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 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 10 hours of practical tasks during the week, such as shopping, cooking, cleaning, changing light bulbs or accompanying on outings.
  • London fees are £150 + VAT per month [ie total £180 per month], under £6 per day.
  • In other UK cities and London suburbs our fees are £125 + VAT per month [ie £150], under £5 per day.
  • In more rural country areas our fees are £100 + VAT per month [ie £120], under £4 per day.
  • Live-out Visitors available in Central London 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 “I wanted to say thank you to both of you for all your great work on behalf of my mother. We couldn't have found a better agency to help us: You were generous with your time and effort, always understanding and responsive to our needs, wonderful listeners and so kind to my mother and to us - as well as being extremely professional! It was very comforting to know you were 'there' through this difficult and challenging time with my mother. You made a very large contribution to our ability to keep her at home as long as we did!  As you know, I have already recommended you to several friends and will always be glad to do so in the future.”
