Family Assistants/
Household Managers

How do we define a family assistant and household manager?

A family assistant is someone who blends together household care and childcare. Usually our clients look at this role once their kiddos are 5+ in age, because the kids being in school for a partial or full day frees up some time for the employee to get some household items tackled. We commonly see this role integrated into households where there are multiple children.

A household manager works primarily within the household components of your home with limited supervision of the children being required. They assist with errand running, meal prep, grocery shopping, talking with contractors, managing other household staff, and assisting with driving kiddos to and from activities.

We use these terms interchangeably and often times will advise on which fits best within the households we support.

Nailing the placement of these positions is KEY in the success of your household flow. Keep in mind, we've been running these placements for 12+ years and we'll guide you through the roles and responsibilities that work best when constructing the position!
