Job Description

SENIOR CARE AU PAIR JOB IN AMSTERDAM OFFERED HELLO! I am looking for a person who likes a new challenge in life and would like to come and live in Amsterdam and take care of a handicapped friend. Ed had a stroke in 2011 which left him fully paralysed, but with a lot of will power and positivism he recovered a lot of strength again, and is still improving. He lives by himself in a very nice apartment in Amsterdam, and has a team of care takers to look after him. But what is missing is somebody who can be his right hand, one who can be in charge over everything. It concerns an officially contracted parttime position, live-in, and with a minimum stay of 6 months. Requirements for the position are EU nationality or having a valid work permit for the Netherlands. Some experience in the care taking field is desirable but not a must. A willingness to learn is most important. And fluent in English and a minumum age of 20 yrs old. The main duties are: manager of the household, care taker, good companionship and being the right hand of a handicapped man. There is an uplifting and positive atmosphere, Ed is an intelligent and funny man, good location in Amsterdam and a great learning experience in an awesome multicultural and vibrant city. Working since 2014 succesfully with live-in au pairs. Lots of experience with this. Here is some data from Ed himself. To give you some background. My name is Ed, am 62 years old, although rather young by heart for my age. Have a good sense of humor. I had a stroke in 2011, was fully paralyzed, and have been in a hospital and rehab center for a year and now, allthough still in a wheelchair but doing much better, and walking a bit again, and still actively working at full recovery from home. I live by myself and work on a daily basis with local care takers who come and take care of me in the morning (showering, dressing, breakfast) and in the afternoon do fysiotherapy with me. This works well and it is a great team around me, but I am missing a manager of the household, who can be my right hand, do part of the morning and evening care taking and be my companion in the weekends. For this reason it is a live-in position. Parttime. Our last care au pair ran her own company simultaneously, both jobs went really well. I have been working for almost 5 years now with a live in care au pair, who stayed with me from 5 months up to a year. And this makes it possible for me to comfortably live at home. 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. Our household is very open and positive and communicative. I am therefore looking for an outgoing person, not somebody who is shy and withdrawn, and who 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 vegan, love freaky modern art, generally go out, take care of plants, write frequently these days in my blog and writing my second book. Like to go out in the weekends, going to the movies, going out to festivals. During the week more time is spent on exercises, cooking and plants. Working days are Wed to Sun. Au pair is off on Monday and Tuesday. But lots of time to spend by yourself, even on working days. 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. 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 have a trial period of 1 month. Hope to hear from you soon. And if you have any questions feel free to ask me. Kind regards, Ed
