“I’ve begun to think of you all as friends more than a “service.” At this stage of my illness, I need nourishment more than errands. Julie, especially, has been so good about calling on a regular basis to see how I’m doing and cooking up some yummy meals to keep me going – and always with a smile on her face.” – Jinx, Fairfax, VA


“I have used A Second Me in connection with my relocation and can only say that I am more than happy with their service. Julie Warter was my coordinator. She picked up items and disposed of some items for me, suggested supply sources, and ways to organize things in my new home. Julie simplified my work and worked hard herself in the process. Thanks you for a good job A Second Me.” -Ralph, Springfield, VA


“I have been using A Second Me for three years. When I think of A Second Me, I think of trust. I trust them 100% with my personal information – they’re reliable. If they say they are going to be at my house at noon, they’re there right at noon. They listen and understand your family’s needs, and they give super suggestions to help. As a former third grade teacher, I give this company an A+.” -Terri, Lorton, VA


“In 2010 both of my parents were diagnosed with cancer. In 2012 my father began declining and my mother was back in treatment. They have needed assistance with getting to Doctor’s appointments, company when one or the other was out of the house, and nutritious meals when cooking became difficult.

I needed for the help to be someone I trusted, and not some stranger coming into their home. Karen was the perfect fit. She understands what it’s like to constantly worry about your parents’ wellbeing, and honestly cares about her clients – often checking in on them, when she hasn’t heard from them in a while, simply to see if they are okay.

I would and have recommended Karen’s service to anyone who is seeking assistance of this nature for their loved ones. Karen (and Julie) – thank you for making things just a little easier.” – Katie, Centreville, VA


“I’ve used A Second Me for my weekly grocery shopping for a while – their shopping expertise has trimmed $2,000 from my yearly grocery bill! They are cost effective, professional, and caring. I’ve been so impressed by their range of skills – they’re researching caregivers in other cities for me as preparation for a potential move. If I go, I’ll hate to leave them behind!” – Cindy, Vienna, VA


“A Second Me was just that when I really needed help the most – a second me to help with all the things I couldn’t do after a major medical procedure. They helped me get my new place set up, supervised the contractors, were there for deliveries and to let people in, provided transportation, located and vetted movers, got price quotes and researched options for me to decide upon. I recommend them without hesitation to anyone who needs assistance, time, or just an extra set of hands. They are there when you can’t be!” – Corwin, Fairfax, VA


“I live in Virginia Beach so when I needed to pick up a item from a Fairfax Store I was in a quandary as to what to do. I called Karen at A Second Me Errand Service and she not only picked up my item but mailed it to me the same day all the time keeping me updated via phone. I am so impressed with her service and attention to detail that I gave her a 5 Star Rating and I would also give her a A+ if that were possible. I certainly would use her again if needed.” Yolonda, Virginia Beach, VA


“A Second Me is not only an errand service. They make you feel like family. The owner Karen and her staff have been such a help for me since February of 2012. Most especially, they were there for me during the very difficult time of transitioning mom 92 year old mother into a nursing home. I called on them to help me with everything from doing the grocery shopping, to taking care of my dogs, to getting my home cleaned-up up for my roommate search. After many years of accumulating clutter in my home, they helped me prepare for and staffed my yard sale. They take the time to get to know their clients and how to best serve them. I highly recommend A Second Me Errand Service.” Betty, Springfield, VA

“Wonderful company! They helped us with meal prep, cooking, laundry, typing, some clerical follow up (letters, phone and email contacts) and daily check-ins for my elderly father. Their help was also amazing when going through an extensive kitchen remodel/repair. They helped us with day to day tasks that needed to get done but were tough to finish with a working household, a small child and elderly father. They have my highest recommendation – they are trustworthy and efficient!” Margie, Brentwood, VA
