Headington Homeshare with older person
Would you like to share the peaceful home of an older person in Oxford’s Old Headington, just a stone’s throw from the John Radcliffe hospital?
The householder has led an active life and originally came to Oxford to teach Crafts on an Occupational Therapy course - including pottery, basketry and letter press printing. She has an interest in music and singing and has enjoyed attending many different classes and concerts over the years. She is a member of her local church and has been active in the local community.
The Householder’s husband has recently moved into a care home and she is not used to being on her own. She would enjoy company and would value the reassurance of someone being around, especially at night.
Poor balance, risk of falls, and poor mobility prevent the Householder from doing much of what she has done in the past. The Householder also has poor eyesight owing to a rare eye condition. She has daily support visits to help with some meals and practical tasks and has a regular assistance with cleaning and gardening.
First and foremost, the householder is looking to a Homeshare arrangement for companionship. Some help with things around the house, bits of shopping, potentially some cooking and other errands would also be appreciated. A car driver would be desirable as lifts would be helpful from time to time.
This Homeshare would suit a female who is sensitive and attentive and who shared some of the Householder’s interests – books, crafts and music. Someone who was often around in the evenings and would be happy to spend a bit of time together, maybe watching some TV ( current affairs, documentaries, and some film, drama and the odd reality show,) would be ideal.
The Householder is vaccinated and is still being cautious in the light of COVID. The Sharer should be double vaccinated.
