  • Description


    My name is Matthias, I am 75 and my wife Gesche is 72 years old. I am a retired dentist and my biggest hobby and passion is my sailboat. Unfortunately the last couple of years our health status got worth so we are not that flexible anymore. Gesche got the diagnosis of dementia two years ago and I got chronic breathing problems after a spread pneumonia. That all sounds quite dramatic but we try to stay positive and to enjoy life as much as we can. Our daily delight is our friendly dog Oskar - a young welsh terrier. We have two children both living in Hamburg: Tina (judge, 46 y.o. with 5 Kids) and Stefan (teaching engineer, 44 y.o. with 2 Kids).

    We are located in the city center of Husum a small city at the north sea coast 100 miles from Hamburg and near the Danish border. Husum has a lot of tourists in the holiday seasons and has its own cultural events. We would provide the opportunity to take part in a language school (online or presential).

  • Aide


    We are looking for a companion for my wife suffering from dementia (early stage). An hourly caretaking in the morning, in the afternoon/evening and occasionally on weekends (then less weekdays). Maximum 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
    During week days we have additional support from a permanent nursing professional who is present from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. That means that nursing duties are not required, instead assistance with breakfast and dinner preparation as well as companionship or just someone being around.
