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
