The experience is just as described on the website. My job has consisted in helping Colleen for one hour (meal preparing mainly) and then working with Bob for three hours each day. The work is very varied (helping with gardening, tidying sheds...) and they are always very cautious about not working more than 4 hours a day. I had the afternoons and weekends free. During the afternoons I enjoyed playing petanque with Bob, spending time with the grandchildren and working out in his gym.On the weekends I did all sorts of activities in the area, and often they took me by car to see different places
