Whether you live far away or are too busy to take time off work--you hate that, but it is a reality for many of us--let Help is Here help you.
HIH knows what you are going through. I was very close to my grandmother, she lived in Iowa and I live in Maryland. Her children and grandchildren were scattered across the country. Although she lived independently, she was frustrated much of the time:
Helping people who are experiencing my grandmothers struggles was one of the reasons I created Help is Here. Our family would have given anything for a service like Help is Here for grandma; I believe it would have prolonged her life. Once she lost her ability to go and do, she gave up.
Tell us you Seniors favorite music and a play list will be ready for them. Tell us your Seniors favorite snack or goodie and we will make sure we have it for them.
We all know how stubborn Seniors can be, especially when it comes to money. HIH will not discuss the cost of the service with your Senior. Many clients split the cost of the service among family members. A Gift Certificate is a great way to introduce your Senior to Help is Here…they won’t want to waste it, so they will use it!
Not only will HIH do the activity with your Senior, we will also do the activity for your Senior. It is not necessary for your Senior to go shopping, run errands, or take their pet to the vet/groomers, HIH will do this for them.
CAUTION: Some Seniors do not want to utilize a service for many reasons: they don’t think they need it, they are too proud to accept help, they are too stubborn to accept help, by using the service they feel like they have gotten “old”, and/or they don’t want anyone spending money on them. With that in mind, I will tell your Senior: “Try it once, I am already here and it is paid for…I don’t give reimbursements. If you don’t like me, the next time your daughter (or whomever booked the service) calls, I will tell them I am unavailable." Usually, once your Senior tries it they like it (Hey Mikey!). Remember, a Gift Certificate is a great way to introduce your Senior to Help is Here…they won’t want to waste it, so they will use it!
Transportation will be via your Senior’s vehicle. If your Senior does not have a vehicle, the services of Uber/Lift will be utilized (the cost of Uber/Lift will be added to the invoice).
