  • Description

    Description

    Nestled beside the Sifton Bog in London Ontario, our location features a vernal pond, lots of deer in the yard, rare birds and plants with hours of wooded hiking trails. We are also walking distance to Starbucks, gourmet shopping etc. I am a senior but very active.

    I take care of Adam a 36 year old developmentally delayed but very loving gentleman who gets along with others well and is fun to be around.

    We also have an 3 year old dog who loves attention but mostly just sleeps! . We like to eat well, take a cooking class each Thursday, a concert on Friday but mostly enjoy learning about other cultures.
