We need help caring for my husband's 70+ year old mother, Christine. She is German and has lived in Palma for 10+ years. My husband and I live with his mother on the top floor, close to the cathedral, in a quiet street in the old town of Palma. We also have a friendly 6kg jack russell dog.
Christine is terminally ill and can not leave the bed any longer. She is able to walk to the bathroom to do her business, but that's it. We need help days & evenings.
We are a non-smoking, very laid back family, open to communication and enjoy living in a clean, quiet, and respectful home. We ask the same from you. We are social and enjoy going out for drinks, meals, excursions, etc. You are always welcome to join us (during non-working hours, of course!). Christine is a nice and very creative woman who loves to talk about her life and all things in general. If you appreciate art, you will find many of her works throughout our home. She is well traveled and loves classical music.
Old Town, Palma de Mallorca
