Happy new year from Your Happy Nest! If you're anything like us, you've probably made a list of resolutions to help improve and simplify your life. Have you considered hiring a Family Assistant to help you meet your new years goals? A Family Assistant is part nanny, part household manager. Skilled in both child care and household management; a Family Assistant works to support your family's lifestyle, giving you more time to do the things you want to do. A Family Assistant is flexible and can work with a family to create a unique position that adapts over time to meet the family's ever-changing needs.
Between work, managing a household, social obligations, and keeping up with family events, many parents find that the time they have available to spend with their children is rushed and overshadowed by a lengthy to-do list. A Family Assistant can ease that pressure by taking care of day-to-day household maintenance.
A Family Assistant can help with:
- Running errands, grocery shopping, shopping for household goods
- Menu planning, cooking
- Keeping the house tidy/organized
- Scheduling appointments (plumber, pediatrician, vet, etc.)
- Providing care for pets
- Organizing photos, music, and other media
- Maintaining a family calendar
- Transporting children
- Providing elder care
- Organizing events
Additionally, a Family Assistant is skilled in providing top-quality child care. Many families with a Family Assistant have school-age children or younger children who attend preschool for a portion of the day. During school hours the Family Assistant works on household projects, then picks up the children and cares for them until the parent(s) return home.
