    Help

    We work full-time and are looking for help around the house. Cleaning, cooking and occasional childcare. Our 12 year old son has high functioning autism. He is a kind boy who loves people and dogs. Our 9 year old loves playing sport. Both boys do a number of after school activities so it is preferable (but not absolutely necessary) that travellers have a drivers license to help take them to these activities. You will have access to a car and a bicycle as the boys love cycling.
