Security At Night Benefits of Home Share

According to HSE.ie falls among older people can cause life changing consequences. It is more likely for an older person to suffer dangerous injuries, both physical and psychological, when having a fall. With age the risk increases and one out of three older people fall every year. As our population ages the number of falls and injuries in this age group will increase.

Elder Home Share carries a mission of providing needed help around the house, as well as friendship, and, most importantly, security at night. The major worry of our clients is having a parent or a closed one fall when there is nobody in the house. It can be very dangerous and lead to serious life threatening consequences. Solution to that is having someone around, it can prevent these kinds of situations, provide security and peace of mind to the next of kin.

“My mother lives in her own home and we wanted to keep her there as securely and happily as possible. Now she is well settled with her new companion who brings a whole new dimension to Mam's daily life and the security of a presence in the home at night.” says Angela Lambert.

The process of finding that perfect home share match who will put your mind at ease and be the best company for your loved one is the main goal of Elder home Share. The founder of the company Saoirse is a home share companion herself which allows her to understand what it takes and meet the needs of a homeowner throughout the collaboration. She mentioned that she spent 3 birthdays with David, a homeowner, including his 100th birthday. It is truly amazing to see the development of the relationships and how much impact it makes when it comes to the safety of people’s lives.
