ELDER HOME SHARE IS A SOLUTION
A solution that allows older homeowners to continue to live at home with more independence and safety by matching them up with a home share companion. Home share companions provide security at night, companionship and help with practical tasks such as light housework and shopping in exchange for a place to live. Home share companions give 10 hours a week in companionship and support.
We provide and are here to ensure you find the best match for your loved one with our home share scheme!
We have been successfully matching elderly homeowners and home share companions since January 2016.
Free online consultation so you can ask lots of questions and decide if this is for you
Reference checking of the companion
Monthly check-in's to ensure the match is working well
A trial live in month to test out the home-sharing experience and see if it is the right fit
Our Home Share Agreement has been reviewed by A&L Good Body Solicitors. To ensure that all parties involved are aware of the expectations.
Home share companions provide support to the elderly person by:
A secure presence in the house at night for security and peace of mind
Spending quality time together during the evening time and over the weekend
Doing light housework such as hoovering, cleaning the kitchen and putting out the bins
Going to the shops for messages and running errands for the homeowner
Just keep in mind Elder Home Share is not a solution to personal care but can support, compliment and reduce the need for expensive care services.
We are proud to bring our Social Entrepreneurs Ireland awarded home share scheme to Northern Ireland.
