We are a couple in the sixties and live with our dog Amos (border collie cross), our three horses Tank, Smokey and Sissi and our cat Tiger in one of the most beautiful areas of Canada, the West Chilcotin. Originally coming from Switzerland we settled down in Nimpo Lake where we found a beautiful log home nicely situated at the Dean River / Nimpo Lake where fishing is just great. Daily long walks/trail riding in the bush and watching the wild horses and all the other animals is one of our favorites.
Our personal situation has changed this summer when my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor (Glioblastoma). He had a six week of chemo/radiation treatment in August/September. My husband is not able to do any physical work anymore and needs my help in all his personal matters. I cannot manage everything by myself and we do need somebody helping us with our daily chores during this difficult time.

Help around the house
To live in a remote area (300 km from next bigger city) without cell phone coverage is a challenge in itself. It is a peaceful and quiet country living with plenty of time to reflect. Our next community is an Indian reserve which offers lots of opportunities to meet and learn about their culture.
We need help with our daily chores like feeding our three horses,picking up horse manure, chopping wood, maintenance work, helping in the kitchen, grocery shopping and cleaning.
We are living in a beautiful log home and have spare rooms with wireless internet.
The Nimpo Lake area is famous for quality fishing. Since we are situated in a very remote area there are lots of outdoor activities available: Wildlife watching, hiking, trail riding, fishing, biking, mountain climbing and a trip to Bella Coola by the Pacific. There are lots of opportunities to meet other people and join our little church in Anahim Lake.
