The Room Xchange
Why did we choose this Partner?
An innovative social enterprise to share housing with older Australians. Many women over the age of 55 years are experiencing housing insecurity. This is likely to solve the issue.
The Room Xchange's values are aligned with DR Care Solutions' values in the support of our seniors.
Why should you choose them?
"Many people ageing at home are often doing so alone and usually have at least one unused spare bedroom.
Loneliness is a growing epidemic amongst the elderly community and house-sharing not only provides companionship for your aged loved one, but also some additional income and/or help around the house.
Our process begins with technological verification of all users with a Digital ID by Australia Post which creates a safe and secure community. Our profiles make it easy to be matched based on personality, values and lifestyle. Homeowners can choose a traditional rental option or a rent offset option, giving them the choice to ask for help around the house to offset some or all of the rent.
We know that inviting someone to share your home is a deeply human and personal experience. As such, The Room Xchange service is built on the principle of "digital when you want it, people when you don't". We use our technology to match housemates with potential homeowners on the basis of personality, values and lifestyle. When necessary, we also have a range of "Done For You" services to help with the matching and placement process."
Points of Difference:
"All users, including households offering a room, must have a Digital ID by Australia Post. This is part of our profile building system so you don't need to go anywhere to get it and we cover the cost. We are the only house-sharing platform in Australia that has mandatory verification.
We have a range of people who are looking for somewhere to rent. They range in age from 25 to 70, male and female, so you can live with someone who suits your personality and interests.
Our rent offset model is also unique to The Room Xchange. Being able to utilise your bedroom in the way that is best for your house is a highly valuable opportunity. Do you need the cash? Then ask for rent for the room. Do you need help around the house? Then you can offset part or all of the rent by negotiating household help. It's a win-win for both parties."
How They Can Help
In what ways can they help?
The Room Xchange services operate all across Australia. Take a look at this testimonial:
"I didn't want to go to a nursing home. I wanted to stay in my own home with my wonderful friends and neighbours around me. Sharing my house with Lyndsay gave me peace of mind knowing I had someone here should I need it."
- Maggie, 90 year old retiree, Brisbane.
