Pleased to meet you!

At Care For Family we’ve had almost 20 years experience working in community based organisations, caring for people of all ages and at all life stages across many cities. Our founder, Ruth Samer, began this service when she needed assistance with child care for her own young family as her career at the time took her overseas for long periods, and she couldn’t find anything affordable with excellent quality at the same time. She established one of the first Au Pair agencies in Sydney and has not looked back since.

Ruth has a background in both business studies and human resources, and has continued her studies in careers counselling and community development.

She is an accredited trainer and has provided training for both private companies and TAFE across multiple subjects including business studies and Aged Care.

Ruth also volunteers her services as an employment counsellor, with an organisation who provides crisis accommodation and other emergency family services.

Her passion and experience in placing highly skilled workers (who between them are fluent in over 15 languages!) to provide services for elderly, children and people with disabilities have been the foundation behind our success. Today, Ruth Samer continues to lead Care For Family and provide a warm, friendly, helping hand for the hundreds of families supported by our team.


We would love to hear from you Get in Touch
