Newsletter Grannies - Together we are less alone

Dear Ladies,

maybe you've seen the touching French movie "Ensemble, c'est tout" (Together, its everything) with the magical actress Audrey Tautou? It's about being alone, about true friends and naturally about love. Recently it was reported that just in Germany, 17 million people live alone. And that every third German between the ages of 40 and 85 has feelings of loneliness. This also holds true for many other countrys across the world. In Great Britain a ministry for loneliness was established at the beginning of 2018, which is to work against the growing isolation of increasing parts of the population. Japan followed with a similar ministry in 2021.

Almost everyone knows the feeling of being alone. Sooner or later it can happen to anyone. The families are small, relationships do not always last long, partners or friends leave us. Being alone is a scourge of present times, but the good news is: How ever bad it is, you can do something against it. The loneliness researcher Jenny Gierveld, herself now 83 years old, recommends: "Build up a circle of friends and take care of them". It's also good to have a hobby, like learning a foreign language, or looking for a new challenge.

Whether you feel lonely or not, today we want to encourage you to set out, to get to know other surroundings and new people. Have the experience of being needed. Be it small children in a family or an elderly person needing companionship - you can give each other so much! You will certainly not regret it. The encounters and experiences will strengthen you, give you a new perspective and new friends. 

If you also would like to meet new people, then take a look at the list of families from near and far. Currently about 50 families are looking for support from an experienced Granny or temporary companion. We would like to briefly introduce three of them to you below.

Very best wishes from

your Michaela Hansen und your Granny Aupair-Team

 

The Heart of England 

The heart of the famous historic city of Cambridge in the east of England is shaped by the university's architecturally exceptional colleges. But Cambridge also has a lot more to offer: Busy market squares, cosy tearooms, the Cambridge Fens close by and London only an hour away by train. In the centre of the university city, an international granny-experienced family (username: mrsgarden) with a six-year-old twin couple is looking for their next loving temporary grandma who also enjoys cooking and would like to teach the children a bit of her mother tongue as soon as possible. The children go school until the afternoon during the week, so the Granny would also have time for herself, for example to attend a language course.  A beautiful room with a private bathroom in a spacious house is waiting for the Granny. Travel expenses will be covered in full.
