Home help

When everyday tasks start piling up around you, getting things sorted with home help from Arvida Good Friends is a smart strategy.

As the saying goes, housework is something that nobody notices until you don’t do it.

With Arvida Good Friends Help at Home membership, you can find a Helper who’ll do things the way you like them done around your home. You get to decide when they come around and what they do, depending on your plans for the week.

Sometimes you might need assistance with home basics, like vacuuming the floors and changing bed linen. At other times you might want help with supermarket shopping and meal preparation.

The details of how your home Helper contributes to the smooth running of your household are worked out between you and the helper. We assist you to create your home help plan for the services you need and give you advice as to how long things take. It’s always open for discussion, because Arvida Good Friends home help is about giving you flexibility and choice.

Here are some of the ways a Good Friends home helper can make life easier:

  • Errands and grocery shopping
  • Assistance with personal administration tasks and appointments
  • Assistance with technology in your home
