Hello From Extra Help Bedfordshire Central
We're off to a flying start ...
Posted on: 27/02/2014 By: Peter Lodge
Hello everyone, my name is Peter Lodge and I am the new franchisee for Bedfordshire Central. Before joining the company I spent over seven years in the medical/care sector working within both the elderly and paediatric sectors ...
With support from Extra Help Bedfordshire Central, our elderly clients can stay in their own homes for longer and we ease the stresses and strains of everyday life for others!
I decided that I wanted a bigger challenge, but still in an area where I could make a difference to people's quality of life. I attended the initial meeting with Sarah, who came over very professionally and knew the company inside out.
After this meeting, I went away and discussed with my family their thoughts as well as my own. The main thing that drew me to this company was its values and mission statement as they are things that I do truly believe in.
"Our aim is to provide professional, high-quality, friendly, efficient and affordable domestic and home-help services, enabling the elderly to stay in their own homes for longer and easing the stresses and strains of everyday life for others."
I was then in contact with Sarah to get the ball rolling. And boy, did it roll! Before I knew it I was at Harben House at Newport Pagnell and getting myself ready to start training with two other new franchisees.
During training I was so nervous thinking what have I let myself in for? Thankfully, Sarah, Claire and Louise were there to help put my mind at ease. The guest speakers who were there, were very helpful and knowledgeable of their own specialities.
Extra Help Bedfordshire Central is now live and has started well! It's time for me to look forward and push myself to ensure the business grows and that I succeed in ensuring my client's needs are met.
If you or anyone you know needs Extra Help in the Stevenage/Sandy area, please give me a call on 0845 219 8978 click here to send over an email and I'll get right back to you.
Until next time ...
