I live in an extraordinary area offering many things to do and see. The capital of the world really. A place full of international energy and knowledge to suck in. I have a large house in which I live with my 81 year old dad who is my best friend but can not be left alone. I need someone to help with the meals and be here when I am not. Everyone loves my dad as he spent his whole life helping students as Dean here at the University of Maryland where we live on the edge of campus. He has helped many kids and has always had a student in the house (I was one - he's not my blood dad, but helped me finish school many years ago). All of us are like family even though we are scattered all over the world. I am willing to offer free housing and meals for a little help and some responsibility when I am not around as I travel a bit internationally. Jud (my dad) is capable of doing things but needs to be reminded as he has early Alzheimer's and needs to be reminded often. We have a cleaning lady that takes care of the house and his laundry so there is no work there. Other than that it's just fixing meals and helping with the shopping. We have an extra car for use in the MD area.

Help in the house
This area is the capital of the world and so easy to get around. The Metro is right here near campus and DC offers many cultural and learning experiences if one just gets to them. The Smithsonian, National Geographic, Think Tanks, Concerts of all kinds, law, politics, etc. etc.
As explained earlier I need someone to help with the meals and be here when I am not. Elderly companionship is basically the barter. That and help preparing meals and tasks around the house. Responsibility with respect to Dad is the paramount issue. He can not be left alone for long periods though he is quite fit and capable. Other than that there is plenty of time for your own interests and even work.
