Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Many thanks for taking the time to read our letter and for considering to be a companion carer for my parents John and Wendy.

My parents house is in Bakewell is in the Peak District, Derbyshire if you would like to Google it! It is a very quiet and peaceful and at the same time a lively town with quaint shops, cafes, a library and local swimming pool. There are lots of classes - yoga, art, choirs, church etc around and everyone is really friendly in the town. My parents have lived here there whole lives and are very kind, simple and rural folks, unlike me who moved to San Francisco and London for the past 12 years :) The location is very convenient because the house is so close to the centre and well connected by public transport. The nearest large towns are Sheffield 40 minutes away by bus, Manchester is 1hr by train, London is 2.5 hrs away on public transportation. There are definitely language schools in Sheffield.

Job Description

My parents need extra help around the house, attending appointments etc, light meal preparation and encouragement to do their exercices and take them walking around the town, food shopping and some laundry. |

There will be some variety in day-to-day schedules as they don't have hospital or doctors appointments every day or even every week - it varies. The companion would have a lot of time to themselves in between meal times and some household chores in the morning and a few meals to prepare outlined above (approximately 4 lunches a week). The main needs are shopping, laundry and encouragement to move more and take them out walking, on trips locally etc. I hope it will be fun job for the companion as well. I can provide a list of local places to take my parents out and suggestions for the companion to visit in her time off. Sometimes my Dad prefers to stay at home so it would be just my mum going out on short trips sometimes.
