If you are 55 years of age or more and are frail, impaired, ill or convalescing, you can ask for REAL HELP. You will be put in touch with caregivers and other workers who have been carefully interviewed and screened to do housework, laundry, cooking, personal care, pet care, companionship, gardening, sewing and mending, correspondence, driving, shopping, errands and minor home repairs. Real Help is a referral service and does not charge the client or the worker for services. The client pays the worker directly. For more information, call Jamie O’Toole at 805-965-1531 for REAL HELP. Real Help is a Senior Programs of Santa Barbara program.
