Find A Home

Are you looking for affordable accommodation? Can you offer a few hours of companionship each week to the older householder?

Is Homeshare Right For Me

Who benefits from a Homeshare arrangement?

  • A full time professional or full time student who not only wants to save money by not paying high rents, but also wants to make a difference in someone’s life
  • We are especially interested in hearing from those from a health sciences or community service background (medicine, nursing, social workers, OT’s, physio’s, paramedics, Gardai, fire fighter’s etc…)
  • A person who wants to live closer to their place of work or college
  • A person who wants to live in an area they may not normally afford or consider

Would This Work For Me?

A Homeshare arrangement may not be for everyone. It is important that you consider the following questions

  • Why do I want to share a home with someone?
  • Where do I want to live?
  • Am I willing to adhere to the Homeshare Agreement that I will be included in deciding the details of?
  • Am I willing to provide 10 hours per week of non-personal support to the Householder in exchange for accommodation?
  • Do I invite friends/family over to my place of residence to socialise? Am I willing to commit to socialising outside the home?
  • Do I need furnished or unfurnished accommodation?
  • What are my shortcomings that may present difficulties to anyone living with me?
