Frequently Asked Questions


Are services available 24/7?

Services are available Monday through Friday from 8am until 5pm. There is a minimum of 2 hours per visit. My services are available on a regular basis or every once in a while.

How is transportation with A Helping Friend different from taxis and similar services?

I pick you up at your home and help you prepare for your outing and the weather. I help you get to my vehicle safely, and once at your destination I do not “just drop you off”, but instead assist and accompany you as needed.

what if i need help after hours or have questions?

Once established as a client, when you or your family need anything, feel free to contact me directly any time of the day or night. I welcome all questions, concerns, calls, texts, etc.


do you provide services to those in nursing homes or assisted living communities?

Yes. I help care for seniors in every type of living facility.

Will i have the same caregiver every time?

Yes! I am the sole caregiver to each of my senior clients. A Helping Friend is a small company devoted to a small number of clients at a time.

Can you give me references?

Absolutely, just ask! Current and past clients and their families are very willing to talk to potential new clients about my services, my character, and the type of care that I provide. You can also view testimonials on this website, on my A Helping Friend Facebook page, and on Google.

Do you do housekeeping?

I really enjoy organizing closets, kitchens, garages and more. For regular housekeeping, another service is needed.
