Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello,

I an enquiring about Senior Care for my Father.
He is currently recovered from a stroke (12 years ago) and a heart operation (at the end of last year).
My mother and Father are self-funded retirees and have just learned that there is not going to be any government supported care and really no affordable respite service in the private sector.
Unfortunately, for her after 12 years of caring for my Father, he has had a recent heart operation that has further deteriorated his condition. He has had a LVAD machine fitted, that now assists his heart operation. It is great because it has kept him alive, and restored some quality of life.

They have a large 2-story home in the Adelaide Hills, which could be perfect to host a live-in carer.

Job Description

We would ideally be looking for someone that can help Dad with safe mobility (He can walk with assistance of a frame), companion ship and some general hygiene. Toileting doesn’t seem to be a big issue for the moment, but could be in the future.

The goal would be for my Mother to still live with my Father, but get the ability to leave the home for extended periods to do the shopping, meet friends, see her grand children, or even have a night away every now and then. She has become a prisoner in her own home and she is far too young, able and lively to end her golden years in this way.
