Below is a testimonial from Brandon, a resident at The Livmore High Park in Toronto, who recently booked HomeHelpr’s massage services:

“We recently used HomeHelpr to book a prenatal massage for my wife. The online process was simple, and the support was exceptional in making sure we were prepared. The massage therapist was fantastic. The session was very relaxing and relieving, and she was bright and positive throughout. We will definitely repeat in the future”

HomeHelpr Onsite Oil Change

  • Regularly scheduled motor oil changes increase the life of your engine, increase your fuel economy, and keep the moving parts of your engine running smoothly. Motor oil also reduces your engine temperature. The best part is that our certified technicians can keep your car running smoothly and they will come to you!
  • They take care of properly disposing of the spent oil and can complete the oil change just about anywhere your car might be – on your property, in a parking lot or even on the street!

HomeHelpr Onsite Car Detailing

  • HomeHelpr provides a professional car detailing experience that will make your car feel like it is brand new. With multiple cleaning options to choose from (General Cleans or Deep Cleans depending on your car size / type), your car will be transformed to its original glory quickly.

*Please check with the Resident Service Centre in your community for onsite parking for HomeHelpr car services.

Does GWL Realty Advisors Residential benefit financially from this partnership?
No. The only benefit is that we know that we have brought a service provider into our communities that will bring vetted, local, and high-quality professionals to your doorstep to take care of those chores or tasks so you or someone you care about can focus on the important things in life.

A Holiday Message to Our Residents

Whether you like it or not, winter is coming. As if dealing with the pandemic wasn’t bad enough, now we’re about to face the bleak realities of subdued holiday celebrations compounded by the cold, wet and dark days of winter.

The next few months will be hard for many of us. Our brains can only maintain a heightened level of anxiety for a certain time and for the past nine months, they have been on high alert making us feel on edge.

Much of the country is setting daily records for new coronavirus cases. Listening to the news and hearing the frightening numbers of Covid-19 cases, makes us feel powerless. One thing you can do to give yourself a little sense of control is to make a commitment. Just do the things you have control over to keep yourself and your friends and family as safe as possible. Wear a mask, wash your hands frequently and social distance. It’s so simple and it has become second nature now, at least for most of us.

Try to keep some positive mindfulness in your life. What we’re dealing with is historic. Instead of letting it all go by, look around, be proud of how you’ve adapted and of everything you’ve done right. Think about what you’ll say when you look back. Mark this year as one you will always talk about.

And, please don’t give up on the holidays. You can still decorate. You can still cook or bake, if you enjoy that. Embrace the holidays at home, however you observe or celebrate them. This is especially important if you have kids. Keep your social connections. Have virtual toasts and parties. We know its not the same, but at least its something. Any socializing, even virtual, boosts our mood. We can still talk and laugh with friends, as always even through a screen.

Adopt healthy habits and stay active! This means eating healthy, getting enough sleep, exercising, and setting time aside to have fun. Weather permitting, get outside and enjoy the day. Physical activity is good for our physical and mental health. Go skating, walk your dog or try something new like snowshoeing.

Probably, the best thing you can do to make yourself, and someone else, feel better, is to do something nice for someone. Pay it forward any way you can. Maybe it’s a small gesture or donation. Maybe it’s finding a way to volunteer. It can be as simple as telling someone how much they mean to you.

Please remember, it’s OK to have a bad day. Everyone else will be having them, too. But, you can work on it. We are all going through this together. Just hang in there. We’re getting closer. This won’t last forever.

Don’t be hard on yourself. Just accept there will be times when things go wrong or you’ll feel bad. Nobody prepared us for this and we are all trying to figure this out as we go along. So, be kind to yourself and others, focus on things and people that are around you that you care about and look for reasons to smile and to laugh.

Warmest wishes of the season from our family to yours.
