My name is Helga I have 2 grown up children, 1 of who lives at home – Harrison who has Asperger’s. I have enjoyed watching Harrison grow into wonderful independent young man and would like to offer our happy home up to others to share our experience and enhance our lives.
About our house
A spacious bungalow on a country lane with level, easy access front and back gardens. The home overlooks both Bodmin moor and Dartmoor, with cows and sheep grazing in the fields.
Who else lives here?
Craig is my husband and Harrison my son who is 25.
Preston and Alice our tiny Yorkshire terriers and Edward the Cow in the field who enjoys eating carrots and having his hair brushed!
What we like to do
Walking our doggies, days out to the beach and getting a bite to eat for lunch
I enjoy spending time outside with my animals and in the garden
I enjoy meeting up with friends and meeting new people
In the evening Harrison helps us pick a good movie to watch as a family and we enjoy eating some nibbles and spending time together as a family.
Our experience as carers
I have previously worked in a hospital setting and spent time volunteering in day centres for people with a learning disability. Preston and Alice were assessed as therapy dogs with Caring Canines and we visited local residential care homes together to give people the opportunity to bring happiness to their lives.
I have been a parent carer for 25 years and am very proud of my son’s achievements.
Who we can support
Anybody who would like to come and have a break in the country.
