A Family Assistant focuses on easing the parents’ workloads by assisting with light-housekeeping, laundry, household organization, grocery shopping, light pet care, transportation, and miscellaneous tasks upon request. These individuals may work alongside one or both parents. Family assistants are efficient and wonderfully supportive. As a result, families often find relief and extra time to spend with their loved ones on a day-to-day basis.
