The Homeshare Opportunity

A well-spoken 88-year-old lady who lives alone is offering a double bedroom in her lovely home in exchange for 10 hours of support and companionship each week.

Located in a quiet residential area, close to green spaces, shops and with great transport links to central London, this Homeshare would suit a kind, young adult who is studying for a Masters or PHD, or working in London. If you are looking for a low-cost, safe environment and are happy to give some time and support, this Homeshare could be for you.

This lady is keen to have a live-in Sharer to provide peace of mind that someone is in the home with her at night. She would also like to share her home with someone who would be happy to cook her an evening meal on a few evenings each week, and help her to use her iPad so she can enjoy looking at family photographs. A little daily companionship, including a few hours on the weekend, and an offer of a cup of tea in the mornings and at bedtime will go down a treat!

Our homeowner enjoys a good conversation about current affairs and is an avid follower of the news, regularly reading the Sunday papers from front to back. She enjoys watching tv particularly detective and animal programmes and likes reading. She is a fluent French speaker and speaks a little Italian.

Sadly, she suffers from osteoarthritis which is quite painful and she is not able to get out that much but her two daughters and grandchildren visit and call her often. A cleaner also comes to the house regularly.

The spare room available has a double bed, a wardrobe and desk. The Homeshare fee payable for this accommodation is:

Cost: £199 per month

(plus possible contribution to council tax of £25 per month although students are exempt).
