Working from home can be a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, you don’t have to deal with a commute, and you can be home with your kids as they go back and forth between in-person school and distance learning.
On the other hand, it’s hard to get away from work when your office is inside your house. And, even though you’re home with your kids all the time, you don’t get to spend as much quality time with them as you’d like. After all, you’re working!
That’s why a hybrid nanny can be a work-from-home parent’s dream come true.
A hybrid nanny is a nanny who takes on additional responsibilities on top of being a nanny. At Ease Family Solutions offers several hybrid roles for families in the Bay Area, including nanny/chef, nanny/housekeeper, and nanny/family assistant.
With a hybrid nanny, you can have somebody available to care for your children while you’re working, plus take care of other household tasks and responsibilities. That means on top of having someone to care for your kids, you can have someone making meals, cleaning the house, and managing schedules.
Then, when the end of the day comes and you’re ready to clock out of work mentally, you can enjoy the rest of your evening instead of worrying about cooking, cleaning, and managing your household.
Here are some specific ways you can benefit from hiring a hybrid nanny to help you as you navigate your work-from-home lifestyle.
1. You can focus on work
It’s hard to get work done when you can hear your kids arguing in the background or when you need to keep taking breaks to check on them.
Having a nanny in the house to keep the kids on track with their schoolwork and provide them with fun activities means you get to focus on work.
2. You get more quality time with your kids
The benefit of having time to focus on work is that you get more time to spend with your family at the end of the day. We’re talking quality time here.
Instead of spending your evenings cleaning the house, cooking dinner, and figuring out how to get your kids to their various practices and outings, you can simply spend time together.
3. You can take a break!
One of the most challenging aspects of working from home is finding time for yourself. You might feel guilty for wanting to spend time alone even though your kids are in the house with you.
Having a trusted childcare provider in your home can put your mind at ease so you can take more breaks guilt-free. Remember, breaks are essential for your well-being. When you’re refreshed and recharged, you’ll be more present for your kids and family.
4. Your family can get organized
Hiring a nanny is a great way to get more time in your day. Hiring a nanny who can also act as a housekeeper, chef, or family assistant can improve your entire lifestyle.
For example, a nanny/family assistant can take care of all those nagging tasks that interrupt your day, like managing your family calendar and scheduling appointments.
5. Minimize how many people enter your home
Many families are understandably cautious about how many people they allow into their homes during these uncertain times. Hiring a hybrid nanny means you can get the best of all worlds with just one person!
There’s no need to hire a chef, housekeeper, and nanny when you can hire one person to manage all these tasks.
Whether you’re committed to working from home full-time or are just doing so until it’s safe to return to the office, we can help! Hiring a hybrid nanny can allow you to focus on your work and family as much as you need to without worrying about housework or other small tasks.
