Our Helping Hands service enables those of retirement age to hire one of our team to help at home. A home helper - an extra pair of hands for practical and administrative tasks (see examples below).
This is complementary to our regular project management service and many of our clients move seamlessly from a home downsize to having a home helper.
We can provide this service to you at home or remotely, or a combination of the two. We can help regularly or as a one-off. We will send you the same person every session (sickness and holidays permitting).
Our service is available to those over 65 and/or those with a registered disability. We cover all of the SW postcode area as well as parts of West and Central London and some KT and SM postcodes. We are growing fast so if you fall outside of these areas and would like to hire one of our team, please do get in touch and we will see what we can do.
We welcome enquiries from adult children who would like help for their parents. After all, why spend all your time on the phone to utility companies or sorting out printer cartridges when you visit, when you could spend time walking in the park or having lunch instead?

“Clare at Helping Hands has been really helpful in sorting out my emails and daily communications as well as running errands when we need her to. We couldn’t do without her now! We enjoy her company and would be lost without her!”
