Bienvenue chez nous,

Nous sommes Jean-Louis et Mireille avec notre fils de 26 ans Alexandre. Nous avons accueilli des helpx pendant au moins 5 ans sur notre fermette à St-Gabriel et depuis un an, nous les accueillons près de Joliette où nous vivons.

Nous sommes un couple de retraités dont la vie a changé du tout au tout avec l'accident de notre fils il y a 4 ans et quelques mois. Alexandre finissait ses études en génie mécanique à l’université McGill quand il a été frappé par une voiture et a subi un traumatisme crânien sévère. Il est très volontaire pour toutes les tâches de la maison et du jardin mais son manque de coordination et des tremblements incontrôlables le rendent souvent maladroit, il a donc besoin d'aide pour nous aider. C’est un jeune homme exceptionnel qui se bat tous les jours pour améliorer sa condition. Il a toute sa tête mais il est prisonnier de son corps.

Nous voudrions que vous nous donniez un coup de main dans les tâches quotidiennes tant au jardin (en été) que dans la maison.
Alexandre circule en fauteuil roulant.
Il est un bon joueur d'échecs et aime aussi montrer aux autres à y jouer.
Il était aussi enseignant de jiu-jitsu et de MMA à l’université McGill
Il aime aussi les jeux de ''Magic''
Il parle français, anglais, espagnol et s’est mis à l’allemand

Nous habitons une grande maison à St Ambroise de Kildare récemment adaptée à ses besoins avec piscine chauffée (en été), grand potager et plusieurs chambres pour vous loger.

En résumé, nous cherchons quelqu'un pour nous aider et pour l'aider, l'accompagner aussi à ses différentes activités.
Vous devrez donc avoir un permis de conduire international ou posséder une voiture assurée ici ou ailleurs pour pouvoir utiliser notre véhicule en répondant aux normes de nos assurances.

Au plaisir d'entrer en contact avec vous pour toute question ou information supplémentaires. Nous n'avons aucune restriction alimentaire et prenons tous les repas ensemble à jaser, discuter et rire.



Welcome home,
We are Jean-Louis and Mireille with our 26 years old son, Alexandre. We have been receiving helpx for at least 5 years on our little farm and for a year now, in our home near Joliette.

We are a retired couple whose life changed dramatically with the accident of our son, 4 years and a few months ago. Alexander was finishing his mechanical engineering studies at McGill University when he was hit by a car while driving his bicycle and suffered a severe traumatic brain injury . He is very willing to participate in all tasks of the house and garden but his lack of coordination and uncontrollable tremors often make him clumsy, so he needs help to help us. He is an exceptional young man who fights every day to improve his condition. He has all his head but he is a prisoner of his body.

We would like you to give us a hand in the daily tasks both in the garden ( summertime) and in the house.
Alexandre circulates in a wheelchair.
He is a good chess player and also likes to show others how to play.
He was also a teacher of jiu-jitsu and MMA at McGill University
He also likes games of '' Magic ''if you know ...
He speaks French, English, Spanish and just started to learn German.

We live in a large house in St-Ambroise de Kildare recently adapted to his needs with heated pool ( summer time), large garden and several bedrooms for you to stay.

In summary, we are looking someone to help us in the house and to help him, drive him to different activities. Therefore you will need an international driver's license or own an insured car here or at home so that you can drive our car according to the rules of our insurance company.

Alexander would like to help us but he cannot always, so your help is essential for us.
Looking forward to getting in touch for any additional questions or information. We have no dietary restriction and take all meals together, talking, discussing and laughing.
