I am a theatre director for a small company. I live in a little town in East Devon near the sea. I have recently asked my Mum to live with me as she has dementia and is no longer able to live on her own. I am in the process of employing a full-time live-in carer but need a hand to make evening meals and to look after Mum when the carer is on her days off.
My mum is a wonderful, friendly person who has always been outgoing, funny, and interested in culture and sports. She still is like this but now cannot retain information. Mum is physically fine so the help that is needed is things like:
- making meals and tea
- putting a TV show on
- going for a walk
- driving Mum to visit places or to see her friends
- keeping Mum company
We live close to lovely walks in the countryside and the sea. There are quite a few historical places to explore and I would be more than happy to take you around. You can also be completely independant with a bike and nearby public transport.
I have been an actor in France for over twenty years so I can teach anything to do with theatre or French if you'd like.
I would really appreciate a helping hand.
P.S. I don't eat meat or dairy but I'm willing to buy them if necessary.
