Female Sharer for older couple in Chipping Norton
Are you a female who would like to share a spacious, light and peaceful home of a friendly, welcoming couple, both retired secondary school teachers, in a quiet part of Chipping Norton, a short walk from the town centre?
In the past the couple have both been active in the community and have enjoyed a variety of pursuits (theatre, music, walking, cycling, and volunteering) but this is now much reduced owing to the wife now being physically frail, with poor mobility and living with dementia (primarily short term memory loss and confusion). However, she still retains her lovely, gentle personality and sense of humour.
Having someone else in the house to provide extra gentle companionship and be a reassuring presence when the husband is not in the immediate vicinity (maybe in the garden or garage involved with practical tasks) is the main requirement of the Homeshare. The timing of the help needed is flexible and can be agreed depending on circumstances. However, someone who would be able to be around for a couple of hours in the afternoon, a couple of times a week, to enable the husband to nip out for a walk, or down to the allotment, would be ideal.
Some assistance with shopping, light household chores, and gardening might be welcome. Someone who would like to cook a shared meal from time to time might be very much appreciated.
This would suit an independent, kind, and friendly female, who would be happy to provide the companionship and reassurance outlined above.
Whilst the vaccine will soon change the situation, the Householders are currently looking for a Sharer who has immunity to Covid -10 or whose risk of being exposed to the virus is extremely low. Somone who needed to work from home, some or all of the time, would be welcome.
There is plenty of space to park a car if need be and even the opportunity to help out on an allotment if desirable!
