TW1- St Margaret's BR station 250 yards away
What the Opportunity entails:
An older, friendly, independent and intelligent person with memory problems is seeking a Sharer for their home in St Margaret's Twickenham Tw1 to give them a mix of 15 hours’ help and company each week in exchange for the low-cost accommodation.
This person, who wishes to remain independent, would benefit from some practical help with paperwork and working through to-do lists, taking things to charity shops, general help with washing up and laundry, some shopping and cooking, and the general reassurance – for them and their family – of having someone in the home. There is a pretty garden, which is ideal for someone who would enjoy growing tomatoes for example.
The accommodation is a bright, spacious room furnished with a single bed, armchair, large wardrobe, desk and basin. There is also a fridge, kettle and microwave to enable some privacy from each other. There is a shared bathroom with a shower over bath.
The property is conveniently located just 250m from St Margaret’s BR Station and local shops. Richmond is just 1.2 miles away, an easy walk and also well-served by buses.
The ideal Sharer will be a mature, friendly, organised and reliable female, non-smoker who works or studies full time and can give help over a few evenings each week, and a few hours at the weekends. A cat-lover essential as the person may get a cat in the future.
£125+ 20% VAT per month [Total £150 per month]. Plus possible contribution to Council Tax (£25 per month). NB Full-time students are exempt from Council Tax.
