  • 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 41 year old developmentally delayed but very loving gentleman who gets along with others well and is fun to be around.

    We also have an 8 year old Roti who loves attention but mostly just sleeps! . We like to eat well, enjoy concerts at the music school, ebiking in Springbank Park and along the Thames Valley Parkway, active in VR with an Meta Quest 2 but mostly enjoy learning about other cultures.
