Affordable Room in HENDON in exchange for help!
Affordable accommodation offered in HENDON NW4 area, excellent opportunity for a FEMALE or MALE Homesharer looking to live in a lovely home.
We are a Not-for-Profit charity in London who run a Homeshare programme, where we find Homesharers who are willing to provide approximately 10 hours a week of help, support and companionship to a householder who has a spare room.
• Outside the flats are bus stops for the 240 bus which goes north to Mill Hill the journey is 20 minutes, and to the south through to Golders Green Underground Station.
• On the way to Golders Green the bus passes through Hendon which has many shops, supermarkets, bakeries, green grocers and delicatessens.
• Golders Green is quite a major hub and from there either by train or the many bus routes most parts of London can be easily reached.
• The flats have a private parking area which can be used if the homesharer has a car.
The Householder is in her late 90’s is a vivacious personality she lives in a lovely 2-bedroom ground floor garden flat in Hendon. She is a smoker. She has had a varied life having run businesses in the past, interested in art, world news. She is a very engaging householder and would welcome a Homesharer who can offer her some support in day to day tasks, companionship and the added assurance of having someone at home at night.
She feels that a clean and tidy home is important to her and would like a homesharer to respect this. Her cleaner comes in twice a week and deals with the main cleaning tasks. It would be nice if the homesharer can cook an evening meal on some days, do some shopping or even help to order it online and help her putting it away. The rest of the time the help needed will be discussed and agreed at the first meeting. Her family would feel at ease knowing there is someone with their mum in the evening and at night.
She spends a lot of time watching the TV she likes the news, films and series on Netflix. Her passion is playing bridge which presently she does 3-4 times a week on-line with her friends. Hopefully soon they will be able to resume their routine by coming to her and her being able to visit them for their games. Putting up and arranging the card table would be appreciated at those times
The ideal candidate would be a kind and friendly female/male, someone who can integrate with the Householder, someone who is calm, patient and helpful. She has a great sense of humour and strong opinions and she likes to discuss world events with people.

An open plan living room/dining room is inviting, well-furnished. French doors in the dining-room lead onto the patio garden, of which she is very proud and provides a very comfortable outdoor space with tables, chairs, umbrella, and awning to sit in during better weather.
