Homeshare in Poulton, GL7
Would you like to share the home of a friendly couple in their early 90s? They love reading, poetry, gardening, philosophy and woodwork.
The bungalow is located in the lovely village of Poulton, on a quiet road. The neighbours are very pleasant and there are plenty of walking opportunities with the forest directly behind the garden. A driver is a must, as there are no bus routes through the village. Fairford is 5 minutes’ drive away and Cirencester only 15 minutes away. The bungalow boasts two lounges, kitchen, as well as a conservatory and lovely surrounding garden. The bedroom is large with two single beds (can be made into a double), 2 wardrobes, chest of drawers and desk. The Sharer would have almost the sole use of one of the bathrooms. There is private parking at the front of the property.
This would suit a friendly, tidy, helpful person who would enjoy sharing company, chatting over a cuppa and perhaps cooking and eating some meals together (the householders are vegetarian). Having someone in the house at night time (minimum 5 nights/week) and help with the weekly shopping is very important. The would also like help with putting the bins out, hanging the washing, sweeping parts of the courtyard and other odd jobs that may arise. They already have a cleaner and a gardener.
Homesharing is a low cost arrangement because you give ten hours of your time each week helping with practical tasks, providing some companionship, and giving overnight security and reassurance for the householder. In return, you get a room in a safe environment with low outgoings.
Homesharing is a lifestyle choice and is suited to emotionally mature, reliable people. If you have the energy and commitment at the end of your normal day to spend some of your evenings and weekends engaging with the householder and helping out, we would like to hear from you. For more information, please contact Age UK Gloucestershire.
We have a thorough interview process and will need good references and a DBS check before we can introduce you to the householder.
