    Description

    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.

    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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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.
