August saw the launch of Extra Help into Warrington, run by Loren Connon, our newest franchisee. Extra Help is a comprehensive service initially created to help elderly people maintain their independence but quickly expanded its services to include busy working professionals ...

We're pleased to be able to help just about everyone who needs it, on either an ad-hoc or regular basis. Read Lorens story below on why she bought an Extra Help franchise.

Loren explains:

"Council's annual budgets for help for the over 65s have fallen by 1.3bn since 2010 whilst at the same time people are living longer and often living further apart from their relatives. Extra Help was created to allow elderly people to continue living independently in their own homes whilst at the same time providing their family with peace of mind that their loved ones are receiving the caring help and support they need".

"Last year my father in law, who lived in Glasgow, became ill. We frequently travelled from the North West and telephoned daily but were worried between visits that he was looking after himself properly. We were prime candidates for the Extra Help services. Dad needed help with shopping and cooking when we were not there and I needed help with cleaning and ironing to keep my house in order when we were in Scotland".

Extra Help carefully matches home helpers to individuals to ensure that a good relationship develops and our clients get the same helper every week. All Extra Help home helpers are personally interviewed, fully referenced and CRB checked to meet the clients needs to ensure peace of mind for both the client and their relatives.

Services offered by Extra Help include:

  • help with domestic tasks such as preparing meals

  • laundry and ironing

  • gardening

  • shopping either for or with the client

  • dog walking

  • providing transport for appointments or outings

  • companionship services

Loren finishes by saying:

"Whatever your age or needs, Extra-Help is designed to make your life easier when you need it. Our aim is to be an essential service for families in the local area".
