  • This amazing lady lives alone at 103 years of age in her apartment on Girouard Avenue. She does not have children and has one niece that visits twice monthly. She was an art history & history professor at the prestigious Jean Brébeuf College and traveled the world twice on her own (boy must she ever have stories to tell!) Given her age, she must have taught some of our well known politicians who studied there. She is very isolated as she does not leave her home and walks minimal distances with a walker. Someone with a good knowledge of history and art history would be an ideal and suitable person. She would like a French speaking volunteer, preferably female. | Place of work: On location Read more...
