Benefits Home Sharing:

In a home sharing arrangement, home providers can gain extra income, companionship, and household help, which can be especially useful for older adults but works for people of all ages. Renters gain more affordable housing opportunities and can save on rent. Shared living supports “whole person” health, enabling people to create meaningful relationships and address social isolation, a known determinant of health equal to smoking fifteen cigarettes a day.
