Share and Care PhotoShare & Care is a homeshare organisation which specialises in placing live-in Sharers or live-out Visitors with Homeowners - often widows, widowers or elderly couples - who need some practical help and companionship. As well as providing a valuable service to Homeowners, it also relieves young professionals and students from some of their financial burden by helping with affordable accommodation and friendship, or a supplement to their income, while giving something back to the community. It can therefore be rewarding and beneficial to both parties.

  • A live-in Sharer is a very low-cost way - just £150 per month (plus VAT from January 2014) - of having on-going help in the home, and company. The service offers Homeowners the reassurance of having someone sleeping in their house. Sharers have their normal job or studies, but when they are at home will give friendship and companionship. They will also undertake about 10 hours of practical tasks during each week, such as shopping, cooking, cleaning, changing light bulbs or accompanying on outings.
  • Live-out Visitors are ideal for those who only need a few hours help each week, who don't have a spare bedroom, or who prefer the privacy of living on their own. Live-out Visitors offer a flexible approach to having practical help and companionship; it's up to the Homeowner to decide how many hours they'd like their Visitor to come each week, and what practical help they may need during that time.

Share & Care pays great attention to the personalities of Homeowners looking for help, and works hard to find Sharers and Visitors who share similar interests so friendships can develop.

To quote one of Share & Care's clients [L.B. London]: "Caroline and Olivia are a super team and so caring I feel I can rely on them at any time. The two girls they have found me are a great success and have given me back my confidence. I am so well looked-after now, and I feel I have made some super new friends."
