    I would like someone to spend some time at our house just to have another person or more around. There are opportunities to garden and work in the woodlot in season. My spouse does not need any personal care but I do not leave her alone. We would also like someone to be around when we are away for a few days or a week. The person who visits may also spend time at our cottage. both places are in beautiful locations with lots of outdoor opportunities such as swimming fishing, hiking and such. We host on two other sites for people just passing through and have had many guests over the years. Someone who is or wants to enroll in one of the local universities would be a good candidate to live here. The home is a little over a kilometer from the bus stop and the trail system. I can be flexible with regards to when or how long the stay is for but it will need to be discussed.
