Au pair host families looking for elderly companion & childcare take on au pair for a range of different purposes. This page provides useful information for host families.
Au Pair Services are mainly single, male or female, heterosexual couples with no dependants between the age of 17 and 27 years. Au Pairs come to the UK or another country as a cultural exchange to learn about the language and are treated as a member of the family in exchange for light housework and child or adult care. In return they receive pocket money, full board and lodging, and should have their own room and can reside with the family for 3 months and up to 2 years. The Au Pair is not employed by Oaktree Care Agency Ltd or the family and care should be taken for each respective native traditional family values.
The Au Pair will be responsible for paying for transport to and from the UK, however, the Host Family will meet the Au Pair at your point of entry whether it be an airport, bus/train station or port. Your Host Family will assist you in looking for suitable colleges to help you enrol on courses to study in the Host Family’s native country. All college fees are the Au Pairs responsibility, if you are an Au Pair within the EU countries and Adult Education Centres are near to a host family then you may be entitled to free classes and only pay the exam fees.
