Florence is 95, she’s partially sighted, an RAF veteran and used to be a keen tennis player. She has a 27-year old homesharer, Alexandra. Hear about their experience of Homesharing.
Homeshare helps people to stay independent in the places they love to live and builds community connections. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement with both people having something they need and something to give.
Homeshare brings two people together to share a home; typically, someone who needs help to live independently in their own home (a householder) is matched with someone who has a housing need (a homesharer). In return for affordable accommodation, the homesharer provides around ten hours of support per week to the householder.
