  • Description


    At our old barn in the wide countryside of Brandenburg we try to create our new home. There is always a lot of work in the huge Garden as well as we need somebody to play and care for the kids, especially for Moritz, who has Down-Syndrom. He is 10 years old and very active for a "Downy", likes swimming very much ( only at summer) exploring the forest, jumping on the huge trampolin, playing football.

    If we are not in Brandenburg we live in the Centre of Berlin near Mitte/Prenzlauerberg/Mauerpark. If you want I can lent you a bike.
    Our free time we stay at Brandenburg/countryside at our old barn where you can enjoy the wide countryside, just hear birds singing and cocks crowing from far away.

    In Berlin: if you want you can spend your free time at Berlin. Our flat is near Mitte/Prenzlauerberg/Mauerpark.

    By the way - people with Down-Syndrom are very special . For them it seems to be natural to be opened up to strangers and foreigner spontaneously. Spoken words or reputation does'nt count, "Downies" have their own opinion what is true at their moment.

    vom 17.10. bis 26.10. brauche ich dringend einen Spielpartner/ Babysitter für Moritz! Er spielt gerne Ball, geht spazieren oder fährt Fahrrad. Er ist sehr kommunikativ und offen obwohl er keine Wörter spricht.

    There is a lot of work at the huge area, such as cutting trees , making firewood. I would be very glad to find a person with carpentary abilities...

    My 10-year-old son with Down-Syndrom needs somebody to spend the time with, explore the landscape/ forest or spend the day with him going swimming (at a lake). Moritz does not speak, but despite of that he is very good in communication. He is very active and sportive for a boy with Down-syndrom. In Brandenburg we have a big trampolin which he uses and loves a lot. He also likes to play any kind of games that includes balls...

    In the morning time I love to drink my coffe on my own, enjoying silence around me. So I wouldn't mind if you prefere to sleep a bit longer... or have the same manners ....
    I can offer to spend your free days in Berlin and sleep at our flat in Mitte. Because it may be difficult to enjoy your free time in the calm of Brandenburg, we could find a solution , for example working 3 days and having 3 days off.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Please notice that you will spend a lot of time in Brandenburg, countryside. It's very calm out there and it's very likable. Totally different to Berlin.The nearest train station is about 6 km close. So it's approximately two hour ride (by train) if you want to go back to Berlin for a party, for ex. and return the next day for work.

    My son is not totally clean yet (he still wears sometimes diapers) and you should not be too sensitive about that. I can do that.....
