Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello Future Elder/ Senior Live In Helper / Home Share with Elderly :)

Kindly READ FULL PROFILE "BEFORE" RESPONDING to Make sure we are a "Match" :)

Thanks for understanding :)

We are looking for 1 thoughtful, kind, energetic, playful good hearted person : )

If you already had some English classes (B1) and want to improve your current skills, we can help : )

I am Rose, 55 female (youngest of 7). My fiance is 62. We have been together a long time. My mom Marie has a sharp mind with Italian background. Her mind is determined. Her body is fragile.

We live in New Jersey, USA. 5 minutes from the beach or the Atlantic Ocean. There is also a board walk and many nice restaurants. 5 minutes to a few towns with lots of restaurants and entertainment and shopping (large outlets). 15 minutes to Red Bank (also a very nice town esp in the winter). 1 hour+ from New York City. 5 minutes to local hospital(where I worked). Sometimes we travel to Florida.

I am a Medical Technologist (worked in the microbiology lab:), however, I switched to promoting health and wellness testing. I now work from my home office with some overnight travel too. (I am also a wellness coach and entrepreneur, time permitting :) We are college graduates (some years ago : ) We are very into health and nutrition and eating good healthy food (not too much junk food except for ice cream and chocolate :) But come from an Italian background so my mom loves Italian food!:) Please be willing to learn how to cook healthy and Italian meals too.

We love to stay physically fit and keep active. We walk on the boardwalk near the beach or hikes. Healthy lifestyle.
We Appreciate music. Fiance came from a musical family. Like movies, mom likes her game shows, and so much more! It would be much better if you have similar interests or at least enjoy to go for a walk.

We do NOT smoke or do drugs and we do NOT want anyone here that does either.
(NO smokers inside or outside)!

I enjoy a glass of wine a few times a year or so. That's it. We are NOT looking for drinkers or partiers.
We like a positive upbeat atmosphere. We know life happens but we try not to burden mom with any worries at this stage in her life. No drama. Just want her around a positive person. We love pets but do not have any at this time. We watch my sisters small dog on occasion. We love to go to see the animals at the animal park/safari. :)

Family Description

My mom has 7 children and many grand and great grandchildren. We come from a large Italian family. We will treat you like family.
Mom has a fun joking playful personality : )

- We would love to provide a great experience here for YOU too! :)
A good quality solid person with the same values and integrity is most important.

- We are Christian (Catholic). We really prefer if you are similar as we will share the same values.
We go to church. Read the Bible at times but should more often:)

- Mom and Fiance understands Italian and some Spanish, but speaks English.
-I come from Italian and French background (born in USA). I Took Spanish and French classes but don't remember all too much so it's important you have some English basics for helping mom.

Accommodation

I will provide a fully furnished bedroom, and bathroom. (the bathroom will be shared more so, when mom occupies the other bathroom).

There is also a kitchenette near the bedroom upstairs (small fridge and microwave oven and seating area). There is also use of kitchen, with new stainless steel appliances (stove- not shown in pics here), new front loading washer and dryer, internet and tv antenna, Roku internet tv, etc. (For your knowledge: A professional male good friend and good person in late 50's who lives in Pennsylvania (3 hours a way) stays here in the other private bedroom (has own private bath) since he works down the street at the Outlets as a Manager), so then he drives home once per week to save on time and gas. He is very busy working, married with adult children, says his friendly hellos and keeps to himself, and does not want any drama here, as we do not either. So you will hardly see him, and it will seem like he is not even here but just wanted you to know).

I do have a bike you can use, if needed.

Please ask if you have any questions and we look forward to learning about you and why you want to help out the elderly and explore with a different family :)

I am looking to make a decision once I find the right fit!

Thank You : )
