Family Assistant

Family Assistant helping with cooking One of the things we love about being in business for nearly 20 years is that we have seen the household staffing industry evolve a great deal. As children grow up, families needs change, and we have recently seen the emergence of a new position: Family Assistant. This position helps parents manage their household workload, and is a hybrid of some of our other positions: personal assistant, driver, cook, and housekeeper. In short, Family Assistants jump in and assist wherever help is needed, and look for opportunities to keep the household and family’s lives running smoothly.
