Missouri & 24th: This amazing caring family lives in a gorgeous estate near the Biltmore Resort on an acre of land which includes a private casita on property.  They are seeking a specific niche of a live in domestic candidate/  or live in estate couple to completely isolate / self-quarantine in their private separate casita to assist with household tasks, cooking, shopping, and all domestic duties that keep a household running smoothly and efficiently.  The guest house has a private bedroom, living room, kitchenette, and bathroom. This position is full-time (flexible 40+ hrs/week) for a minimum of 3 months but most likely will extend for months beyond that.  The exact full-time schedule will be worked out with the candidate and the family depending on the needs and schedule of the family so flexibility is needed.  The principal is a 74 year old woman who was just recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.  Her three daughters and their families are assisting in caring for their mother and her estate to make sure her health is priority and all of her domestic needs are met.  One daughter lives in AZ and 2 daughters live in CA and they have all 3 collaborated together (with their children) to give their mother the best care possible during this time of need.  The daughters and their children have rented a separate large house in Arcadia where they will be living so as not to all be under one roof at their mother’s house in PHX.  The number of adults in the mother’s house will be changing/in-flux — but approximately 2-4 at any given time. One of the daughters will always be present day and overnight caring for their mother however they are seeking a live in family assistant or a live in couple to live in their mother’s private guest house on the property and to assist with any and all household duties to help lighten the load so that the daughters can tend to their mother and give her quality care.  The domestic candidate will not be taking on caregiving responsibilities for their mother.  Due to their mother’s health condition and compromised immune system, they are taking isolation and Covid CDC guidelines extremely seriously and are likewise needing the same from the live in candidate or couple.  Any candidate(s) they consider must be able to commit to staying on property and living in the casita full-time 7 days a week 24/7 without returning to their home or socializing.  The candidate will be given at least one full day off every week as well as half days off / large breaks throughout the work week depending on the family’s schedule.  The family is also desiring the candidate to tend to household duties at both their mother’s PHX home as well as the large rental home in Arcadia where the family from out of state are living. So the duties and reponsilbisibile will be split in both households.  They are open to a live in couple who will follow the quarantine rules and are willing to self-isolate in the casita and follow all CDC guidelines.  If they select the couple, an extra perk would be if the male candidate is also available to assist with landscaping, handyman work, house projects, pool maintenance, etc.  (not mandatory but would be helpful and compensated accordingly).  Important needs:  must like children, be flexible, a team player, willing to cook simple meals for the family, willing to clean and do laundry). Duties/Responsibilities include:  housekeeping, laundry, cooking, light meal prep & serving, possible help with 74 year old mother.  There will be an assistant on hand to run errands and shop so that no one has to leave the property or it is limited.  No pets.  Ideal qualities and characteristics:  pleasant, flexible, good attitude, cheerful, energetic, willing to support a family in crisis including 74-year old Mom with 3 married daughters ages and their families which includes 7 cousins ages 6, 8, 12, 15, 15, 16 & 18.   Everything is evolving (new diagnosis/need) in real-time so it’s hard to understand the full scope.  Compensation:  $25-$35/hr, flexible DOE.  Starts ASAP.

FULL-TIME NANNY/ PRIVATE EDUCATOR POSITION IN SCOTTSDALE, $20-$22/HR, ASAP
Mountain View & Via Lista: This busy professional returning family with 3 active boys is seeking a mature, firm, structured nanny / educator to care for, teach and keep their sons organized. Typical schedule is M-F, from 8-4 or 8:30 – 4:30, with flexibility. Both parents are still working from home due to Covid. Their sons are 10 years old, 7 years old, and 4 years old. Their family has been completely isolated for months and not socializing or taking any risks whatsoever. Mom works completely from home and will continue to do so. Dad sells medical devices to the OR and is currently working from home and if he needs to go into a hospital down the road, he will quarantine in an airbnb before returning home. The upcoming school year for the 10 year old and the 7 year old is still uncertain – whether they will do online schooling the entire school year, return to school at a later time or do a combination of online and home schooling is still to be determined. If the 10 year old and 7 year old continue with online schooling, the nanny will be responsible for supervising them and keeping them on task and organized with their school work but the primary focus will be on the 4 year old. The 4 year old is planning to start kindergarten at Basis for the 2021 – 2022 school year so the nanny’s primary focus this year will be on preparing the 4 year old for kindergarten and teaching him how to read and write so he is prepared for the advanced curriculum. The 2 older boys have been completing the homework packet for the summer and will be returning in 3 weeks to the virtual classroom, from 8AM-4PM. The 10 year old is extremely responsible , listens well and is a straight A student. He is friendly to everyone, and doesn’t like to be rough and tumble. He’s artsy and expressive and he’s a helper so he’s an asset and will be the right hand man to the nanny. The 7 year old is your boy’s boy and has a lot of energy and likes to engage in activities. It’s a struggle with him with online learning and he is rowdy and needs to get up and walk around and move in between classes to get work done. He likes to verbalize himself a lot, and he can get under people’s skin when he’s bored. He needs structure to stay on task. For the 4 year old boy, everything is no, he’s described as being super head strong, stubborn, and a challenge. This family has been with us for years and we’ve placed nannies in their household and both the nannies and the parents are very honest in saying that the 3 boys are not easy to care for. A strong structured nanny is needed to enforce rules and discipline and to keep the boys in line. Mom said they need a “drill sergeant and not a timid nanny.” Must be comfortable with both parents working from home. An ideal nanny would share the family’s philosophy that she is a care provider but also an educator. The best fit is going to be a nanny who will consistently implement a daily schedule that ensures their kids are meeting or exceeding their milestones.  They also value a nanny who can keep up with the needs of the household – kids laundry and meal prep, for example, time permitting. Pets: 2 cats and a dog. Compensation: $20-$22/hr. Starts ASAP (REF#MMSC)
