    Description

    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 ussually 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 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

    Would be convenient volunteer who know how to drive an automatic car,
    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.

    What else ...

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

    Kids also usually visit us often.

    Please bring: YOUR OWN TOWEL!
    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 convertor piece)

    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
