Homeshare in Tetbury, GL8
Would you like to share the home of a friendly and chatty 79-year-old man? He has many interests, including cooking, gardening, DIY, travelling, archaeology, geology, ancient history, photography, architecture, WW2, oenology and criminal law.
The house is located not far from the centre of Tetbury, a lovely historic town on the edge of the Cotswold. A double bedroom with a double bed and plenty of storage is available to the right Sharer. The property boasts a cosy lounge with a wood burner, a kitchen, a modern bathroom with walk in shower, a sunroom as well as a beautiful garden. The property benefits from private parking at the front.
There is a small convenience store opposite the house, as well as a well know supermarket, post office and butchers in the town. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities, including a Bowls club. The area is surrounded by farm land.
This would suit a friendly, tidy, helpful person who would enjoy sharing company, chatting over a cuppa, helping with some gardening, as well as cooking and eating some meals together. A driver is a must due to the rural area. The Householder has a very positive outlook on life and would like someone equally optimistic and willing to look at the glass half full.
The Householder would enjoy having companionship especially in the evening. Having the reassurance of there being someone in the house at night is very important.
The Householder would like a monthly contribution of £60 towards Council Tax and utility bills.
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.
