  • (1888PressRelease) March 02, 2012 - London - The web platform Aupairnet24.com, which fused with Besser Betreut GmbH in 2010 and enjoyed a relaunch in 2011, has seen a significant rise in gray-haired au pairs joining the site since the beginning of the year. Increasingly more older people are seeking new ways to expand their horizons and take on new challenges.

    They are generally over sixty, long to travel and consider working as au pairs the ideal opportunity to experience things they weren't able to accomplish earlier in life. Today au pairs are no longer expected to be young and the number of Aupairnet24.com users over the age of sixty reflects this growing trend. Some married couples are even applying as a team, looking to go abroad together and share the childcare and household duties while experiencing new places and cultures.

    "We are delighted by this development and certainly support these seniors' new endeavors to implement and compliment their skills abroad. The desire to travel, learn foreign languages and experience family life internationally is something common to all generations," Manuel Nothelfer, Managing Director of Besser Betreut GmbH, confirms. "Aupairnet24.com offers an international platform through which au pairs of any age can access a worldwide network of host families."

    While traditional au pairs are often at the beginning of their careers in childcare, pensioner au pairs bring life experience, a heightened sense of responsibility and tried-and-true culinary skills to the table. Families worldwide are responding positively to the older au pairs' sense of adventure and desire to make productive use of their time and energy in retirement.
