About us

Lesley and lives with her husband Tony and sister Debbie who has a learning disability. They have a friendly Staffie called Misty. The house is very spacious, light and airy with large kitchen/diner separate lounge and a good-size garden (which includes a self-contained holiday let.) The generous respite room has an ensuite with a bath and overhead shower though use of a walk-in shower can be arranged. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac a short distance from Teignmouth beach and town and lots of facilities.
Lesley is a bubbly and active carer who offers people a holiday experience and a chance to try new activities if they wish. She enjoys spending time outdoors at the beach, dog-walking, swimming as well as theatre, singing in a choir, painting, films and spending time with her family.
Lesley has many years’ experience as a district and specialist nurse and has supported people with a learning disability, autism, older adults, those with a hearing or sight impairment or low mental health needs. Preference is for someone fairly independent and relatively mobile. Lesley needs to consider her sister when matching.
