Homeshare Homesharer

Homeshare York matches an older homeowner (the ‘Householder’) with a younger person (the ‘Homesharer’).

Your role as a Homesharer

For a small monthly contribution, Homeshare York can match you with someone who'll provide you with a room in their home in return for some support to help them stay independent.

They may need:

  • practical help, such as cooking, shopping or cleaning
  • some company at home
  • the reassurance of someone in the house overnight

You won't be expected to provide any personal care - you can agree the support you'll provide in advance with the Householder.

We’ll always try to match you with a Householder we think you’ll get on well with, and there'll be plenty of opportunity to get to know each other before moving in.

We make every match based on:

  • skills
  • interests
  • preferences

You can be confident we can find the right person for you as we:

  • interview all Householders
  • assess each home for suitability
  • continue to support you throughout the process to make sure everything’s going well
