This is a new Homeshare opportunity for someone to live affordably in north London, in return for providing an older person with a reassuring presence at night and some companionship.
What the opportunity involves:
In return for the low-cost accommodation, we are looking to match a kind female Sharer to live in with our elderly homeowner who seeks a little companionship and some practical support such as grocery shopping, local errands, but mostly peace of mind that someone else is there at night. No personal-care is required or permitted.
Our homeowner is an elderly lady who is still fairly active and independent. She goes for a walk daily on her own and she enjoys classical music, interesting conversation and spending time with her family and friends. Having enjoyed a busy and interesting life involving volunteering and lots of travel, she has a fairly simple routine these days, and can feel quite lonely at times.
Her ideal Sharer will be kind, patient, companionable, non-smoking who will have had both Covid vaccinations. Somebody who is working or studying partly from home, who can share the odd cup of tea or meal, the occasional walk together or some time in an evening watching a documentary or a classical music programme would be well suited.
Cost: £199 per month
This is a monthly facilitation fee for our matching and ongoing monitoring service. You do not pay the rent to the homeowner. Bills are included however you may need to contribute towards council tax £50 per month. (Full-time students are exempt from council tax.)
We are social enterprise facilitating Homeshare matches in London and across the UK. We match people who live alone and need some practical support and a bit of company, with mature adults wanting affordable accommodation and a safe place to live.
Please get in touch ASAP if this is an opportunity for you and tell us why. Thank you.
