Socialising > Homesharing
Homesharing arrangements offer elderly people live-in security and companionship. Homesharing providers match elderly householders who have a spare room to homesharers who are willing to give the householder some support and companionship in return for low cost accommodation. Homesharers are generally young people who are students or who work, who undertake to stay overnight, socialise with the older person and help with household tasks such as shopping, cleaning, caring for pets, and gardening. Older people can benefit from homesharing because it provides security, reassurance, companionship, and affordability because they don’t have to pay for the services the homesharer provides.
