We all need a helping hand from time to time
Close to Hand is going from strength to strength. The online community, originally launched to connect older people with local home helpers, is naturally evolving to provide help to people at every stage of their life as and when they need it.
We are opening up the service following a demand for extra help from a younger demographic, people just like Cal, a working mum of two, who found herself in desperate need of a spare pair of hands after a skiing accident left her out of action for a while.
Another client, a widower, made contact with a local Home Helper to help with the housework and teach him how to cook and to draw up a weekly shopping list.
Somethings will never change
The emphasis of Close to Hand remains the same – local, flexible, affordable help at home on your terms.
What this means for Home Helpers is that there will be a greater variety of jobs available to apply for and new ways for you to provide practical help and companionship to people in their own homes.
We are also looking to expand the range of services on offer, for example we will be introducing a handyman service.
As part of this growing community we value your feedback, so please contact us with any ideas you may have.
