Female Sharer required for Wandsworth SW17 **Under Offer**
Available from: 22/2/2020
SW17- 10 min walk from Wandsworth Overground
What the Opportunity entails:
A warm, friendly, independent and bright older person with short terms memory problems and limited sight is seeking a Sharer for their home to give a mix of 15 hours’ practical help and company each week in exchange for the low-cost accommodation.
This person would really benefit from some practical help around the house including some cooking, shopping, keeping an eye on the fridge, changing the sheets, helping around the house, helping with the iPad, diary reminders, plus the reassurance of having someone around their home in the evenings/overnight.
The accommodation on offer is a good-sized room furnished with twin beds and a large wardrobe. There is a bathroom – bath and hand held shower hose – mainly for the Sharer’s use (except if family visitors). There is shared use of the home’s other facilities – and with two separate sitting rooms there will be times for spending with the householder, but room for when you both want your own space and privacy.
The property is conveniently located approx. 12 mins walk from Tooting Bec Underground (Northern Line), or 10 mins walk from Wandsworth Common Overground. It’s a lovely residential area, very close to Wandsworth Common.
The person enjoys arts programmes, going to the cinema, architecture, travel, people and fun, and is currently learning Italian! They are very creative but now limited in what they can do.
As a Sharer you are free to work or study as long as you have enough spare time to give the agreed level of company and support. The ideal Sharer will be a friendly, positive and reliable female, non-smoker who ideally shares some of the person’s interests.
£150.00 per month Plus possible contribution to Council Tax/bills (up to £50 per month).
NB Full-time students are exempt from Council Tax.
