    Hello lovely Workaways

    LADIES ONLY PLEASE.- looking for a workaway for my parents
    MIN 6 months.
    START March 2022
    No COUPLES.
    MUST BE USED TO WORKING OR LIVING WITH OLD PEOPLE,
    Caring, very organised and excellent at Housework
    Needs to love cats

    I am looking for a workaway on behalf of my parents. My dad is 82 and fit as a fiddle. My mum is 71 and also fit as a fiddle but has Alzheimers. My dad is the full time carer for my mum and they live in a large house in a medium sized town called Eltham in the South East of London. 20 mins from London

    They are looking for a live in home help who can live with them in their large detached 5 bed house and help do the cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing.

    My dad needs help with these chores so he can spend more time with mum.

    I am their daughter Lisa. I live 20 minutes from my parents but i work full time, divorced and have 3 kids. I have used workaways myself for the past 4 years so i know that having a Workawayer is a two way street - to ensure the Workawayer gets to learn about England and the language and become part of a family and have a great experience and for my family to meet someone fun and kind who will teach my parents about your culture and food.. I am looking for a respectable, responsible but fun Workawayer to start March 2022 and stay if possible for 6++months . I am looking for a mother’s help. which means someone who Is happy doing house chores such as washing, ironing, cooking and generally tidying the house.

    There is not much washing as just the two of them and yourself and cooking would be some breakfast lunches and dinners 5 nights a week. Shopping for food, maybe accompanying them for a coffee in a local cafe if you wanted, cleaning and tidying up and being generally helpful.

    My parents live in a 5 bedroom 2 bathroom house in a lovely town called Eltham South East London. They are a 2 minute walk from the town centre where there is a cinema, lots of shops, park and lots of restaurants. They are also a 10 minute walk from the local train station which goes into Central London and takes 20-25 minutes. They are a lovely, happy relaxed couple and have a cat called Billy who they love. They have a gardener Simon who comes every two weeks. They live 5 minutes from Eltham Palace and Blackheath golf club.

    We need a workaway to work 5 days a week Mondays-Fridays for 5 hours each day. Evenings will be yours and also weekends are free

    Dad is very chatty and mum and dad would welcome you into their home as one of them.
    The house is lovely and there is a lot of space. You would have your own room with TV and internet and a bathroom and toilet of your own.

    The Workawayer would maybe sort breakfast and or lunch and cook a meal for dinner. Ideally you would eat with them and be part of the family. Then clean up the breakfast /lunch/dinner plates and put these in the dishwasher, clean the table and have a general tidy around. Collect any washing from around the house that needs to be done and put in the washing machine. Do the ironing, clean the house (not all the bedrooms are used). The Workawayer could visit the local town, go to the gym or go to language school or hang out in the house or visit other au pairs for coffee. At weekends most of my au pairs went travelling or went into London etc to see sights.

    It would be great to find someone who enjoys cooking and is willing to cook different healthy basic recipes. Mum and dad are meat eaters (and fish/veg) so you need to be able to handle and cook meat and fish etc even if you yourself are not a meat eater.

    We want someone who is independent, flexible and accommodating, cheerful, chatty and happy and doesn't worry they have worked half an hour longer than stated as it works both ways and there will be times when you will have extra time/days off. I want someone who can cook, is helpful, good fun and above all REALLY enjoys housework and can iron. Please do not apply if you cannot iron or don’t like housework. This position is not about looking after mum but helping her and dad indirectly by helping around the house.

    The advantages of coming to us is you get to experience the UK in a nice medium sized town with lots going on, Very easy access to central London, food included, your own bedroom with netflix TV and internet/wifi included and your own bathroom. I pay pocket money of £120 per week and you get extra time off when they go on holiday.

    Any questions you have for us we will be happy to answer! We look forward to meeting whoever you are!

    Ps. Don’t forget they have a cat so don’t apply if your allergic !
