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) but this is now much reduced owing to the wife now being physically frail and living with mild dementia (primarily short term memory loss and confusion).
Having someone else in the house to provide extra companionship at times, and a reassuring presence when the husband is not in the immediate vicinity (may be in the garden or garage) would be much appreciated. Someone who could commit to being home regularly on Thursday evenings to provide quiet companionship whilst the husband is out, is essential. The help needed at other times is more flexible and could be negotiated depending on circumstances. Some assistance with light household chores, gardening and the odd bit of shopping might be welcome.
This would suit an independent, reliable, emotionally mature kind and friendly female who would be happy to provide the companionship and reassurance outlined above. There is plenty of space to park a car if need be and even the opportunity to help out on an allotment if desired!
