I'm a single work-from-home parent living on the spectrum and working in sunny Auckland on the North Shore next to heaps of the best beaches in the country. I'm busy and project oriented with a full-on job. I have a beautiful son - who's 8. We have a big flat of friendly introverts, a lot of our flatmates are trans and/or queer. I'm looking for a workawayer who is consistent, self-motivated and reliable to help with day-to-day life, Monday to Friday.
Support tasks include:
Going for a walk with me each morning
Positive and uplifting support around executive function and general self care
Healthy vegan meal planning and prep Monday to Friday (for all of us including your food)
Other occasional unique tasks
Occasional light childcare (after school - 2 hours intermittently)
Help drawing our home toward zero waste
This should take an organised person 3 to 4 hours ish hours per day leaving you the rest of the time to seek employment, socialise, & enjoy the city. (30 minutes walking, 1 hour chores, 1 hour meal prep for the day, a little extra on an ad hoc basis)
You'll have the use of a vehicle if you can drive a manual, or a bike if you prefer to ride and there is a local yoga centre nearby offering free yoga.
Wifi, a big deck, a single bed, warm, dry, home, no animals.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house

You will learn how to make vegan food and enjoy living near the beach in sunny Auckland. You'll learn heaps of new skills and we are happy to provide references upon request. Lots of activities and also lots of spare time - if you manage your time well you'll love it here.
