What the Opportunity Involves:
In return for the low-cost accommodation (£199 pm), we are looking to match our older homeowner with a mature female sharer who can provide around 10 hours of practical support around the home and companionship each week, and a reassuring presence at night.
Our homeowner is a delightful lady in her 90s who has a close and caring family, and lots of friends and visitors who stay in regular touch. She is very bright and engaging, a ‘people person’ with a great sense of humour and she has a range of interests which include current affairs, science, philosophy, archaeology, and the environment. She is a practising Christian and enjoys going to church on Sunday.
Although quite active and well, our homeowner spends most of her time at home nowadays, having given up driving, and she would enjoy sharing a bit of time with someone in the evenings which she finds quite lonely, perhaps sharing some meals and good conversation, or the odd game of Scrabble, and occasionally on the weekends, popping to the shops, or perhaps to church together.
This opportunity would suit someone kind and caring with a good sense of humour, who might be working or studying a PhD, who drives and has their own car for easy access to the shops, and to the station. A mature lady who is happy to help with some local errands and shopping, preparing or heating up a few meals, and to share some time chatting over a cup of tea or a meal.
Cost: £199 per month
