Holdsworth recently launched a pilot of their innovative HomeShare program. Holdsworth HomeShare matches older people who are living alone with a room to spare with a younger person who is happy to provide companionship in return for affordable accommodation.
HomeShare is a mutually beneficial arrangement. The owner of the home receives companionship increased safety and security, improved wellbeing and the ability to remain in their own home. The younger Sharer has access to safe, secure and affordable housing close to work or study, companionship and a connection to the local community.
Holdsworth as the HomeShare Provider facilitates the matching process, conducts police and safety checks, assists the match to build an agreement and then is available to both the Owner and Sharer to provide ongoing safeguards and checks throughout their time together.
