                  "Maritsa, I want to thank Rachell and Theodora, and cannot recommend them highly enough. Their professionalism, concern, dedication and care for mum gave her dignity and some quality of life in her final weeks. I have told them both that I am more than happy to be a reference for them and you can certainly give my name as a reference for Handy Helpers too! Several of the residents at the complex where my mum stayed commented on how both the ladies undertook their duties and how much better it was for mum to be at home with individual attention and care rather than in the frail care unit. I think you may be having some more queries for carers from the residents of Bridgewater Manor! Thank you once again for all your kind assistance and we will contact you some time in the future to arrange another cooking class!"

Calling Handy Helpers they asked what my requirements were and then next day we had someone cleaning our office. Their standards are very high and I can definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much for helping us out"

                  Handy Helpers by name, and Handy Helpers by nature. Ronell doesn't just place someone in your home and then forget about you. She follows up, checks in, and has genuine interest in the welfare of your family. She is always happy to be at hand for advice, or your changing needs.

                  If anyone is thinking of getting an employee on a full-time or ad hoc basis, I would HIGHLY recommend Handy Helpers. They're just fantastic!!!
