We are a retired German and English couple who live in Salobreña with our 2 cats. We moved to Spain 19 Years ago and have been very happy here.
Sadly Dennis developed dementia a few years ago and his health has slowly deteriorated, I have until recently been providing all his needs, However as he can’t be left unattended, it’s made it difficult for me to continue my interests or attend appointments etc. Dennis enjoys a range of company, and I’ve noticed he is more settled when there is a variety of companions.
Help around the house
We live in a beautiful area of Spain, surrounded by natural beauty and the sea (1.5 km from a beach) We are in a quiet neighbourhood, but a short drive to 2 lovely towns.
Both our nearest towns (Salobreña and Almuñécar) have all the usual facilities plus 2 beautiful old towns. We are surrounded by countryside with beautiful walks, plus KM’s of beaches.
I am looking primarily for help with my husband Dennis who has Dementia. He is mobile, although slow, he is sometimes lucid, although is becoming less and less. He enjoys company and really enjoys going out for meals and to our local cafes for a coffee. He enjoys short walks and journeys in the car. He is able to feed himself. Any personal care I provide.
I have a couple of regular carers plus neighbours who also help when required.
I would like someone who can take him out (car provided) to the places he’s familiar with, or maybe stay home with him so I can attend appointments etc. I anticipate this taking up maximum of 15 hours per week. The other 10 helping around the house and garden.
The workaway doesn’t need to have care experience in particular, but someone who is confident, kind with good common sense.
As the kitchen is a shared space it’s important that you are clean and tidy without prompting.
We would do a weekly shop together, you are however responsible for providing your own meals with the food provided. You are responsible for any snacks and fizzy drinks etc.
I or one of the carers would go out with you and Dennis until you and I feel confident.
