According to the work references: Milner Family (Daughter of the employer) Reference confirmed
Yes Phindile worked for my father from 2011 until 2019 when he sadly passed away.
She was loyal to her working hours and would even work overtime when needed! She went out of her way for the family.
From 2011 until about 2016 my brother and I lived at home and she took care of us as well. When we both moved out my dad lived on his own and she took care of the house and him.
Ages of kids: 15 and 18 in 2011
Later on in 2015 my dad fell ill and could no longer work, not only did she carry on looking after the house but she became a caretaker for my dad.
My dad could no longer work which meant he was unable to give her an increase but she built such a strong connection with him and the family that she insisted on working on for him at the same salary from 2015 until 2019 when he passed.
To compensate for this she would come to my house twice a week to clean (from 2017-2019). She cleaned exceptionally well and worked hard. She was left at my home on her own to clean. Whenever I had additional requests she always did them with no complaints at all.
I have 5 pets and my dad had 2 pets. She is great around animals. She was responsible for feeding the animals at my dad’s house.
She took care of the home, cleaned exceptionally well, she was responsible for compiling shopping lists, she would monitor my dad’s health and ensure he took his medications when needed and ate his meals. She would go with him to all his dr and hospital appointments, she called the ambulance twice when it was needed, she was so kind and caring to my dad and would talk to him and keep him company
She was really part of the family
She is very trustworthy and loyal. She has a basic understanding of kashrut. She is able to cook basic meals (roast potatoes and chicken, beef mince and spaghetti, rice, roast veg etc)
She is able to take initiative and has experience doing this. She knows and understands what needs to be done and is able to take the initiative when needed.
Reason for leaving – my dad passed away, she lived on the same property as him and needed to find a new place to stay
