Hi we're Sandra and Geoff. We live on the beautiful west coast of Scotland in the village of Kilchoan, where we run a small software company. We enjoy cooking, kayaking, sailing and hiking. We live in a small community with a mix of people ranging from crofters to wildlife photographers and where everyone says hello to each other.
Help around the house
We live on the beautiful Ardnamurchan peninsula on the west coast of Scotland, surrounded by islands, mountains and wildlife. It's a small and friendly village, with a shop and local pub where everyone knows each other's name. There is a village regatta, highland games in the summer, and social activities and clubs. We run a busy international business.
We are looking for help, looking after my mum, Pamela. It would consist of around 3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week. Ideally we are looking for someone to stay 2 to 3 months to give my mum some continuity.
It would consist of light housework, preparing meals for her, helping her out with fiddly tasks like setting up her audio book and taking her for short walks.
We already have wonderful carers coming in, in the morning and evening who get mum up and put her to bed.
The accommodation is a single room in the 2 bedroom annex where my mum stays. You would be sharing the kitchen, bathroom and living room with only her. The annex is attached to our house and we'll be at hand if there's anything you need.
You'll be surrounded by the great outdoors and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. We have kayaks and bicycles you can use. Tobermory is a short ferry ride away. Due to our business, we have a very fast internet connection at the house.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
We run an international internet business . We develop and sell specialist software used to collect and manage scientific material for academic conferences. Happy to learn and discuss any aspect of internet working from managing diverse teams to marketing.
We have a safe parking spot and we could run an electric cable to your van. We are at the end of 20 miles of single track road with passing spaces, so reversing skills are required. On the plus side, the scenery is stunning and there are plenty of places to explore.
We enjoy having animals around although we do not have pets ourselves. Happy to talk about how we could accomodate your pet if you are bringing one.
Maximum 4 hours a day, 5 days a week
