My family is considering the option of home sharing for my 80 year old mom. She would like to put off moving from her 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo to assisted living. She currently needs several hours weekly of home aide help, mostly related to difficulties with mobility and physical household tasks. Also, she's feeling more socially isolated in recent years, in terms of visits from friends and such. On paper it seems that sharing her home with another senior female would offer many benefits such as sharing expenses, companionship, and could help her stay in her home longer before moving to AL. We know there are pros and cons. We haven't broached the subject with her yet, but will shortly. In the meantime I'd like to hear of anyone's experiences with home sharing.
