Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We (Andrea / Bettina) are looking for a carer for our 99 year old mother (near Freiburg i.Br.). Our mother's health is stable for her age, only the memory drops sharply and she is (macular degeneration) almost blind and extremely hard of hearing.

We are looking for a happy person who accompanies our mother through the day and motivates her to play, go for a walk and talk. It is important that the person works in a structured manner, is stress-resistant and independently accompanies our mother through the day. Our mother likes to have young people around her, she has 4 grandchildren & 4 great-grandchildren (children of Andrea).

Work experience desirable; Experience in caring for the elderly is an advantage.

Our mother speaks German and English / French and is interested in culture, art and music. She used to like to travel.

I (Bettina) live in the parents' house, work full-time and coordinate / supervise all helpers. My dog ​​lives with me in the house. My sister and her dog come to visit twice a month. So only helpers who also like dogs come into question!

A household helper is coming 9 hours per week. Lunch is delivered on work days.

The carer (regardless of age / nationality etc.) should be optimistic & very patient with old people.

Since autumn 2017 we have had various senior caregivers who have accompanied our mother. As agreed, our current helper will return to her home country, but hopefully return end of October 2021. We are looking for her successor during the summer time. If she cannot come back, the stay can be longer.

The offer is aimed in particular at candidates who want to improve their German language skills with a view to studying / working at a later date.

Offer / requirements (to be discussed in individual cases):

- FULL-TIME JOB: 33 - 40 hours / per week and 5 weeks of paid annual leave
- 1 day off per week
- 3 months with an option to extend
- Net income approx. 800 EUR - 1000 EUR (without language course)/ month (depending on the number of hours and tax status)
- Board and lodging as well as tram / bus ticket for local transport

- Language course, if possible during pandemic times: on 2 afternoons per week (costs: to be discussed).

- Language skills: English B2 and GERMAN A2 (in exceptional cases, English or French is sufficient); OR (if you have no knowledge of English) German B1

- NON - EU citizens need a VISA and working permit. As a rule, prerequisite: completed, relevant (for the job relevant) professional education (nurse; physiotherapist, possibly doctor or psychologist etc.) . The equivalence has to be recognized BEFORE starting the job with the German authorities (the prcedure usually takes 4-5 months).

I exceptional cases we can offer an AUPAIR job or language student job with pocket money and up to 20 hours language course per week.

Kindly send a detailled application in English , French or German. Yours sincerely, Bettina and Andrea (daughters of Mrs. URSULA)
