Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Deutsch
We are looking for a supervisor for our 98 year old mother who lives near Freiburg. For her age, her health is still reasonably stable, even if her memory is getting worse. In addition, however, she has age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and is almost blind. She is also hard of hearing. We children therefore believe that she needs regular assistance.
 
In addition to German, our mother speaks English and French. she is interested in
Culture, art, music, religion. She is very open to younger people. she has four grandchildren aged 34 to 28 years.
After initially having a Portuguese au pair for a year, we currently have a Georgian language student who looks after her lovingly.

My sister and her 4 month old dog puppy still live in the house; I live in the Rhineland and come c. every 14 days for 3-4 days to Freiburg to check on the right one. Then I also bring my dog ​​with me - so only carers who like dogs are possible!
 
We do not care whether the person is male or female or what age they are. She should be optimistic, have some experience with her own grandparents and have nerves like steel cables. Because taking care of an old lady can be harder than taking care of small children. Both have their stubborn heads ...

We are looking for a senior caretaker for our 98 year old mother, who lives near Freiburg. Considering her age her health is still relatively stable. Unfortunately though, she has a macular degeneration in both eyes and is nearly blind. In addition to that she can't hear very well. My sister and I are therfore keen to find someone who is willing to survey her more closely.
Our mother speaks German, English and French. She is interested in culture, art, music and religious themes. She likes young people to be around - having 4 grandchildren between 34 and 28.
At first we hat a young woman from portugal who looked after her for a year - at the moment she has a language student from Georgia looking after her.

My sister and her 4 months old puppy live in the house as well - I live near Düsseldorf and come down to Freiburg every second week for 3-4 days - accompanied by my dog ​​so the au pair must definitely love dogs!

We do not mind, whether the person interested in this job is male or female. You should be an optimistic person, know perhaps a bit about the older generation through own grandparents and have nerves like steel cables. Looking after a 95 year old is sometimes more demanding than looking after little ones. They can be equally stubborn.
