Homeshare – East Finchley, London N2

We are pleased to offer an opportunity to live affordably and comfortably in East Finchley in north London in return for providing some practical support and companionship to an older lady.

Available from: January 2022

Homeshare Location:

A 10 to 15 minute walk to East Finchley tube station or a quick bus journey to Highgate tube (Northern Line).

Accommodation on Offer:

A cosy bedroom in a well maintained flat with small double bed, wardrobe desk and chair, shared use of bathroom, kitchen and living room and communal garden. There is Wifi.

What the Opportunity involves:

In return for the low-cost accommodation (£199 pm), we are looking to match our older homeowner with a mature female Sharer who can provide some practical support around the home, a little companionship and reassurance that someone is there at night. No personal care is permitted.

Our homeowner is in her mid 90s and still fairly independent. Having lived an active life as a volunteer which involved lots of travel over many years, she now lives a quieter life and is mostly at home. She enjoys spending time speaking to and seeing family, watching classical music shows on TV and good conversation but she finds it quite lonely being alone so much.

The ideal Sharer will be working or studying partly from home, and will be kind and compassionate and a non-smoker. The homeowner does have some memory issues and can be forgetful at times so some experience or understanding of living with somebody with short-term memory problems would be preferable.

Cost: £199 per month

This fee is a monthly facilitation fee for our matching and ongoing monitoring service. You do not pay rent to the homeowner. Bills are included however you may need to make a small contribution towards council tax if you are working. (Full-time students are exempt).

We are looking to match this opportunity soon so if you’re interested, please get in touch and tell us about yourself and what you would be well suited to this Homeshare.
