An English speaking cleaner wanted!
by Emma • Wembley
I am NOT looking for a carer!
I'm looking for someone local to my Dad that will come regularly twice a week for 2 to 2- 1/2 hours each time.
Ideally a Monday and a Thursday. It must be the same time and day each week and this needs to be a permanent position. It is vital for Dad to have these visits so please do not apply if you can't do this.
Please do not apply if you cannot speak English.
Dad is quite isolated and becoming quite frail but he doesn't need any personal care. I'm looking for a FANTASTIC cleaner. To clean the bathrooms, and kitchen and floors, to hoover, to change his bed sheets once a week, and put the laundry on. And to do any other cleaning jobs as we see fit. It is also to make him cups of tea, to talk with him if he wants to, just a chat, to check the fridge for food, perhaps over time be able to pick up some food for him - even go shopping with him, if he needs it (and if the relationship/bond is good). Please only reply if you can do all of the above. I'm asking for a cleaner who is trustworthy and who can make Dad feel supported. Thanks
English speaking is ESSENTIAL, as is the willingness and empathy to speak to an elderly man and feel comfortable doing so.
Please tailor your application to the role. Thank you. You also need to be local to Wembley.

Gardener needed to help elderly lady with sight loss and dementia Cheltenham
by Imogen • Cheltenham
My mother has always looked after her own garden and now needs help. She has a live in carer so no personal or domestic care is required. She has shrubs, borders, a leaking pond and gravelled areas. Access to a vehicle to drive her to purchase plants would be an advantage. The live in carer would accompany her. Initially may be extended hours to get garden sorted and then regular hours to keep it managed. I'm new to care.com and initially posted job under elderly care but this section may be more appropriate. I apologise if I have caused any inconvenience with my earlier posting and it's amendment.

Experienced Housekeeper Wanted
by Kimberley • Preston
I'm 28 years old and have recently become disabled since having my 3rd child whom is 3 months old and i am putting the energy and mobility I have into caring for them, which I still get regular help with from family and carers. I am struggling to maintain my house. I have 2 cats and a husky who sheds a lot of fur and I used to have to hoover morning and night in order to keep the place clean. I also have a very active 2 year old who can make mess with the blink of an eye so would like a thorough clean in all the places you wouldn't think to look.
We need a responsible, punctual and organised housekeeper with experience in cleaning and a DBS certificate. Duties include services such as; cleaning the downstairs toilet and sink, cleaning and tidying the upstairs family bathroom and the en suite in the master bedroom, hoovering the whole of downstairs, the stairs, landing and the 4 bedrooms. Giving the banister and rails a clean. Mopping the wooden floors downstairs (lounge, kitchen, dining room, downstairs toilet)and mopping the bathroom floors upstairs. Cleaning the windowsills and skirting boards in all rooms, general dusting and cleaning of furniture in the bedrooms and lounge, cleaning the baby changing table. Kitchen cleaning and general tidying, emptying kitchen bins and bathroom bins.
Just the general house cleaning that you would do at your own home.
Ideally I would like this all on one day of the week, preferably Monday and then have you back on a Friday (any time) or Saturday morning to Hoover the whole house. And once a month would like the inside of the windows cleaning.
I've never had a cleaner before as I used to be so fit and active and clean my house every day. I personally was able to do my whole house in a few hours so I'd say 2 1/2 hours Monday and 30 mins Saturday to hoover.
On occasion I may ask for extra help like putting the clean bedding on the beds or other things and either sacrificing other jobs so there was time to do that or see if you were able to stay a bit longer.
My dog is very friendly but any none dog lovers out there I will put him in the garden before your arrival. I'm looking to pay £8 an hour so £24 a week.
