I am Ed, 60 years old, although I am rather young by heart for my age. I'm looking for a care au pair, preferably for half a year or more (if we both are happy the way it goes) to help me here in Amsterdam. But minimum stay is for three months (grooving someone in properly takes quite some time and energy). Starting in beginning of Sept 2017. Stay here to see how it goes, get the feeling of it, the house and the city, and get worked in by our present care au pair.
I like the win win situation of having an au pair in the house. I am being greatly helped with my self supportiveness, and on the other hand we offer a great learning experience and an opportunity to live in this multicultural vibrant city. It is a cultural exchange, which makes this set up interesting.
I had a stroke in 2011, I was fully paralyzed, have been in a hospital and rehab center for a while and now, am still in a wheelchair but doing much better, working at full recovery still from home.
A 'click' is the most important thing, not previous experience. Everything can be learned. I'm looking for three qualities in a person, preferably a female care taker: managing the household, physical caretaking and good companionship.
I am already working - care and exercising - for years with a team of local caretakers, but it is simply not feasible to plan all the help I need during the week. So the idea of a live-in care au pair was born out of this need. And this has been working now for 2,5 years really well. We have had about 5 au pairs in those years.
As care au pair you will be the manager of the household (making sure we have necessary stocks, shopping, supervising everything runs well, making sure that chores are done by you or other caretakers) and you will be my main communication buddy in the house. I like to chat about many things (I'm interested in many things).
Our household is very open and positive and communicative and it is your house as well for the duration of your stay. I am therefore looking for an outgoing person, not somebody who is shy and withdrawn, and foremost stays in her room. The atmosphere is very open, unserious, lighthearted, we have lots of fun.
I like to go to the cinema, cook, love freaky modern art, generally go out, take care of plants, write frequently these days in my blog. This we do in the weekends (going to the movies, going out to festivals). During the week more time is spent on exercises, cooking and plants. The care au pairs we had brought me to bed Wednesday-Sunday (or five other nights), shared dinner then, and did the morning care once a week (showering, dressing, etc.). She was a sparring partner for me throughout the week when in the house, as well as a manager of the household and she did/organized nice outings in the weekend. So somebody needs to be full of initiative, not shy or withdrawn, likeable and easy with people. Our last care au pair was off two days a week, but when everything in the house was running fine, she had a lot more time off. Sometimes in the night, she had to readjust my pillows. It's really intended as a part time job. Our last care au pair ran her own company simultaneously, both jobs went really well.
We offer a monthly fee, separate room, free room and board, interesting surroundings, help. My appartment is situated very close to the city centre, everything in cycling or walking distance, next to a park and canals.
Care au pair must be female, EU citizen (we don't want to get into arranging visas), fluent in English (or Dutch), lighthearted, communicative, interested in many things.
In order to get the best possible impression for both sides, we first will meet in a video- or (if feasible) face-to-face interview, and really do a trial period of 1 month, etc.
Hope to hear from you soon. And if you have any questions feel free to ask me.
Kind regards, Ed
