Help On the Way | Personal Assistants/Concierge
(Help On the Way)
Help On the Way is an hourly personal assistance provider. We give the benefit of your very own personal assistant, without the cost of having a full- or part-time employee. Help On the Way offers non-medical services to seniors, those in medical recovery, professional and non-professional workers, new parents, pleasure and/or business travelers and those just needing a helping hand. Our goal is to help you with tasks you are unable to do or don’t have time to do yourself.
Barb and Anita, the two partners in Help On the Way, are longtime Portland residents. We offer personalized services for you and your home when you are busy or away. We understand the demands of day-to-day life and created Help On the Way, a bonded provider of personal assistance, to help our neighbors meet those daily demands without hiring a full-time assistant.
Between us we have a broad base of experience which includes raising and caring for children and working at a wide variety of paid as well as volunteer positions. Our experience helping aging parents has given us an understanding of the many issues facing senior citizens. In recent years, each of us has spent time living aboard and traveling the world by sailboat. From this experience we have learned how to be resourceful and self-reliant. A highlight of this way of life has been gaining an understanding of people of different cultures.
