Looking for a flatmate to help look after my mum and aunt two hours a day in exchange for almost free rent (You just contribute $25 for bills) The room is the size of a studio and comes furnished with a king bed, large wardrobe, dressing table and couch. You will need to be available for two hours each day, 7 days a week, usually from Midday till 2pm, to assist with preparing lunch, ensuring the ladies complete exercises, do some cleaning and assist with outings. You will need a drivers licence to transport the ladies on small activities on certain days, like the School for Seniors at The Wesley Centre on Tuesday from 3-4:30pm, but you are welcome to use our car for such purposes. You will also need to assist with measuring my mum's blood sugar levels and administering insulin (It's fairly straight forward, but is not suitable for people with an aversion to needles).

Room available in my 2br 13th floor flat in the Blues Point Tower - McMahons Point. Your room is furnished with an oversized wardrobe, bed, desk, and floor to ceiling mirrors. Also, wall to wall windows facing the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. (View pictures are taken from the bedroom window) The rest of the flat is fully furnished, fast nbn, giant flatscreen, etc. Earliest move-in would be Saturday, July 1st. You'd be living with me: late 20's professional Canadian guy. Home is a getaway - not a party place. I eat well, enjoy the gym but also a social drink, and in general enjoy the relaxed pace here in McMahons Point. I run my own real estate business, and work partially from home, so would ideally be looking for a housemate who has a job/lifestyle that doesn't involve working from home. Looking for someone who shares the same traits: Professional, non-smoker, tidy/conscientious of others, and a glass-half-full mentality. I'm flexible on length of stay, open to any race/gender, but sorry, not suitable for couples. Rent is $370/week and paid fornightly. Send me a message if you're interested, cheers!
