Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


I am writing this invitation on behalf of my Mother, Eileen.
She is 80 years of age and, in general, in good health but recently is undergoing tests for what appears to be early stage cancer in her buttock area. A pretty rare diagnosis.
She is in good form but my family & I expect that she may require some radiation treatment in the coming weeks and therefore shall need some additional assistance in relation to driving, preparing meals, laundry, bathing, etc.

Eileen is a very easy-going person and loves to read the paper, watch TV and generally relax.
The family hired an American Caregiver for her for 12 months when my Dad, her husband, passed away 8 years ago and the two of them had a great time. It really helped Eileen to get through her grief at that time.

Eileen lives one mile from the town of Tralee. It is only a 20 minute walk into town from her house which provides all different shops, classes, pubs, restaurants, etc.
Tralee is also very close to the Atlantic Ocean so there are many lovely beaches nearby and lovely Irish scenery.

Eileen does not own a car but would hire a car, as required, if the Caregiver was to drive her for any appointments or if she and the Caregiver decided to go on trips on occasions.

Tralee is in County Kerry and is a beautiful part of Ireland. I have personally hired many foreign Au Pairs for my children over the last 16 years and most of the Au Pairs return to see us quite often as they all really love Ireland.

Job Description

The key duties for the Caregiver's role would be to primarily maintain Eileen's house for her and ensure that her shopping is carried out and meals are prepared for her and the Caregiver.

Eileen is not a very early riser so this may or may not suit the Caregiver but a matter that can be worked out.

The Caregiver can ensure each day that the house is generally cleaned and provide support for Eileen if she needs it in getting dressed or showered. These are not issues at the moment but I am highlighting that they could become required duties if she did need to have treatment.

Ensure laundry & ironing is done regularly and weekly shopping is done to suit Eileen and the Caregiver's requirements.

Also if she did have to go on hospital appointments to Cork, approximately 100km away, the caregiver could drive Eileen to these appointments in a hired car provided by Eileen and provide assistance to her if a family member could not attend on any given occasion.

All details and remuneration can be discussed and agreed with any potential candidate.
