Homeshare w/ an older person in Church Hanborough

Ad ref# 16071440

TO EXPRESS YOUR INTEREST IN THIS OPPORTUNITY, AND TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT HOMESHARING, PLEASE CONTACT US VIA THE HOMESHARE OXFORDSHIRE WEBPAGE.

Sharing with an active, independent and friendly retired architect in his late sixties, offering ensuite accommodation in the annex of a lovely Cotswolds cottage.

The Householder is interested in art, history and enjoys reading, radio and films, documentaries and news on TV. He regularly goes for long walks, plays golf and tennis on a regular basis and is a keen skier.

Although still active, having recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, the Householder finds certain tasks more of a challenge. He has lived on his own for the past 10 years and values quiet time alone but would now enjoy regular company and to feel reassured that that there is someone around. He has a very supportive family who visit occasionally but who do not live close by.

Help with household chores, tidying and a little day to day admin and IT help would be great. Someone who enjoys food, would be happy to cook several times a week and share good conversation over an evening meal would be much appreciated. A dog-lover who would be happy to help with occasional dog walking and dog-sitting from time to time is essential!

This opportunity would suit someone easy going, friendly, independent and sensitive, who would enjoy interesting and good-natured company whilst being happy to help in the ways outlined above. It would best suit someone who worked from home, at least part of the time, or had flexibility in their schedule. It would not be suitable for someone away from the house for long working days. Although the Householder is still currently driving, someone with a driving license and able to give the odd lift from time to time would be ideal.

The Householder is usually away few times a year for around a long weekend or week, during when dog-sitting could be welcomed. The dog is a very good natured 8-year-old rescue-Labrador who likes two daily walks and doesn’t like to be left alone – so ideally the Sharer would be able to work from home (or possibly take the dog to work!) when dog-sitting is required.

The Householder is fully vaccinated and sensibly cautious. The Sharer should also be fully vaccinated, and willing to take precautions to avoid exposure to the virus and adhere to COVID regulations.

The cottage is in the peaceful village of Church Hanborough, on the edge of the Cotswolds, 7 miles from Oxford and 6 miles from Witney. Nearby Long Hanborough rail station connects to Oxford (6 minutes) and London (60 minutes).

The accommodation offered is in a small annex with small ensuite bathroom, mezzanine office/living space and connects to a large shared kitchen.
