Hello! I am looking for some lovely lady to help me out with my family at home. I am a stay at home mum of 2 children (aged 5 and 2) and my husband is a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the local hospital. My elderly mother has joined our family now, she has Alzheimers and needs a bit of help and companionship. Mostly I need help with my mother (preparing her meals, helping her dress, talking to her etc). She has a professional carer visit every day to help her washing etc so this is not something our helper would need to do. There would be some cleaning work involved and her bathroom needs cleaning usually once or twice in the day.
My mum is from Syria originally so her native language is Arabic, but she speaks English. We speak English in the house. We have a lively and active household, my children are so much fun and so full of energy. We go out often on family days and as we live in a very beautiful part of the country near the sea, there are always fun places to visit and explore.
I imagine our helper would be working approx. 4-5 hours a day, and I would be happy for her to have 2 free days a week. We are moving to a new five bedroom detached house with a private garden in the next few weeks, and in that house there is a private room for the helper. She would be sharing a bathroom with my children.
My mother sleeps a lot in the daytime and this means the helper would be free for much of the time to study from home or relax. I try not to leave my mother alone in the house for too long, so we would have to work out a system that would suit everyone in terms of time to go out.
I am hoping to find somebody who will be a part of our family, who will bond with my mum and my children. Whilst I do all the meal preparation, I always enjoy help in the kitchen and somebody who will give me the occasional day off cooking!!!! As you can imagine in such a busy household, there are always small jobs to do, laundry to fold, things to pick up, children to play with ….
Making breakfast for my mother, cleaning her bedroom and bathroom. Making her drinks and assisting her to put on tv, go for a walk etc
Assistance preparing dinner, clearing up afterwards. Mum tends to be more confused in the evenings, so needs a bit more companionship and looking after. Help getting her ready for bed.
As a Muslim household, we dont have any pork or alcohol in the house
somebody cheerful and energetic!
