Description

A friendly elderly person with memory problems is seeking a Sharer for their home to give them 15 hours’ support each week in exchange for the low-cost accommodation.

This person would really benefit from some practical help around the house including help with shopping, cooking some healthy meals, household chores (eg hovering and changing sheets), light gardening, giving gentle diary reminders, plus the reassurance of having someone around their home in the evenings/overnight.

The accommodation on offer is a furnished double bedroom with shared use of shared bathroom and small kitchen. There is a female lodger and the bathroom and small kitchen would be shared with them.

The property is conveniently located just 10 minutes walk from Balham Station (Overground and Northern Line tube) and 10 minutes walk from Wandsworth Common Station (Overground) so very quick connections into central London. It is also only a short walk from local shops and the lovely open spaces of Wandsworth Common.

The person has enjoyed a long career in classical music, most recently teaching piano. They have also enjoyed visits to art galleries, museums and travel.

This would suit a kind, quiet and patient mature female non-smoker who is practical, has some pare time, and will be happy to lend a hand with things the elderly person find difficult.

As a Sharer you are free to work or study and ideally have some time during the time to give the agreed level of company and support.

If you are interested, please email a little information about yourself, your hours of availability, if you can commit for at least a year, and why you are interested in, and think you may be suitable for, this share. We can then give you more details about this specific situation.

We are a Homeshare agency specialising in finding Sharers for people who have a spare room and would welcome and benefit from some company and practical help. As a Community Interest Company, the monthly payment goes towards the running of the scheme.
