Domestic Couples are couples who provide a range of household services, such as housekeeping, cooking, laundry and errand running. A domestic couple usually consists of two people who work as a team to manage the daytoday operations of a household, typically for an individual or family. They are often employed in private homes or estates, and may also be found in corporate and hospitality settings. A domestic couple can provide a variety of services, depending on the needs of the employer. Some couples specialize in taking care of the children, providing childcare and educational support, while others focus on housekeeping, cooking, laundry and other household duties. Some couples may provide services such as errand running, grocery shopping, gardening or pet care. Domestic couples are typically hired on a fulltime or parttime basis and may be responsible for managing the budget and staff of a household. They must be able to work independently, and must demonstrate excellent communication, organizational and problemsolving skills. Additionally, they must be able to adjust to different environments, as they may be required to work in different homes or in different countries. Domestic couples provide an invaluable service to those who need help with their everyday lives.
