Independence Day For Senior Citizens | Helping them stay in their homes for longer …

October 2010 saw the launch of Extra Help, a new service created to help elderly people maintain their independence. Extra Help originated in Milton Keynes and has seen the service spread to Plymouth, South East Cornwall and Essex

we match home helpers to individuals to ensure a good relationship develops

Extra-Help was set up by myself, Claire Robinson, and my friend/business partner Sarah Jackson and was established to help elderly people with day to day tasks such as shopping, meal preparation and cleaning to enable them to stay in their own homes for as long as possible.

As a society, we are facing the problems of an aging population while at the same time people are working longer hours and living further apart from their relatives. Extra-Help has been created to allow elderly people to continue living independently in their own homes and provides their families with peace of mind that their parents and grandparents are receiving the help and support they need.

All Extra-Help home helpers are personally interviewed fully referenced and DBS checked  to ensure peace of mind for clients and their relatives. Extra-Help also ensures that it matches home helpers to individuals to ensure that a good relationship develops.

Services undertaken by Extra-Help include:

  • help with domestic tasks such as preparing meals and cleaning,

  • gardening,

  • ironing,

  • either shopping for, or with the client,

  • household maintenance such as changing light bulbs and small repairs,

  • dog walking,

  • providing transport and companionship services.

    Whatever your needs are, Extra-Help is designed to help make life as easy as possible and provide company and companionship as well. We hope that we will become seen as an essential service for families all over the country.

    Since the launch of Extra Help our services have evolved we now provide Extra Help to anyone who needs it, from the elderly to new parents and working professionals or just busy people requiring some help with their domestic cleaning.
