Homesharing as a Householder

If you live in Bath or Bristol and could do with some practical support in order to stay living safely and independently at home, you might want to think about Homesharing as a solution.

Homesharing with a younger person will give you the reassurance of having a responsible adult in your home overnight, plus ten hours of their time each week for companionship and to help with everyday tasks like cleaning, shopping, cooking, gardening, or even walking the dog! In return, you provide the Sharer with a stable, homely atmosphere, friendship, their own bedroom, and use of the facilities in your home.

The carefully vetted Sharers are reliable, kind, mature adults who like helping others. They are often professional people over the age of 30, working or studying, perhaps new to the area, sometimes from abroad.

There is a small monthly cost for the service, a tiny fraction of typical overnight care agency rates. For more information on costs, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions section.

If you would like to explore the possibility of homesharing further, please call us on 01225 22 00 85 or 0117 908 3045 for an informal and confidential chat.
