Clients are discovering the ideal solution is to hire a professionally trained couple to take on an all-round role. They offer the advantage of being close enough to work well as a team, the majority are married couples, and will support one another when faced with problems and challenges. Resident domestic couples are a real benefit when the family is away. They are able to take care of the gardening, pets and home security when you away and they can offer a very warm welcome when you return.
One of the overall benefits of hiring a Domestic Couple is that they are very likely to stay and work for one family on a long-term basis, which makes them very loyal and highly sought-after employees.
