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 at the following areas:
Here there are a M.S. person, autonomous with his wheels chair to take his shower, and care about himself (unless to dance rock and roll), but volunteer is very convenient to help him when he fall doing his own transfer from his chair to into the car when we going recuperation or to go beach and help him to take a bath in the Playa de Aro's sea =;-)
Driving an automatic car if it were necessary in case I feel injured my shoulder or my back
Volunteer also should be able to work in my garden and go shopping food
I also do need one person capable to use my drill to fixed some screw or sweep the floor for example (though I have Roomba robot :)
Volunteer is just like family, so usually I ask to him same I ask to my kids when I need some help, here is not schedule, we point just goals
I usually try to do my best to my volunteers, and TG! fortunately, some of them give me his best and we become close good friends and they are always welcome return my home :)
BTW: Due to two past bad experiences, usually I won't host any volunteers if they have not any feedback or reference, except exceptional exceptions.
Any question you'd have, feel free to ask me.
Thanks for your kind attention
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
I'm Luisa, I'm a sailor, a nurse, a carer, an ESL student, a traveler, a host, a guest, and a volunteer as well :)
Currently I'm living in Girona's outside, in a quite place in a forest area, wild enough, with my ex-husband who is my flatmate also my best friend.
Despite the fact of Juan is confined in his wheel chair because M.S., he is autonomous and he is able to take care of himself, but not when he falls down.
I'm unable to say positively I'm EHS, but I've check that any time some device is ON at home during the night, I can not rest and I have headaches, stress and noise in my brain, feeling extremely tired, so I´ve decided to follow the PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE because better safe than sorry.
I hope I may count on your cooperation :)
FYI: I'm working with an iPhone an iPad with Ethernet cable, you can find in Amazon and is very cheap:
"Here is the product list needed to get an iPad or iPhone connected to the internet using an ethernet cable. (Products are available via Macmall or Amazon) 1. Apple USB Ethernet Adapter 2. Powered Usb Hub (Needs to have a power adapter) 3. Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter"
Spanish , English upper intermediate, Catalán, understanding French and Italian as well
Comfy bed BUT in my desk room (then you should not expect privacity or very limited), but I'm working on take my desk off of this room :)
Ethernet connexion 24/7.
No Wi-Fi except emergency, but for sure not during sleeping hours.
Living with us like a family
Your alcohol and tobacco is on you (BYOB)
Max number of volunteers I'm able to host: 1until we build bigger my wood cabin, to have more than one volunteer, and fixed it to be more comfy
Maximum length of stay: from half a week until 2-3 months or longer, but first I won't want to commit for long time accommodation until we may see if we get on well enough. I'm trying to avoid more surprises (better safe than sorry :)
I live with my flatmate who is my ex-husband and who is my friend too.
Kids also usually visit us often.
Bring your own towel, please!
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 - your cell phone)
BUT volunteers should be able to put in airplane mode their cell phones meanwhile they are into the house on the night. I try to avoid EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields) at home because we are EHS (Electro Hiper Sensitive)
Public transport: Bus stop 2,7 km from house, in BONMATÍ which is linked with Girona.
Also L5 line metropolitan bus which you may take on PLAÇA MARQUES DE CAMPS, near train station, ( Info: 972 419 010 - 972 245 012 or ) arrives until AIGUAVIVA could be convenient too because it's cheaper
Restrictions to my guests:
No drugs, no guns, no alcohol, no smoke.
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.
Note: Do not touch my bows, please, they are a 7th grade weapon

I have a bike to lend to my volunteers to biking around the area.
I don't expect volunteer make any schedule he doesn't like, here we are just working by goals (max 25hrs)
