Family in Deerfield is seeking a proactive, caring and organized Family Assistant. Position will be a combination of household assistance and childcare. Candidate will arrive, and ensure that common areas and kids rooms are tidy (load/unload dishwasher, wipe down counters, do the children’s laundry, organizing/decluttering), run errands and grocery shop, keep supplies stocked, take care of projects (e.g., labeling linen closet containers; taking outgrown clothing to Goodwill), and schedule appointments. Family Assistant will then pick up children from school when needed, drive them to any scheduled activities, provide homework support and organize backpacks for the following day, prepare dinner for the children, and as time allows, engage them in activities, games, play, etc. The ideal candidate will be warm, detail-oriented, adept at running multiple schedules, savvy, and understanding of how a busy household operates. It is a plus if the Family Assistant is available for occasional weekend babysitting. Both parents work full time, one from a home office (although during COVID, both from home). Candidate must be COVID vaccinated.
