Elderhomeshare has been set up in Dublin, Ireland by Saoirse Sheridan, who, having been given notice to move out of her long term rented accommodation was wondering how she would be able to manage paying Dublin rents. Having gone back to study business as a mature student and started a job bridge internship she had to come up with a solution. As someone who likes living in a quite tidy home and enjoys the company of older people, she came up with the idea of Elderhomeshare. She worked with a network of skilled professionals to make her idea come to life and is delighted to be hitting the street with this service.
