  • Description


    We are a familycommunity with 3 generations and one cat.
    As we all work fulltime, we need a company for "our Oma" (grandmother), a few hours per day, so she is not all allone during the day.
    Even though there could be some light housework and sometimes beeing there at the weekend, when we go away
    My mother has got light dementia and is more or less able to take care of herself (going to the toilette, making herself some food). She doesn`t need nursing.
    Therefor she does forget things she said and occasionaly what she did, or wanted to do.
    A longtime female company would be perfect.
    Start would be end of august/ start of septembre

    Our mum needs company, as we work in the day.
    She doesn't need nursing, just company like talking, going for a walk etc. and a little bit of housework.
    We live in a 3 store colourfull house. We have got a fine small garden, where we like to barbecue.
    In summer we also love to sit on our roofed balcony and spent comfy hours.
    The town we live is Siegburg.
    Siegburg has got an ICE station and you can reach cologne within 30 min and Bonn within 20 min.
    A bus stop is right in front of our house. Another busstop is about 5-10 minutes walk.
