Area: ZagrebWe are young couple with no children living just outside Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. We have a house and a garden. The house is partly still under construction (so is the garden, too :-). I work mostly at home as film editor, and my girlfriend works in Zagreb as dance teacher. We like nature, sailing and laughing. When it comes to people, we really appreciate honest, cheerful and simple folk. We are vegetarians and non-smokers.
Area: CaliforniaI am a retired engineer, 73. My wife Fran is in the sixth stage of Alzheimer's (somewhat advanced) with a sweet personality and no signs of anger or frustration. I am looking for an experienced elder caregiver, preferably who has worked with persons with Alzheimer's, to help me care for my 84 year old wife in our home in Folsom, California, for one to six months. I currently get some help from our church members, but we need additional and more consistent help. We seek a non-smoking female of any age who will take care of Fran for five hours a day, five days a week, in exchange for a private room, a bath, and home meals. Duties include helping her with personal hygiene, cooking, and companionship. Good communication skills in English, patience, and references are required. We eat just about anything, and have a gentle and affectionate dog named Bella.
Area: BrittanyWe have a farm with 20 horses, ponies and a herd of sheep in the middle of Brittany, north west France. We also have a two year old son, a dog, Bailey and a cat, Jazzy. I run the farm and train the horses and ponies using natural horsemanship techniques, and would love some help with the farm and the horses. In return for your help, we offer your own room, wifi internet access, food and a some time playing with the horses. I would prefer helpers who love horses and want to spend lots of time with them because we really are in the countryside and there are no big cities around. We have room for one or two helpers at a time. We are currently looking for one or two helpers in October. We prefer helpers who can preferably stay for a month or more. At the moment we have some great work(!?) to do, like getting this year's foals used to being handled and getting our young horses out and about.
Area: ScotlandHELP NEEDED URGENTLY Dear Workawayer , At present assistants is needed particularly in relation to painting and decorating and cleaning inside and out side areas in preparation for the year a head. This is the annual spring clean. We are a vibrant young family living in the Stunning Highlands of Scotland. Our family consists of Lynsey aged (28) and her two lively little boy’s Ruaridh aged(5) and Euan aged (2). Lynsey is a qualified social worker and has worked in the profession for many years: however last year she made the drastic decision to completely overhaul her lives. It was Lynsey’s desire to be at home with the children and to build an organic eco garden to provide food for the veg box Scheme which she is developing. As a family we are also very passionate about upcycling “rubbish” into useful and decorative item’s which would look apart of any home or garden. We are at the very early stages of a large project and would love to share our excitement and experimentation with others. It is our aim to build a new sustainable future for our small patch of this wonderful planet. We have a keen interest in permiculture and other sustainable living ideas. We would love to have as many as 3 workawaers come stay with us at any one time. We do live in a small crofters cottage but have one spare small single bedroom which will be reserved particularly for young female single travellers. We have two reception rooms, we could accommodate to travellers of the same sex or a couple. This opportunity is very exciting and different but would only suit people who did not mind sharing space with others. Once the project is fully build there will be accommodation built specifically for our visitors. Visitors will also be provide with three hearty meals a day. What we expect from our guests. We do not ask for much but due to having two young children in the family home we ask that all guests refrain from the use of bad language. Do not use mind altering substances and if they choose to drink alcohol that it is in moderation. If our visitor is a smoker we ask that this habit is kept outside the family home. We also ask that visitors assist with house work in order that the family home is kept comfortable for everyone living in it. The Highlands of Scotland is very beautiful and there will be much to see and do, we only ask our visitors to work four days and week and the rest of the time is theirs to do as they wish.
