“I can honestly say that living with my senior host has changed my entire outlook. Everyday I find out how much I can learn from and care about someone outside of my own generation. It's really added to my life in a very positive way.”
Janice H., Age 23 AlyceMate Renter
“I've lived alone since my husband passed away 10 years ago, because it's so hard to find a dependable and safe roommate! AlyceMates is a wonderful and innovative solution to this problem. They found someone I'm very compatible with!”
Emma D., age 78 Senior Host
“AlyceMates actually came to my home and got to know me before we even talked about a housemate. When they say "full service," that's exactly what they mean. They're not a listing site; they take care of you every step of the way.”
Eunice K., Age 81 Senior Host

What are the benefits for Seniors & Young People?
For Seniors: Living alone can be very detrimental to a person's health, especially after the age of 55. AlyceMates aims to eradicate senior isolation by helping seniors share their homes! Seniors can make a great income and really contribute to another person's life!
For Young People: AlyceMate renters are able to do a great service to the community by bringing energy, life, and companionship into a senior's home. Best of all, AlyceMates can live in amazing neighborhoods at a fraction of the cost, and all utilites are included with a private bedroom!
How long are leases?
Leases are usually 12 months long.
What duties do AlyceMate Renters have?
AlyceMate renters are oftentimes college students or young adults just starting their careers. The average age is between 20-35 years old. The only duty they have is to be a respectful, mature and quiet roommate. However, we do ask that they donate 10 hours per month of companionship with the senior-host. That could mean watching television, having a meal or going shopping! Find something fun to do together!
What are the Requirements?
Seniors should be over age 50, and have a spare private bedroom to share. Their home and neighborhood should be safe.
For renters, a full background check will be conducted by us, including credit and reference check.
Most of all, an open, positive, and sharing attitude is required for both parties!
What if I don't like my roommate?
Because of how much time and resources we place in the matchmaking process, these issues are almost always avoided. However, if for any reason the living situation is not working out, our contracts allow us to adjust the living situation, provided that both parties agree to the adjustment.
Does the Service Cost Money?
AlyceMates is FREE for seniors and renters!
Where does the name AlyceMates come from?
Alyce is the name of our grandmother, who suffered from isolation after the death of her husband. Everything we do is inspired by her!
