Hello my name is Mary Heacock and I live in Kingston Washington on the beautiful Hood Canal. We have just under an acre of irrigated lawn/orchard. With a small garden that I would love to increase. I have multiple sclerosis and am basically paralyzed. My husband works from home but has to go in one day a week for work. We have a huge extremely efficient home for just the 2 of us. We would love to find a caring individual or couple who would like to share basic household help and basic caregiving duties in exchange for their own wing of the home. I am no longer able to get upstairs to the master suite., Which includes an incredible whirlpool tub and approximately 2000 ft.² of living/storage space in 2 rooms. So you would have to live with that hardship. I am very apprehensive of bringing strangers into my home because a recent caregiver robbed us blind! We are really looking for someone who can really fit into our family. I am hoping to find like-minded individuals to grow and learn with. We are also considering getting a service dog to help me and any caregiver would need to work with training the dog as well. I also enjoy being extremely active, but am often unable to do so on my own. But I would truly love to find somebody who would just push me a bit!
Anyway, I know this is a bit different but any thoughts or ideas that anyone has I am certainly open to suggestions.
Thanks for all the great advice I know is headed my way!

Sorry to hear abut your hardships. I would be interested in learning more about this opportunity to help you and your family. The place sounds lovely. What kind of help would you need? I doubt I'm the perfect fit because I am a male, but I figure it would be a shot in the dark.
Listen. That's my theme music. That's how I know I'm a super hero. That, and this tiny ad told me:
