I spoke with the owner a month ahead of time about using their hotel sitter services to watch my baby girl while we attended a wedding. She seemed very pleasant and accommodating, and told me that she had our request booked, and would call the week of to confirm and match us with a sitter. It is now the week of and I haven't heard a thing, despite leaving several voicemails. We're now scrambling to find alternative care with only two day's notice.
I have known Suzette Trimmer & her company Your Other Hands for a number of years. She is a tremendous asset to the Greater Philadelphia area, a true professional who is driven by passion and dedication. She continues to operate her business and service as a traditionalist and caters to the individual needs of each and every client. I have the utmost confidence in Suzette and her organizations ability to preciously care for and develop the greatest treasure on earth “Our Children “. When many other child care companies have taken a systematic cookie cutter approach to their service, Suzette and Your Other Hands remained steadfast to their principles and philosophies of looking at each client and child for their individual needs. If you , your family and loved ones want to be treated and understood for the unique individuals that you are, then Your Other Hands is the child care service for you. I highly recommend Suzette Trimmer and Your Other Hands for your child care needs. George A.

Your Other Hands is the epitome of everything I desire when it comes to childcare. Everyone that I have been in contact with from this business is very professional, upstanding, courteous, yet down to earth, and willing to go the extra mile to meet the needs of every family that they service. I am proud to be affiliated with Your Other Hands Nanny Service!
I recently had an excellent experience with this service. I was faced with needing a sitter while staying in a large Philly hotel this summer, my girls were well cared for, were able to get to the pool, went out to grab a bite to eat and were showered and ready for bed when I returned. Jordana was professional AND fun, what's better than that? Use them, you won't regret it.
Those who stumble upon this merger review please know it is the whole truth. I have absolutely no vested interest in this organization. I do however have a very formulated opinion. And that opinion is, WHOA! Terrific, astute, professional yet personable, and may I add extremely Knowledgeable about what they do. They Care they really do care about you as a mother and they care after their staff as if they were all family member's. They require more of their nannies then most day care centers, in terms of they leave not a grand of sand left unturned. Their staff of only American nannies does my heart good as well for they are an AMERICAN MADE company that generates and employes those from our region. I know of no other business or service like this that handles the needs of my wants. I initially used them from emergency back-up only. But when my own nanny had to leave to care for her mother I was left high and dry at moments notice. They sent me an emergency same day nanny that morning. Within three days they arranged four interviews, all great candidates, however; I wound up keeping the nanny they sent for the day for my permanent choice happy mom happy family ever since.Thought good idea to share with others.
I Am in Philly on business many times throughout the year and when my wife and two boys come with me I always call Suzette at Your Other Hands to watch my boys at least once during the visit so my wife and myself can go out for a night on the town. My boys can get to be a handful at times, I have never had anything but a wonderful experience with Your Other Hands. I was there just last week and it was so nice to go out and not even have to think there would be a problem while having dinner and then sightseeing. Thank you for making our stay in Philly great every time....I guess if I had to sum it up with only a few words, I would say...Your Other Hands is a "Given" if you do not want to worry about anything.
My friends and I recently stayed at a highly rated Hotel in City Center Philadelphia. We were advised by our Hotel that Your Other Hands was a reputable company in business for almost 25 years. The sitter that was sent to watch our two small children seemed strange but I thought maybe I was over reacting. I spent an hour sitting and making small talk with this woman as my daughter was asleep for the night and my friend was putting her son to bed before we left to have dinner at a nearby restaurant. The other Mother and I asked questions and we received what seemed to be "reasonable" explanations for the odd behavior. She also claimed 19 years with her company and said she had a child of her own. We only left for 2 hours while both kids were sleeping. All we needed was a responsible adult in case of an emergency or if a child woke up. We returned to the Hotel to find the sitter had been "removed" from her post by concerned Hotel management while we were at Dinner. It seems after we left her "odd" behavior caused a Hotel employee alarm when they delivered ice to the room. It was VERY startling to return to hotel staff waiting in our hotel suite. Although we are happy with the staff's swift action, we are sorry it had to happen. It's hard to leave your babies with a stranger and this was a our first time... Scary
