I think most of us say this with good intentions. Yet, as we step back into our everyday lives, we get busy.
If we truly want to help someone, a better approach would be to say:
“Here is how I can help ____________.”
Instead of letting the person you seek to serve guess, tell them what it is you can do. Be specific.
“Here is how I can help, I can move your washer and dryer on Tuesday night.”
This puts the responsibility back on ourselves to care for one another.
