Seeking household assistant


My wife and I (with two kids under 5) are looking for some daytime help around the house. Ideally this person would come by 2 or 3 times a week, for 2-3 hours, and help with:

  • Kitchen cleaning
  • Folding laundry
  • Organizing kids rooms and playroom
  • Meal prep
  • Occasional deep cleaning
  • Other odd jobs (assembling furniture and the like)

We live in North Oakland, and have a well-behaved dog. We are pretty flexible on actual days and times, but need somebody who is reliable and communicates well.

Let us know if you have someone in mind, or know of other places to post this or look for such a person. Thanks!

RE: Seeking household assistant ()

I have a recommendation for the "Other odd jobs" which are not generally included in a housekeeper's purview. Taskrabbit is great for "assembling furniture" and other small handyman

like endeavors. I used them for taking out a glass interior skylight and replacing with lucite---I was scared to do it and the gentleman did it seamlessly in about 10 minutes. Also, they assembled a desk for me, attaching the legs, etc.
