Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hi future family member.
Let me explain why I'm looking to invite you into our homes.
With the merging of age and covid-19 I need some help. My grandparents and parents have become more dependent and in need of assistance. I'm looking for long term help but am flexible if you are willing to help for a shorter amount of time. I am looking for a family oriented person who will help me care for my family into the future. We are split over two houses about half a mile apart. We currently have limited outside exposure due to covid; for example we have groceries delivered or picked from the store. For you, we are very supportive of remote schooling and would like to offer some monthly amount towards your schooling. We would like to keep protective measures/away from large gatherings due to the age of those being cared for.
My gran is a tremendously brave, but now very frail, old lady, she needs protecting - even from herself. Her dementia has gotten worse. She doesn't always have a filter and asks the same questions multiple times. The doctors say someday she will need adult diapers due to her condition. It's not that I haven't cleaned such (and you would never be asked to do such for my granddad) but the potential need of "female" help to preserve her "modesty" - whatever modesty is still available to her.
This need has not come to pass and she just wants more company (due to covid she hasn't had much outside stimulation although there is a park less than a mile away I sometimes manage to convince her to go to)
The rest, parents and grandad, need help cleaning and making meals. They live .5 mile (one-half mile) from Ruth.
You would have your own bedroom, supplied with a bed, closets, and attached private bathroom. Along with Wifi.
I live a floor below Ruth, You would live a floor above her.

I hope you appreciate my candor - please treat me the same.

Job Description

Needs Cooking and housekeeping as well as general support and compassion for someone who is losing their mind to dementia, are very frail, and hard of hearing (they have difficulty in hearing). Although not yet there; potentially help dressing and washing. (my grandmother doesn't want my help as to preserve her modesty. There have been two occasions over the past 6 months such help would have been needed.) As we are split over two houses about a mile apart; cleaning, cooking, and maintaining doctors schedules (age related - nothing contagious), being able to drive would be beneficial.
