Enjoy your family time.

While many errand services focus on the individual, A Second Me focuses on the family and its lifestyle management. Whether you are a 1-person household looking to outsource your chores, or want to simplify life as a working mom in charge of a 5-person household, by addressing the needs of the family, we really make an impact on freeing up your time so you can do what’s important to you.

From the Sandwich Generation to Staying in our Homes as Long as Possible….

Today’s families are facing real challenges – we’re doing all we can to manage our families with all their complications.  A Second Me is expert at all things “to do” for the Northern Virginia families – from finding services for children with special needs to arranging for senior lifestyle management. We take the pressure off.  We have your back.

Hiring A Second Me is like copying yourself and being at two places at once. One doing your errands and completing the endless to do list while the other “you” enjoys some hard earned leisure time.

See below for a list of things we do for our clients – it’s just a sampling, but inspirational nonetheless! Please contact us to talk about your specific needs – we tailor our services to you.
