Hi Samantha,  Just wanted you to know, Renny and I were very pleased with all the cleaning Dolly did for us on Friday. She is such a pleasant person and easy to talk to. Friday 10 -12 is a perfect time frame. Thank you, Samantha, for following through on your vision to help seniors. For me personally, it is an answer to prayer. Sincerely, Marty

On a search for a companion last year, I found thru Derry’s Senior Center the names of organizations in the area dedicated to helping the elderly.  I was very pleased to engage with Bee Helpful and since November 2022 have established a relationship with my personal companion, Sheila.  Besides helping me at home we’ve become friends and I am very happy with the help I get from her.  She is very helpful, helps and accompanies me on daily activities.  -Angelica

Hi Samantha- I wanted to let you know my mother had the best day today. Her spirits were so good when we got home from work. She was so excited to have dinner ready and the table set for us. She was so talkative at dinner told us all about her day. She really felt good to contribute. Laurie is wonderful, my Mom really enjoys her company. Thank you and Laurie for all you do for seniors helping them be independent and taking a load off the caregiver (me).  Tuesday is the new laundry day 👏👏 Thank you so much for taking us on as a client we really appreciate the help.
