EXTRA HELP HOME-HELP SERVICES FOR THE ELDERLY
We provide a helping hand for elderly people who are still living independently and require assistance to manage their daily routines.
Our fully screened, DBS checked home-helpers are always on hand with a friendly smile, so you can be confident that you can continue to manage day-to-day tasks, whilst still maintaining your dignity and independence. We aim to always provide you with the same home-helper for all your domestic needs, so they become a real friend who you can call upon whenever you need them.
The ad-hoc and regular services we offer are as follows:
Domestic tasks and meal preparation
We can deal with cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, washing and ironing, to help you to keep on top of domestic tasks around your home. We can also help with meal preparation, taking into account your individual preferences and any dietary requirements.
Sometimes it’s difficult to get out to the shops, particularly in the cold weather or if you’re feeling a little off-colour. We can either take you shopping, or take your shopping list and do it for you, if you prefer.
Small maintenance jobs
When you’re living alone some maintenance tasks can be tricky. If you need some help with changing light bulbs or doing small repairs, we can provide peace of mind and help you to keep your home in full working order.
Sometimes having someone to sit and chat, watch a film or go out for a walk with can be just what you need to brighten up your day. Our home-helpers will spend time with you doing whatever you feel like doing, providing the company and reassurance you need.
We understand how important it is to stay in touch with friends and continue to attend social activities. We can provide safe transport and accompany you to social activities, day trips or appointments you may need to attend.
Dogs need physical and mental stimulation and can get frustrated if they’re not able to be walked regularly, which often leads to behavioural problems. If you have a dog but can’t always get out to give it the exercise it needs, we can walk it for you.
We can provide cover if your usual home-helper or family member is unavailable or going away for a period of time, whether it’s for a few hours or whole days to cover holidays etc.
Need less work and more play?
If you’ve ever wished that you could stop time or that there were more hours in the day, talk to Extra Help. We provide a range of services to help busy, working people to make the most of their leisure time.
When you’re working flat out, any spare time you may have is precious to you. Extra Help can take care of those essential chores while you spend time with your friends and family, relaxing and re-energising. Imagine coming home from work to a freshly prepared meal, or being able to spend the weekend relaxing in the garden rather than working in it!
And the best thing about Extra Help For Everyone is that we’re only available when you need us. We can provide you with regular or ad-hoc services, so you can call upon us to help out at times when life is particularly busy or stressful.
Our range of services includes:
You don’t always feel like cooking when you’ve been out working all day. Extra Help can prepare healthy and nutritious meals for you to come home to, taking any preferences and dietary requirements into consideration.
Cleaning, tidying & ironing
There’s nothing better than coming home to a clean and tidy house after a hard day. We can deal with cleaning, dusting, vacuuming and laundry to help you to keep on top of domestic tasks around your home. We can also take care of your ironing so that you’re never faced with a mountain of it after a day’s work.
Spending time in the garden helps you to de-stress and relax. We can deal with all types of garden maintenance, including weeding, planting and lawn-mowing, so it’s all ready for you to enjoy at the weekend.
Small maintenance jobs
DIY and household maintenance tasks always tend to take a back-seat when you have a hectic working life. You can call upon Extra Help to assist with many tasks around the home, such as assembling flat-packed furniture, putting up shelves, fixing leaky taps or wiring in light fittings, so your free time becomes your own again.
Dogs need physical and mental stimulation and can get frustrated if they’re not able to be walked regularly, which often leads to behavioural problems. But sometimes walking the dog is the last thing you feel like doing after a hard day. Or if you have a dog that stays indoors all day, we can walk it for you while you’re out at work.
