Abstract: 

Homesharing is a living arrangement in which two or more unrelated persons occupy a single dwelling, each having some private space but sharing common areas such as kitchen, bathroom and living room. This report describes findings from a study which examined the objectives, services, operational characteristics and clientele of 18 Canadian agencies which help older persons to make suitable homesharing arrangements.
