Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

WE HAVE FOUND SOMEONE WHO STARTS FIRST WEEK NOVEMBER SO WE WOULD LIKE SOMEONE FOR 2 WEEKS. WILL ONLY REALLY SUITE SOMEONE NEAR BYE WHO NEEDS A JOB FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

Elena is 84 and of Italian origin . She lives in London N14 . She is partially sighted and has Charles Bonnet syndrome which leads to hallucinations. That fortunately has mostly gone away. She resides in a nice house in North London N14 well connected to trains tubes etc and shops and a park are nearby ( take a look on google maps) . The guest room(s) are nice. There is a garden. The local College ( Southgate is 20mins walk , less but not much by bus ). She is supported by an adult son and daughter who live nearby. Elena currently has a full time career who is driving her nuts following her around the house which is her job. Me and my sister arranged that after she had been staying at mine as a a stop gap. She does not want or need a full time carer . We know she should not climb upon chairs and chop vegetables at 84 but she wants to and gets upset if we limit her. Elena was a highly respected early years and special needs teacher before there were such things. She wants someone part time who will be in the house overnight Though her house and road and area are absolutely nice and safe she feels safer if there is someone in the house with her, if she is at home without us .At 84 years old one never knows how the future will unfold. The right candidate will need to strike up a rapport with Elena. Elena has routines . As a family she value our mother and though she will spend time with us we eat to keep her home as her primary home. It may be you would like a trial period to see if this is a suitable situation for you. Happy to discuss via facetime/whatsapp/skype or in person.

Job Description

WE HAVE FOUND SOMEONE WHO STARTS FIRST WEEK NOVEMBER SO WE WOULD LIKE SOMEONE FOR 2 WEEKS. WILL ONLY REALLY SUITE SOMEONE NEAR BYE WHO NEEDS A JOB FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

Physically present during working hours and nights to assist with finding things and to provide reassurance. The Charles Bonnet ( seeing things ) seems to have calmed down . To provide conversation and companionship and help around the house mostly being her eyes . You will not be a cleaner or cook ( though helping mum see food items and small tasks such as peeling vegetables which she can not do and keeping an eye on the stove so she does not burn things is helpful ) Elena does not have dementia but like many 84 year old ladies who have lived through hard times ( WW2) has set ways of doing things. To assist her to make lunch and to tell her children ( us) if she is not eating properly. A walk maybe to the local park and similar. We don't require a nurse. Basically we are looking for someone who appreciates grandmothers.
