  • Description

    Description

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

    Due a my neck whiplash I specifically need 1 volunteer who are able to drive an automatic car if were necessary.

    We have not animals, but it seems very curious to me which people use to be able to take care Animals, but not consider to care Elderly people :(
    Then if you feel that elderly people is disgusting to you, please, don't send me a request. Here life turns around a M.S. person.

    As our car is 16 years old, we don't use to let it to volunteers, Juan is gonna driven by myself, but t's very convenient volunteers come with us to help to Juan transfer from his chair to into the car going recuperation or to go beach and help him to take a sea bath.

    And who doesn't be afraid to work in my garden and go shopping to convenience store helping carry with food.
    We like eat healthy food, however, healthy food is often not the most expensive. Honestly, we can not afford all we'd like.

    I also do need one person capable to use my drill to fixed some screw or sweep the floor for example.

    Ops! I'm not telling volunteer should work 24/7, of course not! WA is just like family, so I ask to WA same I ask to my kids.

    Also we need a volunteer able to help in our houseworks, not a person who comes here to improve himself meditating or whatever, I mean, we are tired to keep people who don't do anything back.
    I use to do my best to my volunteers, and TG! fortunately some of them give me his best and we become friends and they are always welcome return my home :)

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

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

    Thanks for your kind attention
