Sharer Sought for Wadhurst, East Sussex
Available from: 2/11/2019
Wadhurst, East Sussex TN5
What the Opportunity entails:
A friendly, interesting and active elderly person with some memory problems is seeking a Sharer for their home to give them a mix of 15 hours’ 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 helping to organise their calendar, give occasional lifts, some shared cooking and shared mealtimes plus miscellaneous support such as helping to feeding the pets, watering the odd plant, keeping things tidy and communicating with the person’s family.
The accommodation on offer is a single bedroom plus possible use of a second room (eg as a study/sitting room). The bathroom is only shared when family visit.
The property is on a little lane just outside the market town of Wadhurst, which has a lovely selection of shops. Wadhurst BR Station is a 7 minutes walk over the fields from the house, or 15 minutes walk along the lane, or a 2 minute drive. There are regular trains to London.
Ideally though, this situation would best suit a car owner/driver for convenience.
The person enjoys reading, walking, playing tennis, travelling, cinema, yoga, singing, painting and drawing, listening to Radio 4 and watching a good TV series. They also have a friendly dog and two cats.
The ideal Sharer will be a friendly and reliable, non-smoker who shares some of this person’s interests and is an animal-lover.
£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.
