Close working relationship with family members/carers.

We carry out the selection and matching process to find the best Homesharer. All prospective Homesharers are interviewed, reference and Criminal Records Bureau checked. Once we have found a match for you, an Agreement is set up between the Householder and Homesharer.

The Householder offers a bedroom and share of the home’s facilities in return for about 10 hours a week of practical support, such as cooking, and light housework. An important feature is that the Homesharer is present 7 days a week.

Homesharers continue their regular employment and or studies during the day. The 10 hours help they provide is spread across 3 – 4 evenings a week with a little on the weekend. The Homesharer have 3 evenings away per week to themselves, although they still sleep in the house to provide the security. Once a month Homesharer have a week end away from Friday back Sunday.
