Self-contained accommodation PLUS $400 minimum per fortnight carers position available! Would much prefer a mature female, long-term, at least two or three months if possible. Good English is necessary (for safety reasons as a carer).

Hello :-) My name is Lee. I have a big beautiful peaceful property in Mangalore, 45 minutes north of picturesque Hobart Tasmania.

Tassie is one of the most beautiful freshest states in Australia! My property is 8 ha (20 acres), 2 acres are house and gardens and the rest is divided into paddocks, it is nearly all flat so it is great for my wheelchair.

We have a lovely little oasis in the middle of nowhere surrounded by trees and water ponds (some with fish) with lots of birds, lots of rabbits, Mr and Mrs Peacock! As well as a family of kangaroos, a couple of hares, one reclusive porcupine, sheep, chickens and a host of wallabies and other wonderful creatures :-)

We have a unique scenario to offer someone. Next to the main house we have a gorgeous one-bedroom self-contained cottage that has been fully renovated. In exchange for that accommodation we are seeking a female (or a couple) who would be happy to provide 3 all more hours volunteering Monday to Friday. Saturday/Sunday are free for yourself.

We are in the process of renovating a bedroom so when our cottage is occupied then we have the option of a bedroom inside my house. Bedroom not ready until late January 2018.

The cottage is available now. I live with my father (John, 64) and he is my primary carer (who is still recovering from a heart attack!). Basically we need someone to assist him (or me!) on the property or in the garden or in the main house. There is and always will be lots to do!

Besides the free accommodation for your daily assistance you also have the option of paid work ($28 per hour, but you will need your WHV), if you are happy to become a member of my caring team (I have a team of seven carers). The caring hours depend on other factors but cottage working hours and caring working hours must be kept separate.

At the age of five I was hit by a car so I have been confined to a wheelchair for over three decades. I am a quadriplegic, this means I am paralysed from the neck down and I require total physical care nearly all of the time.

I am basically a talking head :-) (I have a great sense of humour). Seriously, I am a very patient, positive, happy and ambitious man who aspires careers in the music and movie industry (as a writer). I believe in a future of peace, Love and self sustainability and I am working towards that.

Were looking for someone who is productive, happy, willing to help wherever possible and if you are going to become one of my carers it would be wonderful if you have a lovely caring nature :-)

It would be great if we could communicate prior (email is easiest for me) because I believe making a connection with someone is extremely important, especially when you are going to live here but even more so if you become one of my carers You do not need any previous caring experience or certificates as I am happy to train you in all areas (I have trained lots and lots of people). I can give you much more information on the caring side of things at a later date. Im more than happy to answer any and all questions.

Due to the fact that my property is out of town and not on a regular bus route, and of course because I am unable to drive you anywhere, it would be best for you to have transport. This is not absolutely necessary but it would be easier. If you do not have a car then we will simply overcome that, no problems! it just means that you may not get out and about all that often (which might be okay for you at.

It would also be a bonus if you had your full travel health insurance. We would absolutely love someone to stay longer term if that interests you and if we all get on well!

Hopefully my little scenario is of interest to you, we are open to any nationality or any age, just as long as you are well suited to the position and we have a positive connection. Thank you for your time in reading my profile.
