Blackwood NJ provides many activities for seniors to participate in, but many seniors don’t because they are unable to drive or are worried about the difficulties of making a trip. Utilizing Sunlight Care home health aides to participate in local activities is a way to improve your loved one’s quality of life and stay healthy through exercise. Some of their activities include a computer club, bingo, bridge, lite aerobics, senior Tai Chi and an AARP driver’s workshop.
Elder Care in the Comfort of Your Blackwood NJ Home
Socialization Support : Blackwood residents who are 55 and older or disabled can utilize the Gloucester Township Senior Center located at 1575 Hider Ln, Clementon, NJ 08021.

Senior Daycares can provide social and recreational activities, shopping day trips, craft programs, educational programs and lectures, healthcare support and nutrition monitoring. Some centers can provide discounted programs for low income seniors. Sunlight Care does not recommend any specific Senior Daycare.
Other local organizations like churches, synagogues, temples and mosque groups are a good opportunity for additional socialization. During other times Sunlight Care can provide a companion or a home health aide to keep your loved-one company and perform activities that will keep them mentally active.
Grocery Delivery: Some grocery stores will pack and deliver groceries for small fees. There is usually a charge for picking and a separate charge for delivery. The total of all fees range from $10 to $20 dollars. However, generally the order must be entered on-line at the store’s web portal. Many seniors have a difficult time creating accounts and navigating the web site to place orders. It also may take a half day to a full day to get the groceries delivered. The senior may also have difficulties putting the groceries away once delivered and left on the counter. If family or friends cannot support the ordering process Sunlight Care can provide an aide to help with the process. At the time of publication we could not find any Blackwood stores that supported this service.
Also available in the Blackwood area are delivery services not affiliated with local grocery stores: freshdirect and freshology.
Meal Preparation: Seniors at least 60 years old who are homebound and meet certain income criteria can receive Meals on Wheels from a program hosted by Gloucester County Division of Senior Services located at 115 Budd Blvd, West Deptford, NJ 08096 856-686-8329.Sunlight Care aides can prepare meals for multiple days so the senior can just microwave meals on the days that the aide is not there.
Transportation Support: If your senior needs ambulatory supported transportation that family or friends are not able to supply and taxis are not practical then call Sunlight Care. We can provide timely and convenient transportation using a Certified Home Health Aide who is trained to provide physical support during transfers. Plan on arriving at least a half hour before the appointment to account for loading and unloading delays as well as traffic delays.
