Bringing Homeshare to Clarion residents

Clarion

“Now I have a homesharer, my middle-aged children feel reassured because there is someone else in the house with me.” – Householder

Would you like some company at home? Someone to share a meal with…

Homeshare brings together people with spare rooms with people who are happy to chat and lend a hand around the house in return for affordable, sociable accommodation.

We’ve partnered with Homeshare UK to offer you the opportunity to take part in a mutually beneficial shared living arrangement with the support of a dedicated Homeshare Co-ordinator. You must be over the age of 55 to be considered.

Want a little extra help around the house or just some friendly company?

As a householder, you could need some daily living support which will be provided by the homesharer. This includes tasks such as cleaning, shopping, cooking, gardening, overnight reassurance, and providing companionship, but no personal care is involved. They will provide up to 10 hours per week of practical support, whilst living sociably - sharing life, time, skills, and experience.

You will be matched with a homesharer based on their interests, lifestyles, and requirements. Thorough safeguarding checks will be carried out and ongoing support provided to both parties by the Homeshare Co-ordinator.

As a Clarion resident, this opportunity will be free of charge. You would also expect to see savings on household bills and similar domestic help that they may have otherwise needed. Householders will not receive any rent, however each resident’s individual social and financial situation will be worked through, to maximise the positive outcomes.

“It’s given me a new perspective on life and even though I hate to admit it I do need a bit of extra help round the house – I’m not getting any younger!” – Householder, London
