Housekeeper in Grand Haven, Michigan
The "clicked" duties below would include part of my General Purpose House Keeping job description. If you added the cleaning of appliances, taking care of pets (walking or feeding) , shopping for groceries or household items, keeping records of above expidentures, meal plan and/or prep, or hand washing dishes, or taking to appointments, run errands, answer phone calls and take messages, this would be considered a Domestic House Keeper. Basement and/or attic clear out and/or clean up is definitely a job in itself, depending of course, on the individual person. I would be open to discuss completing these two specific jobs myself, or possibly with help of my choice. If I could not do either the job of the attic or the basement, I would, if desired by my client, help search for the best and "best for the money" professional company to complete the job not only BEFORE THE FULL PAYMENT is received BUT, The job is COMPLETED TO MY CLIENTS OR MY CLIENTS FAMILYS SATISFACTION.
This job requires an absolute respect. Not only for my client, but his or her loved ones; their children, brothers, sisters, spouses, dear friends, people of faith. I will RESPECT them. As I would pray they may respect me, the person placed here to care for, listen to, speak with, laugh with, and ultimately love; whether it be a short time or a very long time, or until they are healed and healthy again, or until their last day as a physical being on this crazy planet. I will RESPECT, listen, respond, practice PATIENCE at all times, and love.
Then of course, there is communication with my clients family. The people "in charge" shall be known to me BV BEFORE DAY ONE. I will not deal with family drama. Oh.... It's OK...My client can eat three donuts today, despite his diabetes. Or, it's just fine, my client can drive to the store by herself today, even though she has been physically diagnosed as 99% blind in her left eye...And 100% in her right eye! No. You are not in charge. I am. And so is"Sandy Says So" and/or "Tom Takes Care of It". Write it down EVERY where. Let everyone know. Communication is and will always come first. Without FULL and Honest communication from my client, my clients true representation, and myself, how can we be successful. Yes, you are hiring me to do a job. But is it really just a "job" to you? I know that it's not just a "job" to me.
Pay, of course, changes with job details and duties. I would be open to discuss all of the above options with some possible negotiations. Every person is different. Every person is unique. Every person needs and wants different things. I do NOT treat everyone the SAME. I can promise you this. I am wishful for your Loved One. I wish that they may live their entire lives without my help. I pray for this every day. God Bless. ??
