Host Family and Homesharers

Host Family:

If you or your loved one require more holistic support on either a long term or short term basis, host family arrangements provide an opportunity for a person to be welcomed into a family home and become part of regular family life. This can either be on a full or part time basis. These arrangements can also provide an opportunity to learn the skills of daily life in a natural environment.


If you or your loved one would benefit from having a person living with them to provide company, safety or support with daily life, a homesharer may be the answer. Homesharers provide low level support in exchange for living rent free in your home. Enable WA can help you find the right match and ensure that the person has the qualities you are looking for.
