  • Description


    We live on the outskirts of Galway, within walking distance of Salthill or the city centre and we are also on a bus route.
    I am Kieran and I live with my mother, Bríd, who is 89 and has dementia. I was introduced to Workaway by my sister, Áine, who is a Workaway host in Italy and she is dealing with the enquiries for us. We are looking for someone who likes to cook and can help out generally with housework as well as keep our mother company when needed.

    There is something for everyone in Galway. It is a very multi-cultural city and there is much to explore whether it is music, arts, history, food etc.

    We are not looking for any special skills. Mum has dementia and as it progresses she is getting more confused and needs more help with everyday things. This is provided mainly by Kieran who is her full time Carer but there are other people who help out including home support visits. Nevertheless, it is increasingly difficult for him to keep up with tasks around the house and garden.

    So ideally we would like someone who is happy to do most of the cooking in particular the evening meals. Also, to help out with day to day tasks around the house and to sit with Bríd so that Kieran can have a break or when he has things to do. Mum responds well to visitors - she still loves to have other people around. It makes a lot of difference to Kieran as well and he is glad of the company.

    If you feel this is something you would be interested in doing we would be happy to answer any specific questions you may have

    You will have your own room with shared bathroom but Mum has her own en-suite.
    We have our main meal in the evening and would love someone who is happy to cook.
