About Us

HomeSharing is a Person-Centered and Bespoke Arrangement

Homesharing is one of the most affordable and safest ways for our ageing population to remain living independently at home and also a way to offer a lifeline to struggling renters, helping to pave the way for future generations. THE HomeShare is Ireland’s only Not for Profit HomeShare programme.

Most older people wish to remain at home, living as independently as possible. However in many cases, HSE support is not enough to fulfill this wish. HomeSharing compliments existing supports and helps to ease the burden of worry for not only the older person/person with a disability, but also their families and accommodation seekers who are facing exorbitant rent increases across Ireland.

As no two people are the same, we provide a person-centered face-to-face process taking into account all aspects of our Householders and Homesharer’s needs, personalities and interests, so that we can create happy and lasting matches.

THE HomeShare is Irelands premier HomeShare programme with over 80 years combined team experience in the Health and Homecare sector. Established in 2017 by CEO Lucie Cunningham, THE HomeShare has worked closely with hundreds of families to support them through their Homeshare journeys. Our CEO works closely with government departments and policy makers and we are delighted our efforts have resulted in HomeSharing being incorporated into National Policy, making Ireland the first country in the world to do so.


To create positive homesharing experiences between older and
 younger adults in Ireland, that inspires mutually beneficial social and practical supports and empowers independent living. 


For homesharing to become a lifestyle choice that enhances positive ageing and develops deep intergenerational social ties.
