What is HomeSharing?
HomeSharing is the Future of Independent Living & Home Support In Ireland
Homeshare is a simple concept with numerous and wide-ranging benefits for all participants. Householders are people who have a home they are open to sharing but require a little support and companionship in return.
Householders with a room to spare are carefully matched, with Garda vetted accommodation seekers (Homesharers). Based on their support requirements, shared interests, and personality. The Homesharer provides 10 hours of practical support and companionship as well as an overnight presence each week in exchange for their accommodation.
The support provided by the Homesharer focuses on companionship as well as providing an overnight presence in the home for security and peace of mind (minimum 5/6 nights p/w), whilst also supporting with daily living tasks such as household chores, shopping, gardening, and meal preparation.
Homesharers support with many tasks, however, they do not provide personal care and are not a replacement for live in carers or housekeepers. Homesharing is an agreement between the Householder and the Homesharer and is supported by THE HomeShare who provide on-going monitoring and support for the duration of the arrangement.
