Temporary Help

It’s about Time to Recover.

There are times when you need to be a priority. Life can just knock you off your feet. Maybe a new baby tires you out, or an operation, injury or illness stops you doing things the way you want.

Recuperation takes time, and it can take longer to get better if you don’t have help.

Faced with an urgent need to take care of yourself the very last you thing you need to worry about is housework. Of course your home does need to be cleaned and maintained; clothes (and beds) will need washing and perhaps ironing. It’s just that YOU shouldn’t be doing it.

Who can do it for you? Poppies Liverpool of course!

Not only can we take over your routine cleaning we can help with your shopping, do the washing up, change towels and beds – we’ll even pick up the children’s toys – just this one time!

Call Poppies Liverpool and we will meet with you to agree a plan of action. We can do as little or as much as you want – as long as we do the things that really will make a difference to you – so that you can concentrate on getting fit.

Everybody needs help sometimes and however well-meaning friends, relatives and neighbours are not always best placed to do the things you really need when you need them.

Poppies Liverpool are the professionals – reliable, consistent and responsible.

Poppies Domestic Cleaning Services

When Sue Rorstad MBE founded Poppies in 1980, she did so with the belief that Poppies operatives should be more than just “cleaners.”

She believed that they should care about their clients, pay attention to their individual needs and preferences, and provide a professional, personal and high-quality cleaning service that not only makes a difference to their homes, but has a positive impact on their lives — especially during times when they need it the most.

These are the values that Poppies’ Temporary Help service is built on.

If life has taken you out of action and left you unable to look after the housework, our caring, committed and consistent Temporary Help service is the helping hand you can rely on.

Perhaps you’re recovering from an illness, accident or injury. Maybe you’re laid up after undergoing an operation. Or you might be a new or expectant mum who’s struggling to cope with the physical demands of pregnancy or caring for your newborn child.

Whatever hardship you’re currently going through, we understand the difference that a clean, tidy and pleasant home can make, especially if you’re temporarily laid-up or house-bound. Which is why our team of experienced, dedicated and highly-trained operatives will handle the housework so you can focus on what’s most important in life.

Like all of our packages, Poppies’ Temporary Help service is tailored to your specific needs. It can include as much or as little as you want — from general tidying and changing beds to deep cleaning and doing the laundry. The service is ideal for those who require more than a one-off cleaning session but can’t quite commit to a regular housework service (which generally involves a minimum of three months).

Our Temporary Help service can include:

  • Cleaning — At Poppies, we pride ourselves on making our clients’ homes look, smell and feel fresh. Whether it’s scrubbing the floors, cleaning the counters or dusting those hard-to-reach places, no job is too demanding for your dedicated operative.
  • General Tidying — When you’re physically unable to look after your home, things can easily pile up. This can add unwanted stress (and safety hazards) to your already difficult circumstances. Don’t worry, though, because Poppies will put things back exactly how you like them.
  • Laundry & Ironing — It’s important to stay on top of the laundry, otherwise you might leave yourself without any clean clothes to wear. From regular clothing garments to large items like bed sheets and duvet covers, we’ll make the laundry one less headache for you. We’ll also take care of the ironing to make sure you’re never without plenty of clean, fresh and neatly-folded clothes.
  • Washing Up — Doing the dishes can be a tiring job, especially if some items require a bit of elbow grease. If you’re recovering from an illness or operation, you might not have the strength. Poppies is happy to be your personal, professional dishwasher.
  • Changing Beds and Towels — Changing a bed can be one of the most physically demanding, if not impossible, tasks while you’re recovering from an illness or injury. Let us handle bed-making duties while you focus on getting the rest you need.
  • Help with the Shopping — Being laid up or house-bound while recovering from an illness or operation can make grocery runs difficult, but that doesn’t mean you have to go hungry. Simply write a shopping list and we’ll make sure your fridge and kitchen cupboards are fully stocked.

Written Specification

If Poppies’ Temporary Help service sounds like the helping hand you need around the house, we’ll need to visit your home for a consultation before you sign up. This is so we can meet you in person, view your property, and get to know which of our services can benefit you the most. We’ll then be able to give you an accurate quote and written specification that outlines what we’ll do on each visit and how much it’ll cost.

From there, you can personalise your Temporary Help package and pick a day, time and the frequency of your cleaning service.

Continuity

We believe that continuity is in everyone’s best interest, which is why we always try and send the same Poppies operative to your home, especially if you sign up with us for one month or longer. This allows your operative to become fully accustomed to your needs and preferences so they can deliver a consistent, high-quality service every session. Plus, if someone is regularly visiting your home and taking care of the housework, it helps if they’re a familiar face.

If, for reasons such as staff holidays or illness, your regular operative cannot come to your home, Poppies will connect you with another suitable operative who will be fully briefed on your package, property and preferences.

Supervision

While all of our staff are carefully recruited and highly-trained, Poppies employ Quality Control supervisors who are here to make sure you’re receiving the best possible service. Our supervisors not only check that your home is being properly cleaned and cared for, but they ensure that if your needs or preferences change over time (which, during the recovery process, they probably will), your service is adjusted accordingly.

Whatever tough spot you find yourself in, contact Poppies Liverpool today to get the Temporary Help you need.

" I contacted Poppies for help after having an operation in January this year. I was thrilled with the way Robert helped me to choose the right amount of time needed etc. I have Sharon that comes to my house and she is unbelievable at cleaning! I can't do without her now. They are trustworthy and very professional. I would recommend Poppies 100%. Thank you! "
