Helping out young families as “patchwork grandparent”?

Hello,

I am working on a social enterprise to match local grandparents with local young families, because so many families now live far from their grandparents. I think grandparents can be wonderful, patient helping hands and children can add lots of joy to a grandparents’ (patchworked or real!) life.

Would you use this?

Any feedback would be great!

Housesitter (a few hours) - occasional work

Hi, I have a small property portfolio I manage and I am looking for someone who can house sit when i need to book an engineer/workman.

I thought a retired person would probably be most suited as it is not frequent and I trust they would be reliable. This is not something i have done before and someone advised me to get someone who is CRB checked. So this is my requirement.

Also if this is not the right forum I would be most grateful for ideas of where i can find someone.

Details:

Normally in E14 8HS, E16 2DG, E16 4NG, NW3 4TU and else where in London

It is not a regular job by all means- if for example the boiler or cooker in one of the properties doesn't work and i need to book an engineer - normally 8-1 or 12-6, if i cant get a 2 hour slot, then i would like to call you, book the slot in then you go to the house to wait on the day.

Many Thanks

Rebecca

what a fantastic idea - I know I am always running out of ciggie papers late at night. sorry I dont live in Harlesden - this could catch on all over london - in fact its a necessity.

Tue Aug 14

great idea. I like nothing better than watching a movie and then pulling it to pieces after ha ha- there are not enough things for older people to do, but why just mix with older people ? there is a website called meetup,com or something like that. they will help you organise meetups in your area - they are more into sharing common interests rather than the age aspect. Us old gits need to keep our presence visible to these young folks who dont know as much as we do. I am a 76 year old lady but have not yet retired - dont believe in it.

Dog share / walker

We have a beautiful 10 month old cocker spaniel called Bella, she is well natured and probably the most loving dog we could have wished for.

We are looking for someone who may not be In a position to have a dog full time but would like a dog in there life.

neither I nor my husband realised the time and commitment having a dog would require and as we both work full time as well as having two young children Bella isn’t getting the quality of life she deserves.

We have thought about re homing Bella, but sharing would be our preferred option as she is now part of the family and our children adore her and would be devastated.

We are not seeking a financial commitment, just a companion for Bella during the day to keep her active. This could be anything from an hour or all day. details can be negotiated to whatever suites each family.

If you are interested please email me

Many thanks

The Retirement Show

On Saturday, 18th July, I attended the annual "The Retirement Show" at London's Olympia. There were many themes which were directed to the retired/semi retired/about to retire so I recommend the show as appropriate. Visitors may pre-register for a free ticket by logging onto website and following the links. If one does not have access to the internet, one can contact PRo Global Media, tel: **** ****37. Advertisments are displayed in the Retirement Today Magazine, Saga Magazine, The Daily Mail, the U3A magazine, Choice magazine and many other publications.

As you already know one thing leads to another so this show might lead you to daytime activities which may help you enjoy your retirement.

Over 60s Groups

In consequence of my pending retirement I recently did some research so that I may occupy my daytimes. I recommend readers to refer to their local Age Concern office as they may provide listings of local 'Over 60's groups as that is what my local Age Concern gave me.

Not that I have any experience as yet but maybe some of these groups may be very good. Well, they are an option as regards finding companionship and activities to enjoy your daytime!

University of the Third Age

Since I am about to retire my recently research discovered the University of the Third Age which is an organisation for the retired/semi retired. The U3A have local groups all over the place. I personally applied for membership as they offer a variety of daytime activities that look appealing.

The National Office has a telephone number which is (020) 8466 6139; (

I Faye. I was talking to my mother yesterday who complained how lonely she is and what you suggest must be common to many retired people, especially if they have lost their partner.
