  • Description


    I am a single mother of 5 year old twins -and I am home alone with them for half the week. I share custody with their father. I would love to have company and help with them. My girls are happy and healthy and they keep me busy. You will not be alone with them very much, just my helper. You might be alone with them for an hour or two a week but not much. There have been a few times when my volunteer had to take care of the girls for a full day, but that is rare.

    You will have a lot of free time to do what you want. The most important thing is you LOVE children and enjoy spending time with them. My girls are high energy and they get along with everyone who can be patient and friendly with them. They have loved all of my volunteers! And I'm pleased to say I have become close, lifelong friends with most of my volunteers :)

I appreciate your interest and I wish I could take you but I simply don't have the space.

    Looking for a volunteer for SEPT 2020 onward.

    **I need a volunteer who is committed to following health advisories, regarding staying at home except for essential shopping (i.e. food), attention to detail regarding cleaning and washing hands. I need someone who has been following these rules for the last month and who is unlikely to bring the virus into my home. I live in a quiet neighbourhood where you can go for long walks in beautiful nature, or take my bike for a ride. I will not expect you to be indoors all day, but just to avoid human contact when outdoors. We are all frustrated, stressed, and scared, but we must respect the current rules for the benefit of all society.

    My girls are happy and healthy and too young to understand the reality of this, but they understand there is a 'virus' and we have to stay away from people and always wash our hands :)

    I am a teacher and now working from home, and need someone to do fun, creative activities while I work so I don't have to put them in front of a tv for hours!! Of course, sharing chores like cooking and cleaning, normal daily things...

    In July and August I will be home, so we will do things together.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Help


    I need a helper for me and my 5 year old twin girls. I will be home and you will help me play with them, cook, clean etc. Due to parks being closed most of my outdoor plans have been cancelled but we can find things to do. Time to be creative!!

    You will have a private room and bathroom. I live in rural suburb which is a 40 drive to Vancouver. I can help you with learning English, and I would love to practice my Spanish and French.

  • Accommodation


    You will have a private room with own bath in a 2 bedroom condo. It's clean and new with all modern conveniences. I will provide all meals and you just help me cook! I like healthy homemade food and like international food. You will buy your own alcohol if you choose to. We have wifi and cable TV. I will provide meals and accommodation, and personal expenses are yours. Because my home is small I would prefer a female only.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I have my children for half the week so I would need your help 3-4 days a week, and the other days you will be free to explore. I live in Pitt Meadows, BC which has a lot of natural beauty, lakes, hiking, biking trails etc but if you are a city person you can take the train to Vancouver.
