‘I have lived in Newcastle since I was married to my Gadgie. He passed away this year gone past and I get rather lonely at times. I have found I need more help than I used to about the house, especially with cooking and cleaning. I do struggle with my morning and nightly routine at times and often find I need some help getting dressed and getting in and out of the shower.
I don't drive anymore so I could do with some help getting out and about to the shops and to appointments. Keeping my independence is very important to me and I'm looking for someone to give us a helping hand day to day … as well as have a good gab now and again!'
