SOME HAPPY CLIENTS
From caring for pets to helping their people, I work hard to support my clients and make their lives easier.
I'm Taryn Benson. I worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and met many people, especially seniors, who needed help with things like grocery and general shopping , pharmacy runs, changing light bulbs or batteries, and other small household tasks. (My clients have told me that these things help them stay at home, instead of moving to a facility.)
There was also a long weekend trip away when a coworker agreed to care for my pets. He couldn't find the key left for him, and didn't contact me about it.
Thankfully, my cats survived, but when it came time to start my own business, I knew I could be a great resource for others with problems like these. I've cared for animals all my life; growing up we always had many cats and dogs, along with chickens, ducks, and cows, (and the occasional guinea hen.) I look forward to helping with what you need.
TIP: Never leave a key hidden, give it to the pet sitter in person. It's safer for the pets, and home security too. Thieves really do know our "secret" hiding places.
