  • Beschreibung


    Our family is seeking an individual who can provide elderly companionship in exchange for living on a beautiful island.

    My grandma has lived on Denman Island for many years and has a large, impressive garden. She is in her nineties and feeling uncomfortable living alone but doesn't want to leave the amazing community she has created on Denman Island. We are hoping to find a kind, compassionate individual who is interested in rural living and enjoys meeting interesting people.

    Your role would be to help with some day-to-day tasks, possibly help buy groceries, work in the garden but mostly just to be around in case of emergencies.

    In exchange, you can access Denman Island, its vibrant community and beautiful nature. You will live on a beautiful property with an extraordinary garden. You will have your own bedroom and bathroom in a large, spacious home.

  • Arbeit


    We are seeking an individual who is empathetic and enjoys conversation. Patience and strong communication would be important qualities to facilitate a positive relationship. Someone who has gardening experience would be an asset but is not a requirement. An individual who is happy to help with daily needs that arise, someone who is happy to help with grocery shopping and possibly light cleaning and cooking.

    Most of the work hours would be spent in the garden so someone who enjoys gardening and being outside would be a good candidate.
