A family assistant is the combination of a household personal assistant and a nanny in one role. Responsibilities vary greatly depending on the employer’s needs. A family assistant’s responsibilities could include scheduling appointments, planning family travel and logistics, performing administrative duties around healthcare, school, philanthropies, performing housekeeping duties, providing childcare, organizing the household and assisting parents with basic chores and errands. Some family assistants focus on the administrative duties of a home while others are involved more deeply with childcare and the home. Family assistants typically work full-time, and many assistants live with their employer.
