We also provide Homeshare services in London and surrounding areas. This service is suitable for someone who need very little help at home or overnight security. Careaid specialises in placing live-in Homesharers or live-out Visitors with Homeowners.
Homeshare is a concept that helps someone who needs a little help on a daily basis to live independently in their own home. Usually they are accompanied by someone in need of accommodation and will be available to fulfil the small needs of the house owner. This facilitates two people to resolve their problem of housing needs and the need of help at home, company or overnight security. Those who need help at home called “Householder” and those who are willing to help called “Homesharer”.
Homesharer will live in the house almost free of cost and in return he/she will help out around the house; including providing accompany, cleaning, shopping, other household tasks, preparing meals and so on. Usually a young student or someone with modest earning becomes a ‘Homesharer’.
Homesharing is making a noteworthy contribution to the support needs of many older people. Homesharing has enriched the lives of householders and Homesharers in a similar way.
The Householder usually offers a bedroom with shared or separate bathroom and kitchen facilities for free of charge.The Homesharer in return provides 10 hours pre agreed household works like companionship cooking, cleaning, Ironing, shopping, gardening, etc. Homesharer spend 5 to 6 nights per week in that accommodation. They are free to work or study in their own time.
Initially the reason behind Homeshare was to support older people to help them to stay at their own house independently. The main beneficiaries are:
Householders offer a low cost accommodation to Homesharers in return for ten hours of help each week. There is a small administration fee to pay to Careaid who will arrange to match a Homeshare with a Householder.
Homeshares are encouraged to continue with their day time occupation, but they will have to sleep in the house six nights out of seven. The minimum time for homesharing is six months.
We find potential Householders and Homesharers.
At the moment Careaid Homeshare operates in London and surrounding areas with the aim of extending services to all over the UK.
The householders and Homesharers both pay an £100 each per month to us for our administrative costs. The Homesharers may require sharing the additional utility & household bill.
