"I have used the services of Extra Help Care since I had an accident which left me in a wheelchair. I really couldn’t stay home alone without the extra help they provide. They are crucial to me keeping my independence."
Mrs Mason - Mapperley
"We called in Extra Help Care after Dad was diagnosed with dementia. We really didn’t want to put him into a home, but needed some extra help as my brother and I both have families and other commitments. We highly recommend Extra Help Care to anyone."
Mr Mycroft - Wollaton
"At 89 years old Mum needed some extra help. My sister and I both work full time so decided to call in Extra Help Care. Not only have they been great as far as practical help for Mum, but they have also befriended her which has been great for her. Having someone look in on her everyday was just what we needed to supplement our visits. Thank You Extra Help Care."
