Home Share Program - Senior Services For The South Sound

HomeShareGraphic6.2017

What is Home Share?

A home provider offers accommodations to a home seeker in exchange for an agreed level of support in the form of financial exchange, assistance with household tasks, or simple companionships.

 

Why Should I Provide a Home or be a Home Share Housemate?

Home sharing reduces housing expenses, offers companionship, promotes independence, and increases security for both the home seeker and home provider. Home sharing makes efficient use of existing housing availability, helps preserve the fabric of the neighborhood and can lessen the need for costly chore/care services or long-term institutional care. 

 

Home Does Senior Services Help?
Case managers interview and screen all applicants for compatibility of lifestyles and personalities, and the reciprocal needs of home providers and seekers. In addition, references are contacted and criminal background checks are performed. Potential home sharers negotiate their own living arrangements and regular follow-up services and conflict resolutions are provided.
