  • Description


    I am just 60. I live in a beautiful countryside just outside Ballycotton. I live with my husband of 41 years. Ballycotton is a beautiful spot with many work away girls here.

    I am very easy going and will not be demanding at all. I have 2 daughters and one son that will also help. The person would have good time off to meet up with others in ballycotton. I have a bicycle that they can use to go to the village.

    I am having a back procedure done in late June and will need help.

    I suffer very badly with pain and not able to do much at all.

    I am looking for someone to be company as well as helping me.

  • Help


    I am having a back procedure and will need help with domestic things in the house. Cook dinners would be a great help. Baking would be great too if possible, but not essential. Help me with my laundry and changing my bed regularly. A bit of hoovering and a bit of polishing, light housework really.

    Private room with good wireless Internet.
    Will have to share bathroom with me. You will eat meals with us and be part of our family. I have 7 grandchildren that love to visit and one or two of them love a sleepover. We also have a sitting room and living room separate with a wood burning stove in both rooms. You could have friends to visit and use the sitting room if you wanted to, otherwise be with us as a family.
