  • Description


    We are looking for a caring, warm-natured, tidy person to live with our spritely, sparkling and fun elderly mother. She lives independently and capably, but we would love someone to live with her to provide help with some light duties around the home. This could suit either a single person or a couple.

    We are after someone who is highly conscious of COVID safe practices, and whose lifestyle places them at minimal risk of coming into contact with COVID.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Mum enjoys conversation and helping others improve their English. Mum is passionate about the environment and there is bushland (where you can spot a koala if you are lucky) and parks nearby.

  • Help


    In exchange for room and board (including food, all utilities, internet etc), we would ask that you provide between 15-20 hours of help across the week. The hours of help are flexible, and can fit around your existing studies, or other work arrangements etc.

    When: To start from around Saturday the 29 August, and ideally to stay at least until Christmas.

    What you would do:
    - Help with simple tasks around the home, e.g. preparing some meals, tidying up, general light duties, assisting with buying food online etc.
    - Mum has a cleaner and gardener, so you wouldn’t be required to clean bathrooms, or do heavy duty garden work.
    - Going to the shops or helping drive mum to appointments may be required
    - Help maintain vegetable garden
    - Non smoker
    - Driver’s license preferred.
