We would highly recommend Elderhomeshare to anybody who is looking for a safe and well-researched match for their more vulnerable loved ones.”
— DAVID 96, DUNDRUM, HOMEOWNER AND HIS ADULT CHILDREN
I would certainly recommend Elder Home Share's service. As customers, my mum has a lovely companion living with her, and this has allowed mum to be safe and supported at home. The companion brings great life to the house, and we trust her completely. Any communication I have had with Elder Home Share has been really supportive and super helpful. My family and I are delighted we found this great service
Elder home share is a great opportunity and a win-win for the home share companion and the elder sharing the home. I had a great experience dealing with Saoirse who was very kind throughout the process with me. It's a great opportunity and I am very satisfied with the service and experience overall.
Amazing service from start to finish. A brilliant initiative for those looking for an affordable and effective care solution for their families, and an equally impressive opportunity for responsible, caring adults to find an affordable housing option and make a deep connection with a wonderful new housemate.
MARY COLLINS MURPHY SAYS
Having searched in vain for many weeks to find affordable care for my 95yr old mother, I came across Elder Home Share on an internet search. This immediately rang a bell as I had seen a reference to home share on RTE a couple of years earlier.
So, on following up I began to make enquiries, feeling rather apprehensive at first. However, the apprehension soon dissipated as Saoirse, who runs the business, could not have been more helpful and attentive throughout the whole registration and procurement of a suitable companion. Her attentiveness didn't stop there. She followed up on a regular basis both with me and the companion separately, ensuring that we were both happy with our arrangement.
Unfortunately, my mother has since passed, but the companion has become a true friend of my family and is still living with us.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Elder Home Share to anyone who would benefit from companionship in their twilight years and cannot afford the extortionate cost of nursing home care.
All companions are hand-picked by Saoirse to suit each elder person needs and Garda vetted. The companion also benefits by having accommodation at a reasonable cost, so, its a win-win situation.
"My experience has been very positive. Thanks Elder Home Share for giving me the opportunity to meet Maeve and her family."
"Saoirse from Elder Home Share is so professional and supportive. Saoirse paired my mother with a lovely companion who at all times was very helpful, reliable and trustworthy. I would have no hesitation recommending Saoirse and her business."
"Very happy with the Elderhomeshare service and the excellent match provided. Our companion is a very pleasant addition to the household"
"Overall very good match. Appears honest and trustworthy and provides peace of mind that my father has someone to look out for him in case of emergency during the night.' Happiness - 9 out of 10! "
Our family engaged with Elder Home Share, back in February 2020. We found the process and the companion to be seamless. I would high recommend to anyone to talk to Saoirse and she how you can be assisted as a family looking for help and assistance
Keep going Saoirse
My Mum has been supported by a companion for the last year through Elder Home Share and it has allowed her to stay at home and been a great support to her. The companion has been supportive in so many ways and gone beyond her brief. So we as a family have appreciated it enormously.
Elder Home Share has been professional and supportive throughout the year and I would highly recommend them where an elder is fairly independent but is looking for security, safety and companionship.
Saoirse was very insightful and knew from her own experience the kind of person who would work best for us. My mum felt safe and cared for in her last years because of the companion she found through Elder Home Share. I highly recommend this service.
It was a very hard time last year when Elizabeth's husband passed away very suddenly. Elizabeth didn't want to leave her home as she had built so many happy memories there and we came across this programme which seemed like a blessing. It has made my mother in laws transition of a life without her husband a little bit easier knowing she is not in the house on her own at night. Saoirse is very thorough and listens and understands what kind of home share companion you are looking for. Saoirse always checks to see all is going well and she is very easy to speak to.
A right place to live with the right people is the most important for everyone. Thanks to this wonderful programme that I can live a worry-free life in Dublin (where house renting could have been so high).
LUCY LIU, VETTED HOME SHARE COMPANION
Outstanding service. As a customer, I can say the home companion arrangement helps my parent to stay in her house with a greater quality of life than the alternative of a Care Home.
Elder Home Share has helped me to live and live well in the city in a structured and calm environment. I've enjoyed getting to know my elderly home share match and have settled quite well into the arrangement. It suits me very well and I recommend it highly to suitable people.
Having just moved to Dublin to continue my studies, I was disheartened at the lack of decent, affordable accommodation available. A friend of mine had heard of elderhomeshare.ie and passed along the information to me. I was lucky enough to find a suitable homeowner with a few days and luckier still to find a suitable place in a matter of weeks.
Saoirse’s professionalism and eye for detail ensured that both parties felt secure and protected while at the same time her easy manner guaranteed that any and all queries were handled with kindness, consideration and efficiency.
Overall I found Saoirse’s ingeniously original and wonderful idea to be very suitable for me. I am absent from the house 80% of the time and was looking for a quiet, comfortable space to pursue my studies as well as meet new and different people to share a home with.
