HOW ELDER HOME SHARE WORKS

Peace of mind, companionship and support at home for your loved one

ELDER HOME SHARE IS A SOLUTION

that allows older homeowners to continue to live at home with more independence and safety. This solution provides security at night, companionship and helps with practical tasks such as light housework and shopping. For responsible caring people who are seeking accommodation. This is an affordable living solution, in exchange for sleeping in the house 6 to 7 nights a week and providing an average of 8 to 10 hours a week in companionship and support – it’s a win-win!

We have been successfully matching elderly homeowners and home share companions since January 2016. Find out more read our frequently asked questions for homeowners and companions.

Security, companionship and help around the house.

For the elderly person living alone and their concerned family, the home-sharing solution proves a rewarding way to provide a level of support in the home. 

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

We are proud to be Dublin's first home share scheme and Social Entrepreneurs Ireland awardees 2018 for our homeshare service.
