Looking for English speaking person, kind and compassionate, to cook one meal a day, and leave a light supper, for a lady, living alone, sees few people, diverticulitis, so very careful meal planning, short term memory loss, someone who is prepared to spend a bit of time to chat.

Thankyou for your reply, this lady lives in a small flat Laguna beach torrox costa.

A few questions. Do you have any experiance with the disease Divaticulitis? Inflammation of the wall of the intestine, so there are several things she must not eat.

Sorry to ask personal questions, but can you do plain cooking? What nationality are you,? We would need you to take her out for a coffee, she likes to take a walk. Any references? Shopping for her food. I have been able to buy most of the ingredients in Mercadona, suitable for her.

She is a widow, short term memory loss,lonely, very underweight, through not eating, and no family. My husband and I are just concerned friends.

Lastly what is your hourly rate ?

Please PM me don’t reply on the forum reply regards Jane drysdale

I have experienced diverticulitis within my work within the nhs but i have not prepared meals.

I am english and i am learning spanish.

I havent thought of an hourly rate as i dont have any experience of working in spain.   I am looking for a part time job as you can imagine i am retired but I do miss not working and caring for people.

Thank you

Thats ok.   Perhaps a menu can be put together.   I am quite willing to do some research regarding this.   Obviously my experience is caring and from what you have told me that would be part of the job if as you say the lady is underweight.

Hi

You have had a reply from a lady that is willing to help this elderley person she comes from a caring background. If you put a menu together of what this lady needs to eat then I'm sure this would be easily followed. I'm sure you would find it difficult to find a suitable person who has experience in diverticulitis. I would certainly welcome somebody who has offered to help with open arms especially if this lady is lonely and under weight which is obviously a concern.

Hello

I completly agree, Sara is willing to help this poor lady, elaborate a daily menu and am sure  Sara will have no problems preparing it. 

Kindly

Sally
