Make your laundry go ‘poof’ done by hiring Sarah Wiebe of The Laundry Fairy, serving seniors, students and working families in Nanaimo, Nanoose Bay and Parksville.

Nanaimo laundry service does more than soak your socks

Service offers one way to help seniors stay in their homes

When Sarah Wiebe started The Laundry Fairy four months ago she thought she was just going to be folding sheets. Turns out, the service she provides brings serious benefits to her community.

“I’ve been in the ‘helping’ field my whole professional life, as a therapist and special-needs aide,” Wiebe says. She gave that up when she launched The Laundry Fairy so she could work from home and spend more quality time with her four young children.

But she hasn’t stopped helping.

Keeping seniors in the home

The Laundry Fairy helps small businesses and working families with busy schedules, but Wiebe discovered her service also has significant side-benefits for seniors.

“We pick up from people’s homes at a time that works for them, do their laundry, and drop it off the next day, so that’s two days a week that our elderly clients are sure to get a home visit.”

Wiebe serves a growing list of seniors who are either struggling to find a care aide, or find there’s not enough time for care aides to complete all their chores in a brief visit.

“Word is getting around that The Laundry Fairy can help out in a simple, affordable way,” Wiebe says, “We can’t do everything, but we’re certainly helping to keep seniors in their homes.”

Make your laundry go ‘poof’ done!

Dirty laundry piles up all over the place, and The Laundry Fairy is happy to make it disappear. Need the towels tossed at your vacation rental? Want your coffee shop’s rags rinsed? Know a student who could use some suds on their sweatpants?
