Sweet deal! Empty-nesters need a hand. General (light) housekeeping, laundry, ironing, and keeping the garden tidy (gardner comes regularly). Kids at university. Working wife - travels a lot. At home husband, post-stroke, right side paralysis - can manage almost all personal care and daily activities; needs a little help with meal prep and for jaunts outdoors (has scootmobile and can get around in wheelchair or short distances with a cane); king of the castle and garden.
Beautiful house. Short distance (5 minute walk) from city center. Accommodations include tv, WiFi, bathroom and kitchenette.

Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Lively, academic, musical, athletic, well-read, multi-lingual/cultural household - minutes away from everything that Amsterdam has to offer. Wife is clinical research physician. Husband is former mathematician and docent (psychology, child development, secondary education). Lots of books, experiences, stories and lessons to share - if you like.
Laundry and ironing
Meal prep: making coffee and sandwiches for husband’s breakfast and lunch (sometimes dinner, if wife is away).
Help with transfers: ensuring husband gets in and out of house safely for physiotherapy appointments (Tu/Fr mornings)
Assistance with carrying (light) things
Private bedroom, with Jack and Jill bathroom/kitchenette. Your room also has a small table and chairs, as well as a couch. Access to library and external seating/entertaining areas.
The center of Amsterdam is a free ferry ride away (200 meters from the front door). There is also a car that can be used for local errands, and (if agreed in advance) exploration further afield. Ours is a lively, hip, multi-culti neighborhood.
