  • Description


    Hi my name is Kathleen and I have two kids- a 20 year old at University and a 4 year old. We live just outside of Edmonton in a community called Sherwood Park.
    My older parents also live with me in a separate suite.
    I am a Christian and have worked as a pastor and in the non profit sector serving the marginalized. I have been fortunate to travel throughout much of the world and have experienced rich hospitality.
    My 4 year old is actually my niece and she has special needs as a result of her mother being a drug addicted. I need some help with her. As well, my parents are older. My father is blind and my mother had mobility issues.
    I have a large house and need help with childcare, dog walking, house keeping, meal prep and Yard work.

  • Help


    Helping with childcare is the most important. My niece goes to pre-school 2 days a week, and on the other days is at home. Helping her with behaviours and managing her impulsivity is needed. Playing with her, teaching her the alphabet, taking her to the park.

    As well, general housekeeping, yard work, meal prep and dog walking are all appreciated

    Note: due to Covid you will need to have a Covid test before arriving at our home and be willing to limit your contacts while staying with us.
