Job Description

We are looking for a cheerful and capable companion for my mother-in-law who is 84 years old and very independent still but frail and on medication for pain relief from cancer. She lives in the South of France about 45 minutes from Nice. The companion will have their own studio / bedroom and bathroom in a separate small house next to the main house. Driver's license is essential as the car is the only means of getting around - to shops etc - my mother-in-law is well able to drive still but both for every day tasks like shopping for groceries and in case of emergency the companion must be able to drive her around. Some experience of the role is essential. Must be willing to cook and plan menus of healthy food for each meal and to tidy and clean up - there is a cleaner and it is an easy house to manage but the companion will be expected to help her with watering plants, hoovering, keeping bathrooms clean and laundry / ironing etc. There is not much to be done when she is alone but when family come to stay there is more of course although we largely take care of ourselves. A working knowledge of French both written and spoken is also essential to help answer calls, talk to the the district nurse, pay bills and be of effective help with chores and shopping when it is needed. She is a highly intelligent and very alert and kind person who loves to have company so to look after her is not hard work! Salary commensurate with experience.
