Services We DON’T Offer in a Nutshell

by Karen on July 21, 2017

You may have seen our latest “Services in a Nutshell” blog about some of the most common services that we perform for our clients on a daily basis. While a lot of our services are on a case by case basis, we wanted to give you a list of some common requests that we don’t usually help clients with. This list might clear up any confusion about our services, but if you’re ever confused, feel free to contact us. Our goal is to help you out, whether if that’s through A Second Me, or recommending another local service to you to point you in the right direction.


Home Health

Health Care - Services We DON'T Offer In A NutshellWhile we do offer companionship services for you and your loved ones such as spending time with them at home, taking them to the movies, or going on lunch outings, we cannot preform home health related tasks. Home health is a range of health care services that are offered to those with illness or injury. A Second Me is not certified to help with these tasks, nor do we know enough to be able to properly care for your ill or injured loved ones. If you need home health care, it’s best to contact your doctor to find a service that specifically helps in these situations. We can also refer you home health agencies that we’ve had positive experiences with. Your health is important to us, so we want to make sure that you contact the right people.


Pet Care

Pet Care - Services We DON'T Offer In A NutshellIn general, we don’t normally offer pet care services. There are specific businesses for pet care that specialize in all things furry like this day care service for pets in Fairfax, VA. Although we can’t pet sit for you, we can drive your pet to a vet appointment if you are unable to make it in time, and offer the exceptional walk in a pinch. This is about the extent of our pet related services though, so if you need anything else, you’re better off asking a specialized service or looking at this top list of pet care services in Northern Virginia.


Finance Help

Finance Help - Services We DON'T Offer In A NutshellA Second Me can help with some financial tasks, such as writing checks for those who have troubled vision, or dropping off bills at the post office and going through your daily mail. Unfortunately, A Second Me does not offer accounting and bookkeeping services, so you’re better off hiring someone with specialty in that area! Finances can be very complicated, and you want someone who is certified and can give you the best bang for your buck. Once you’ve gotten some help with your accounting and bookkeeping, give us a call and we can file your paperwork for you.


Child Care

Child Care - Services We DON'T Offer In A NutshellWe’re happy to run errands for you to pick up any necessary items that your child may need, help with meal prepping for you family, set up camps, and set up birthday parties for your children, but we don’t normally offer child care services such as babysitting and driving children to appointments and extracurriculars. Although we don’t normally babysit or carpool your children, we love spending time with them while we help you organize and meal prep. Your family life is important and we’re here to help you copy yourself to get more done at home so you can spend more time with your kids!


The services that we offer fall into a lot of grey areas, and it can be difficult to figure out whether we can assist you or not. If you’re still unsure where your request falls, feel free to contact us so we can figure it out together. We are flexible with our clients and want to help you out to the best of our ability. Like we mentioned, if A Second Me can’t specifically help you with your request, we can help refer you to a specific service or agency that may be able to help you with your request instead. No matter what, we’re here to help!
