    Help

    We need half day support with patience and drivers license to spend fun time with our ladies (slightly schizophrenic with walking disability and one with Alzheimer). No hygiene task or heavy work required. You should speak some German. Play games, sing, go for a walk and take them out to beaches and parks.
    Should the ladies be too tired for entertainment we would appreciate help with cleaning and minor maintenance tasks around the house (mowing the lawn, taking out weeds, improving our wooden windows with filler and lacquer, touch up plaster, whitening of tile grouts, replace silicone joints, etc.).
