  • Description

    Description

    Seniors, needing some hands on help with the property and inside the house. Our children are grown and gone, but we now have 3 dogs 2 cats and 2 Llama's for replacements. We are always told that we have a very nice home and yard, we love flowers and have lots of flower beds and fruit trees. My husband loves to can and freeze food from the garden. Depending the time of year you visit us, you could learn how to do this. Would appreciate assistance and would love to show our visitor our local country.

    Help

    Need someone to help with flowers and vegetable garden. House cleaning, cooking and pet care. General companionship. We would be hard pressed to keep you busy 5 hours a day. Right now, I need the walls washed in the hallway and the bathroom, maybe in the winter help with painting as well? Spring is always busy here, planting the garden, getting the flowerbeds and hanging pots ready for planting. Using the lawn tractor and quad to help with just normal jobs around the acreage. We don't have any horses or cattle. We are seniors and I have a bad back, so help will be greatly appreciated.

Prefer to share meals like a family, can cook if they wish to. We would like someone that will be like family, friendly, take initiative, and like spoiled pets. (dogs, cats and Llama's.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have 4 1/2 Acres with lots of trees so we get loads of birds and deer visiting. Also we are about 13 km from town, but go frequently. Would be more than happy to take our guest into the City (Edmonton). Our small city offers almost anything a big city does. We expect a working guest to keep their room clean, is polite and enjoys company and helps out when they see a need. We enjoy outside living, and in nice weather we spend a great deal of time on our decks. We also BBQ a lot for evening meals. We live a casual lifestyle, jeans, sweat pants etc.
