and practical support.

Each Homeshare match is individual and carefully agreed. It may include some cooking, shopping or gardening, help with phones and technology, time together over a meal or cup of tea, as well as the occasional outing. The reassuring presence of another person in the house overnight is often an additional benefit. A Homeshare arrangement does not involve any personal care.
