The Experience

I need a helper who can assist me while I care for my partner who is 94 years old with amazing stories to tell. He is currently dealing with cancer but is lively, often active and enjoys conversation. We have nurses and doctors on board but I need help with the day-to-day events. I need domestic assistance, some meal preparation, housework, yard work, domestic help, driving (if possible), errands, yard work etc.

Evi and Ivan are a wonderful couple, as well as amazing individuals. They made me feel at home right from the start. They are both independent, lovely and caring persons. They have tons of stories to share of both their couple experiences and their own. I couldn't think of a better place to stay if you are looking to visit Gibson, or would love to meet locals. Evi took me on hikes with her and her group on Fridays, and also took me with her most of the time when she wanted to go on a walk or to the beach.

Evi replied

Orlane was a wonderful guest and volunteer. She is a thoughtful person, considerate and helpful. She enjoyed listening to Ivan's stories (even if he told them twice or more!) and reminded him to take his cane or walker when he went out.
She helped keep the garden thriving and educated us about France and many other things. She helped us both with our computer and internet problems and was always happy to make useful suggestions. She is a kind person, confident and organized. She has a lot of patience and was a joy to have on our group hikes.
I hope we meet again. We miss her already!
