    In August I woul dlike to take my daughter for a two weeks holiday.
    Ideally the person I am looking for could be with us for 5 to 6 weeks after the 14 of July. An experience with caring for older people would be appreciated. My mother is fairly autonomous and mainly needs help for meals. Professionnals come to the house every second day to help her. You will have to shop and prepair food. When we are together I will show you the area, shops and markets. For the two weeks that I will be away with my daughters my wife will be there every night but will be studying in Caen during weekdays.
