Female sharer required for Balham SW12
Available from: 26/9/2020
SW12 - This property is a 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.
What the Opportunity entails:
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 female non-smoker who is practical, has some spare time, and will be happy to lend a hand with things the elderly person find difficult. Dementia experience would be ideal.
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.
£150.00 per month plus possible contribution to Council Tax/utilities (£50 per month). NB Full-time students are exempt from Council Tax.
