  • Description


    Hello everyone!
    Tamberna stands for Tamara Bernadette wich is my maiden name. You can call me Tamara. I am 71 years old and my husband died very recently. The appartment i will stay into untill October 1rst is way too big for me and i just had an arm accident so I could do with a little help!
    I am a belgian who moved to the Montreal area 10 years ago. My only son lives in Belgium still and i have no family in Canada. Before I retired I was a humain resources consultant. I am mad about classical music and I love artistic exhibitions. I have no pet and i am very tidy. Even thus i may seam like the typical older lady, I have friends in their 30s and they tell me I am very open minded for any type of conversation. I would love to exchange with you with a glass of Wine on a nearby terrasse or along the canal Lachine, wich is right down my window!

    So... if 15hours of help in diferent tasks in exchange for a private large bedroom with electricity and Internet included in a very Well located neigbourhood is ok for you, we could WhatsApp and agree.
    Tasks would look like:
    -driving with international driving licence to go to my appointments
    -grocery shopping
    -help for cooking
    -help for Cleaning
    -help me prepare for moving

    iMPORTANT. Even thus I live in the luxurious appartment of my husband children for now, my pension and my husband pension are little so I can’t afford to pay someone or include the food in the deal.

The house is on the 3rd floor with elevator of a residencial only building. The street is very quiet and thé living room faces a long beautiful canal where montrealers walk and bike. All is situated 10min walk from Atwater métro station. The grocery store is 3 min walk from here and 5 min from here is one of the two most beautifull outdoor market of Montréal. Down town is 3 métro stations from Atwater and nearby is already full of shops and cafe...
