    UPDATED! (Helpers required immediately!)
    Hello workawayers!
    I'm Ellen, an active senior Canadian citizen, living with my mildly challenged daughter and my cute dog Cici.

    Location : We live on an 8 acre hobby farm with two homes. My other daughter and her husband live in the second house with their three small dogs and two horses.

    Who I'm looking for : I'm looking for a quiet person that can help me around the home with daily chores and fit into our little family appropriately. A valid driving licence is essential as you will be required to drive my car and basic cooking would be helpful. Non smoker preferably and minimum stay one month but long term preferred.

    The work: As previously mentioned I require help around the house and garden.
    approx 4-5 hours per day with two days off a week / flexible hours
    (in reading our past reviews, we have been remiss in giving 2 days off in a row. This started at the request of one of our workawayers, and we just forgot to change it back. Of course, 2 days off in a row will be totally workable)
    The tasks includes: some Cleaning, shopping for groceries , taking myself or daughter to medical appointments, companionship, gardening (especially in the summer!)General household duties.

    In and around my home : I have 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and an outdoor hot tub.

    What I will give you in return :
    You will have your own private bedroom, a shared bathroom and a shared living room. Three meals a day (join us for meals of course!) Wifi and a shared and almost private resting and activities room with cable TV for workers is available too.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
