  • Description


    We are looking for someone to keep my mother Rosemary ,company whilst my daughter Rosie is studying at the nearby University. (Lots of Rosies in our house!)My mother has mild dementia and is an adorable and witty artist.We have daily carers , but sometimes my daughter cannot get home very early. The house is very beautiful situated in the Bishopston valley in the Gower Peninsula, a designated Area of Outstanding natural beauty.
    We have an enchanted garden backing onto the forest . We would love some help in the garden . Preferibly someone with a driving licence who can use the car to go out and about together.
    The Gower Peninsula in south Wales has fabulous beaches and countryside near to the Brecon Beacons National Park.It is very near the City of Swansea.
    We are looking for someone who can stay for a longer term , who likes relaxing in Nature , Art and having fun.
    We will provide accommodation with food and internet and full access to the house. We are looking for a friend.
    Rosie is styudying a Masters in cardiff and this entails an hours commuting and lots of assignments,so she really needs someone reliable who can be there in the gap when the carers have left and who can keep an eye if she has to work late or stay over near the University.
