    Jean, has a carer in the morning to assist with washing and dressing. A Workawayer's help is primarily to give Jean some company and keep the house clean and tidy. Her Son (77 yrs) and Grandson (52yrs ) also live in the house and we all muck in. Walton is 25 mins by train from London and the station is a 15 minutes walk from the house. A decent sized room is available with a comfortable single bed, the bathroom is shared with Jean and needs to be kept clean for you and her. Jean is now quite frail and dozes a lot, during which time you would be able to sit and read, study or just enjoy the garden. We all chip in with the cooking and would love it if you have some favourite dishes to share with us.
    There will always be someone around to help you if you feel you need it. We'd like to run a trial period and if it works well, we're open to a few months or more of help. Our current workaway a young 30years old has stayed for almost 2 months, she has loved being with us and you would be most welcome to chat to her about the role.

    London will be the most attractive and exciting location to explore, but there is also beautiful countryside to discover not far away, including Hampton Court Palace. We have an interesting family with a significant French connection. Gran also speaks quite good French! Gran's son, Malcolm, is involved in local government, as a councillor, as well as being Chairman of the Walton Athletics Club, so there's an opportunity to learn about politics and get involved with sport, if desired.

    Jean likes company from around 8.30 am once the nurse has finished helping her wash and dress. She'd love you to join her for breakfast, to read the newspaper and chat. You would then tidy a little around the house, enjoy a break and then join her again for coffee around 10.30. Her Son does most of the shopping and lunch is the main meal of the day at 12.30. Helping or even preparing lunch would be a bonus. Jean likes to help chop the vegetables. After lunch around 1.30, Jean sleeps until tea time 4 pm, you are free to relax. At 7 pm Gran always has her supper on her lap watching TV before bed at 8.45 pm.
