Household Staffing

Personalized Service


Housekeeper/Cook

Private couple in upstate New York (Medina) is in search of a Live In Housekeeper/Cook. The couple is busy running multiple businesses, and many of their company and household needs fall at the wayside. The housekeeper needs to be able to manage and perform daily cleaning duties. Cooking and errands will also be a good part of the job. They have dogs, and breed show Poodles as a hobby. The dogs are mostly taken care of by the Mrs, but there will be some duties related to their care, if they are out of town. There will be tasks that involve organizing their closets, and all other household items that they do not have time to keep track of, as well as bringing dry cleaning in, and keeping clothing, bags and shoes clean and in their place.

The couple will continue to have housecleaners come 3x/week on a regular basis for the basic cleaning (bathrooms, kitchen, etc) so that the person working in their home would be freed up to also handle personal affairs, phone calls, appointment setting, and errands. 

They hope to adopt in the future and potentially relocate as well, so someone who is flexible to grow with the family and go where they go. 

What Works Best for Family: They are pretty easy-going, but can be pretty demanding when the pressure is on at work. They also work from home, so someone who is able to manage their own tasks, and work alone while they run their day-to-day, while checking in with them on what is needed, periodically. Someone who can multi-task when they are asked to do something on the fly. Someone with a caring personality who is flexible and non-judgmental. They can get overwhelmed at times, and want someone working with them who is helpful at all times, when on the clock.
