“Each compatible match is unique and based upon the interests, needs, and lifestyles of the individuals involved. It is up to people in the program to decide who they want to live with. HomeShare staff is with you every step of the way.”
“We stay involved throughout the duration of the match. We check in regularly. We are always available if you have concerns, want to talk through a homesharing issue, or are simply ready to move on and want help having that conversation.”
HomeShare Vermont provides background checks and references, interviews, a match based on needs and preferences, a housing agreement and ongoing support while a match lives together.
Homeshare agreements can range from a housemate who only provides rent to one that provides help with tasks and errands such as transportation, yard work, pet care, meal preparation and more.
In addition to help with errands, a homeshare agreement can help elderly feel safe in their own home or in someone else’s home, provide additional rental income or a reduced rent, and feel less isolated and lonely.
Seniors who own their own home can be matched with a younger individual who is provided with an affordable housing option and an opportunity to help the elderly live comfortably in their own home.
