we live in Tenerife which is called the island of eternal spring. here is the good weather and the place where we live very beautiful. the house is located at an altitude of 600 meters from the sea level. of course, since November at this height is cooler. but if you go down to the bottom to the beach there is always warm weather. work better in cold weather. people can rent a car and live life on the island. after their hours of work. they can discover the island. There are groups here that often go hiking in the mountains. they also can enjoy the house. I already said it was something like a park. with caves where you can play billiards and pinpong and be just in a place surrounded by nature. the house is not in the touristic zone. so you can meditate and practice yoga. if you like to practice it.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We just need someone man or woman to cook healthy food. It should be in the morning from 10am to 12am. Then we can eat together according to what you feel like. and if that person can speak Chinese. we learned chinese, but we need practice
The rest of the time can be used to maintain the kitchen clean and also to gardening, collecting vegetable from garden, watering and sometimes planting. We grow food only for ourselves not for selling on the market.
In fact, we are busy working on construction projects full time and we have to time for cooking ourselves. We had an experience with one woman who stayed to months with us and it was perfect for all of us. Unfortunately, she could not stay more than two months.
We are also looking for someone who wants to stay with us for about six months and help us take care of an old person. During the coronavirus, we had three loved ones and ourselves to watch my mother, 92 years old but in good shape. This means that we were five people. So that it is not too tiring, we take turns watching my mother for two or three hours. In most cases, during this three hour period, my mother walks around the garden for a bit and most of the time she sits on a chair or goes to sleep in the bedroom. We are mainly there to prepare food and help her eat.if is necessary to intervene in personal hygiene, for example, my wife who takes care of it. During the monitoring time, you will have plenty of time to do your personal business (use your phone for reading, writing and the like). Above all, we need a permanent presence. We cannot leave my mother without attention. but we definitely needs someone who speaks french.
Chinese (Mandarin): Fluent
