What can Everyday Hands do for you? If you know you need help, but aren’t sure how, consider these real-life examples of how our personalized service has fulfilled a family’s unique needs.

A Little “Everyday” Help

$65/hour, 2-hour minimum, billed at 15 minute increments after the second hour. Available as ‘a la carte’ services, or bundle together.

Alice, age 95, moved in with her son and daughter-in-law. Alice is independent with personal needs, but benefits from being checked on, having light household tasks completed for her, and simple companionship. Plus, Alice’s family found that they also benefit from the peace of mind and respite time. These services are scheduled as-needed.

Everyday Hands’ services for Alice include:

  • Bringing in the morning newspaper and mail.
  • Verbal reminder to take medications.
  • Warming meals/meal set up and clean up. (Breakfast and lunch, 1 hour each)
  • Fixing her daily cocktail and playing cards. (2 Hours)
  • Conversation and companionship!

Marilyn, age 79, lives with her daughter. She is independent with personal needs, but has become less able to meaningfully contribute to maintaining the home. In fact, when Marilyn had her knee replaced, she confidently told her health care team that Everyday Hands was part of her post-discharge home support plan!
