  • Description


    Female companion needed for a lovely lady living the countryside of the Lake District National Park as she is recovering from a hip operation. She loves reading and taking part in local community activities. Lives an extremely clean life in terms of diet and lifestyle. Experience and ability to drive a Toyota Yaris along narrow, windy roads in the UK (on the left hand side) is a must as it is a rural area. Also, vegan cooking is extremely welcome but a non-vegan diet for the workaway is no problem at all.

    Keeping a lady in her late 60s with low mobility company, including vegan cooking, a bit of cleaning, driving, shopping and some fun local activities. Also, feeding and walking a lovely, well trained black Labrador dog. Experience and ability to drive a Toyota Yaris along narrow, windy roads in the UK (on the left hand side) is a must as is a rural area. No nursing/ caring required, just keeping an eye and reminders to take medication.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Only a few hours per day required so loads of time to explore the amazing Lake District. The area is rural and quiet, so a significant degree of self-sufficiency is required. Three sons and two grandsons live very nearby who also love outdoor adventures.
