I’m a Philly-based artist and community cultural arts organizer, age 51, seeking a mutually wonderful living arrangement in Philadelphia or surrounding suburbs.
I am looking to share a home with an elderly or disabled person who is practicing social distancing and mask-wearing outside the home, and would enjoy sharing their residence with a mature, easy-going person who is helpful, non-smoking, drug and alcohol-free, and who likes a quiet house.
I have no pets, but I would be happy to help care for yours.
I would need a non-smoking environment with wireless internet and access to public transportation. I would consider an area outside of Pennsylvania, if close to public transportation.
I don’t have many belongings and additional storage space is not required (but would be appreciated). I would love to have my own room, if possible.
In exchange for living in your home, I can provide assistance such as laundry, daily dishwashing, some basic housecleaning, cooking, errands, yardwork, etc. by negotiation. I am not a trained medical professional, but I’ve been a babysitter and could help as a companion with tasks such as medications. Simple editing, typing, and data entry could also be part of our arrangement, if desired. For clarity, I would want a written agreement regarding the amount and frequency of these activities so that it would be a fair exchange and be within my own abilities and schedule.
Extras: I am LGBT+ – friendly (and not a good match for someone who does not approve of LGBT+), am fluent in English, passable in French and Haitian Kreyol.
Available to move in as early as September 2020, and able to stay long or short term as needed. Excellent house/pet-sitting and personal references available.
