“Terrie Babiuk (All About You Helping Hands) was a great help to us when my husband’s Dad became ill and could no longer live on his own. He went to live at Chartwell in Vernon, and, since we are in Langley, Terrie was a lifesaver to us.
She took Len to see his friends for coffee, did shopping and banking for him, as well as being his friend. She took the time just to drop in and say hello to him when she was at Chartwell. We moved him to Langley now, because of his health, but are very grateful that a service like Terrie’s was available to us.
It took a lot of the worry away, with us not being there for him on a daily basis.
I would recommend Terri highly, as a caring, trustworthy business person.”

“My mother, Faith, is 93. She is in poor health and housed in assisted living in Vernon, BC. She gets assistance with basic life functions from the folks at Interior Health, or from her residential assistance staff. While this is a help, my mother is lonely, confused at times and frightened of the future. Mainly she fears more of not being able to die, which has distressed her for more than a year.
My brothers live in Saskatchewan. My sister Helen lives in Armstrong. She assists and visits whenever possible. I am in Penticton,(2 hours drive away) but remain a care-giver for my wife who has dementia. I drive to see my mother each Monday, but I cannot spare much more time. For this reason I asked Terrie to drop in on my mother for companionship and to provide such assistance as may be required from time to time.
If you asked my mother, she would tell you that she could not live without Terrie. When she feels low, has had a letdown or a tiff with someone, she dials Terrie. Sometimes a chat will solve the problem. Other times Terrie will pick up a needed item and stop for a brief visit, usually an hour. Still other times they will tell stories, of work on a project like sorting jewellery. Always Mother feels better and can resume her lonely life refreshed.
For my part, Terrie provides peace of mind. She does for me what I cannot do, or what would take me several hours to do. Her work with my mother also provides a sense of security for my brothers and Helen. All of us appreciate Terrie’s regular communication, her compassion for seniors, her sense of responsibility to family members and her warm heart.
My life and, more importantly, my mother’s life have been improved and enhanced by Terrie’s fine and patient efforts. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who needs help with a loved one.”
“I would highly recommend All About You Helping Hands for fantastic service and attentiveness.
We recently hired Terrie from the above company to take care of all our handicapped son’s needs while we were away on vacation for a month.
Mardie (son) is in a care home and has errands that have to be done for him on a daily basis such as washing and returning his clothing, shopping for personal things he needs and transporting him to and from medical appointments. He also was taken to social things such as hockey games and dinner out to a restaurant. At Christmas Terrie nicely decorated his room and helped him with gift wrapping.
It certainly puts our minds at ease to know this wonderful service is available any time with just a phone call and that our son is so well taken care of in such a personal way.
Terrie is also very involved in the Vernon community doing volunteer work at Hospice House and many other events going on in the area. She also belongs to Kalamalka Karing Klowns and often dresses up in her outfit to visit shut-in seniors and needless to say, this puts huge SMILES on their faces.
Again I would have no hesitation recommending All About You Helping Hands for special services you may need.”

“Terrie has been a godsend as I travel this road of dementia with my mother.
I find her to be approachable, insightful and well experienced. Terrie’s flexibility is appreciated as Mom’s, or my needs as her caregiver change.
I would recommend Terrie to another family without hesitation.As she dependable and regularly goes above and beyond my expectations in her care of Mom.”
