  • Description


    Need volunteer who is able to transfer a disable person M.S. from bed to wheelchair and viceversa.

    We are living in a nice forest area, Girona outdoors, not far from Costa Brava beaches.

    Due a my neck whiplash, I specifically need 1 volunteer who are able to help us

    I cook myself for all of us. I don't like volunteers touch my electrical appliances: kitchen, laundry machine, wash dishes, etc...

    I don't like smokers, people who drink much or strong drugs.

    BTW: Due to two past bad experiences, usually I won't host any volunteers if they have not any feedback or reference, with not exceptions.

    Any question you'd have, feel free to ask me.

    Thanks for your kind attention

    Basically the help we really need is to help my husband on his transfers 3 times a day:

    *Every morning the WA should help get up and shower my husband.

    *At noon it would be convenient to help him go again WC

    *And at night toilet again and help you get him into bed.

    As you can see they are very specific aids, total 2 or 2 and a half hours/day.
    In fact in the morning it would be an hour, an hour and a half,
    And half an hour in the afternoon
    Plus half an hour more in evening-night is enough,

    Rest of the day can not help me in the garden or not, it is not the essential
    even WA can come with me to Costa Brava beach

    What else ...

    Max number of volunteers I'm able to host: 1

    Maximum length of stay: from 1 week til 3 weeks, I don't commit for longer time accommodation .
    I'm trying to avoid more surprises (better safe than sorry)

    I live with my husband who always stays home .

    Kids also usually visit us very often.

    IMPORTANT: Bring your own towel will be appreciated!

    And your own laptop if you need one. I don't lend my devices, thanks for understanding.

    I can offer my volunteers:
    - Bed, food, sheets, shower (the shorter the better)
    - Ethernet connection 24/7 (but you have to have your converter piece Ethernet connectivity to your cell phone)

    BUT volunteers should be able to put in airplane mode their cell phones meanwhile are sleeping. We try to avoid EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields) at home because we are EHS (Electro Hiper Sensitive)

    Public transport: Bus stop 3 km from house, in BONMATÍ which is linked with Girona but I use to drive for WA.

    Restrictions to my guests:
    No drugs, no guns, not much alcohol, no smoke inside.
    During the sleeping time WIRELESS and cordless staff must be in airplane mode. However, you will be provided of Ethernet cable if you want to be connected 24/7. For iPads and Smartphone bring your connection for Ethernet cable.
