Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello,
My name is Karl I live in a relatively large home in Fairfax, Virginia with my wife, who is suffering from mild dementia. I need assistance in managing the household and keeping my wife engaged during this difficult time when our options for travel and visiting friends and relatives are very limited. I would be looking to have part time help, but given the current situation, I believe that live in help would be best.
We have an ideal situation for a live in person. We have 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in our home with a very nice live in basement area which is well separated from the rest of the house and has a separate entrance. We have a second car for use by our au pair and would share meals to minimize expenses. I would share pictures of our neighborhood and and the inside of our home in advance to help you make a decision.
In the past we hosted a Chinese student in our home for 2 years while she attended high school.
We have a very cute puppy that we bought to provide companionship during the Covid pandemic. She is a small cross between a poodle and Cavalier King Charles (Cavapoo).
We live 25 minutes from Washington DC. It is a wonderful place to visit, with lots of museums and other interesting activities in the area.

We look forward to speaking with you on Zoom.
Karl
