Sample 1: 89-year-old retired professional gentleman who likes word games and old time songs is seeking a housemate for companionship and help around the house. In exchange for some housekeeping, cooking and errands, the housemate will have a large private bedroom and bath and share a lovely air conditioned home. The home provider would be especially appreciative for someone who would read to him and accompany him on occasional outings. Small pets will be considered.
Sample 2: Maggie is a 71-year-old widow who lives alone (aside from her 2 cats) in a large mobile home in Mira Mesa. She is an active lady who walks daily and has many friends. She works part-time arranging day tours for people visiting San Diego on cruise ships. Her home is very neat and clean and has a large living room, dining room, family room, and patio. The available bedroom has an attached bathroom. She wants to rent the room to an active individual for $425 per month, including utilities. She would consider someone who smokes outside, but not someone with pets (hers don’t want to share).
