What The Extra Help Team Are Saying About Us
And it all sounds good to me ...
Posted on: 18/09/2014 By: Claire Robinson
As you know, Extra Help is a home help service, providing help and cleaning services to anyone who needs them. We started life as home help for the elderly which is still our passion. Sarah and I franchised the business after setting up the successful Milton Keynes franchise ...
Our franchisees now provide services in seventeen different areas across the country. This is what our newest franchisee had to say about us after she'd finished her training with Extra Help:
"Training has just finished and I am feeling so inspired and eager to get started. Claire and Sarah have been incredibly thorough and informative, guiding me through the best practice ways to approach things.
The support so far has been first class, with someone always on the end of the phone to take my queries, and I know going forward that this will continue. Armed with the knowledge from the past few days, I am sure Extra Help Newcastle will go from strength to strength. Thank you!"
Emily in Newcastle is already off to a flying start with her business and we know she's going to be a huge asset to Extra Help.
I now live in Plymouth and set up the Plymouth and East Cornwall branches of Extra Help in 2011. I was joined by Louise in 2013 and now Samantha is the newest member of our team. We have a great business running down here with fabulous cleaners and home helpers. This is what one of our home helpers recently said about us:
"I joined Extra Help in March 2014 and by far it has been the best organisation I have worked for. Louise, who has trained me, has been a massive support throughout and a pleasure to work with. Working with the elderly and vulnerable on a regular basis my role within Extra Help is to help assist Elderly clients with daily tasks which they are no longer able to do by themselves.
I help with meal preparation, cleaning, assistance with shopping as well as transporting clients to and from Doctors appointments and companionship for lunches out or just to help eliminate the feeling of isolation and loneliness which can be very difficult when they live alone.
For me working with Extra Help has been a very rewarding role and one I will be happy to be involved in for many years to come.''
The shortlist videos for the Devon Venus Awards Employee Of The Year have been released and you can now vote for Louise by following this link, clicking on her picture and then choosing 'vote'. We really appreciate your help!
As I said above, we feel very blessed to have such a great team of employees, franchisees, home helpers and cleaners along with a wonderful business model.
"Sarah and I are keen to grow Extra Help into other areas of the country as we are passionate about spreading our services!"
