About Me:

I am a fit, active 64 year old woman who took early retirement from my Workforce Development Manager for a local authority Social Services department 8 years ago. I returned to teaching, and then emigrated to my house in France. I completed a live in care training course (and had my DBS check done) in February 2020, and then Covid 19 hit travel. I'm a patient and understanding woman with a zest for life. I enjoy pottery, cooking, walking, reading, word games, writing and keeping in touch with my grandchildren in the UK. I cared for my 92 year old Mum for several years before her Alzheimers progressed too far, and she went into care. I started a small business when we moved to France. It is a house and oetsutting service. You can take a look at us on : www.dbhousesitters.com I cannot work within a smoking environment.
