Amy’s 90 year-old father Sam is a Homesharing Provider. He is a veteran and has always been fiercely independent, but as the years passed, it became clear to their family that in order for him to remain in his own home, he would require some additional assistance with daily tasks like meal preparation, grocery shopping, laundry, and various household activities. They reached out to Homesharing, Inc.
After several meetings, question & answer discussions, references and paperwork, Sam was very optimistic! Together, Amy and Sam interviewed several people. HomeSharing guided them through the process of searching for just the right match for Sam. They suggested questions to ask the Seeker, such as “Do you smoke?” and “Do you have food allergies?”. HomeSharing addressed all aspects of the living arrangement, including shared spaces, household expenses, and responsibilities for each person.
According to Amy, the Seeker (Mary) has been a wonderful addition to her father’s home. Without the Seeker’s assistance it would be a struggle for Amy to keep Sam living in his own home and still manage her own life. Mary has provided friendship to not only Sam, but to Amy’s family, as well. Mary gives Sam assistance in immeasurable ways, keeping Amy informed when he is not feeling well, selecting his favorite foods at the grocery store, taking him on occasional outings, bringing him library books, helping with small household repairs… even assisting him with computer tech issues!
Mary is a compassionate and caring person, and Amy cannot imagine what life would be like for Sam without her! Amy is in touch with her father almost every day and has noticed that he is much more relaxed, confident about being in his own home, more talkative, and overall happier since sharing a home with Mary.
