Homesharing as a Householder
If you live in Bath, Bristol or the surrounding areas 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 another person will give you the reassurance of having a responsible adult in your home overnight, plus ten hours of their time each week for company and help with those tasks that are becoming less manageable. This might include cleaning, shopping, cooking, gardening, or even walking the dog! Homesharing offers a low-cost alternative to moving into sheltered accommodation. In return you welcome the Sharer into your home, providing them with a reasonable sized bedroom,and use of the facilities with the reassurance of a stable, friendly atmosphere.
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 monthly cost of £150 for the service, a tiny fraction of typical overnight care agency rates. For further information please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions.
