Dear potential helper(s), we will be needing help as from October 22nd. We are looking for communicative and patient people to help in the house and garden and also to keep Alfonso company. He is wheelchair bound but fun-loving and enjoys meeting people.He especially enjoys music and can speak English, French and Italian as well as his mother tongues - Spanish and Catalan.
There will be some light gardening and housework too.
Our house (in a fairly unspoilt part of the Costa Brava, 4km inland) is similar to a terraced house in the UK.The garden easily gets out of control if there is no one to weed and generally take care of it. This means help is often necessary.
Since joining Helpx in 2011, my husband, Alfonso, already mobility challenged due to a motor-bike accident in 1970, had a fall and broke his femur. He spent 4 months in hospital during which time we were very grateful to all the helpxers who did some really good jobs in the house and, even more important, gave us both the moral strength to get through this difficult period. Alfonso still has many challenges in his daily life (me too!)
I need to go to the UK for a few days this November. In my absence a carer comes in to take care of Alfonso in the mornings. However, we need someone to stay with him in the afternoon and evening basically to keep him company and to make sure that he is safe. So there is a certain amount of responsibility involved. Up till now even helpers with no experience have managed fine.
