Navigating Level 5 with Elder Home Share
Feelings of isolation and loneliness have been heightened due to covid, especially amongst elderly people living alone. Alone Ireland have concluded that 55% of their callers struggling with isolation during the lockdown were over 70 and cocooning alone. It's great to see how Elder Home Share matches have been able to navigate through this difficult time together. Our matches at Elder Home Share help beat the lockdown loneliness for our elderly.
Some of our adorable homeshare matches have been cocooning with each other through both the lockdowns this year. One match in particular has proven to be a source of inspiration and humor to everyone with their unique relationship and capacity to manage a difficult time with some good old fashioned laughter. Click here for a peek into the life of this delightful duo. It'll really make you laugh!
It’s definitely been a difficult year for families in the decision making around sourcing a match for an elderly loved one. But the feedback from families, home owners and companions has been positive in regards to having a match in place during the past months. The most recent feedback from a family was wonderful to hear!. “Mum loves her new companion. She’s delighted having her round the house and feels very well cared for.”
