This role does include some basic cooking, helping to maintain Mikes home and some personal care, whilst encouraging Mike to be involved throughout. Mike has a good sense of humour and enjoys laughing and chatting with his team. Mike’s hobbies include playing computer games, listening to a variety of music, treasure hunting, gardening, metal detecting, and watching 80’s cartoons and films. Mike likes for his team to have shared hobbies whether it be gaming or gardening, films or music, he will involve himself more if you show interest.
