SeniorHomeshares.com is a free, nationwide housemate service specifically for older adults. We match seniors who have extra room in their homes with seniors who are looking for safe, affordable housing. Senior Homeshares is a non-profit, and needs your help to continue offering this essential service.
The Problem We Address
As our aging population grows, but salaries and retirement income do not, the high cost of housing can cause older adults to cut back on essentials such as food and medicine. Meanwhile, scientists are documenting what most of us intuitively know: living alone simply isn't good for us. In a society where multi-generational households are not the norm, the growing number of alone elderly has social, psychological, health and financial consequences.
How We Help
One potential solution for many older Americans is to share a home. We help seniors to do just that: share their homes, reduce their expenses and create a safer and healthier living situation.
Why We're Different
Unlike other online services, we serve only seniors. Also, because we are a nonprofit - and because of your generosity - we offer our service for free, nationwide.
