    I am a blind lady living alone in the west of Ireland (60 years old). I require somebody (ideally female) to provide a little company and security. While I do have a circle of friends, family and carers, I would welcome some help around the house and somebody in the house at night time and also at weekends. (security).

    No care in personal hygiene is required - just light housework (to keep house tidy), some cooking, primarily company and security.

    Ideally (but not essentially) I would prefer somebody with a driver's licence so that you can take me to the shops, appointments, visit friends etc., I have my own car.

    There would be two days off per week and this would normally be during the week as opposed to the weekend.
