Homeshare in Stroud, GL5
Are you looking for affordable accommodation while being available 10 hours per week to provide practical support and some companionship to an elderly person? Would you like to share the home of a friendly and chatty 85-year-old lady, who is a former accomplished artist and singer? She loves listening to Radio 4 and 4 Extra, likes a good conversation and is overall a very sociable person.
The Householder has carers going in every day but would welcome the reassurance of having a Sharer there, especially in the evenings and at night-time. There is no personal care required, just companionship and cooking. The ideal Sharer would be happy to cook and eat meals with the Householder 5-6 times per week (ideally in the evening), collect prescriptions, help with weekly shopping and any ad-hoc jobs. She would also appreciate a cup of tea in the morning. The Householder would prefer having a cooked meal at lunchtime, but it happy for this to be prepared the previous day and left in the fridge.
The Householder is allergic to cats, but is willing to accept a non-shedding, non-barking, well-behaved dog with the Sharer. She would prefer a mature female Sharer, someone with an open mind and empathy, who will appreciate the Householder’s need for independence.
The cottage is located less than 5 minutes away from Stroud Hospital and the Centre. There is on street residential parking. The terrace cottage is an old property and quite quirky, with a steep staircase. A double bedroom with an extra room at the top of the house is available for the right person. The extra room could be an office or a sitting room. The Householder’s family are happy to arrange it according to the Sharer’s wishes. The Sharer would have their own bathroom with a bathtub, but there is also separate shower available (which the family use when visiting).
A contribution of £75/month is required from the Sharer, to go towards Council Tax and utility bills.
This Homeshare opportunity is advertised on behalf of the Householder. We carry out reference checks and an enhanced DBS check prior to introducing you to the Householder.
