Sewell 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.

Some centers can provide discounted programs for low income seniors. Sunlight Care does not recommend any specific Senior Daycare.

Other Sewell, Washington Township & Turnersville 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. Some local stores that support this service are listed:

  • ShopRite, 382 Egg Harbor Road, Sewell, NJ, 08080. Hours of Operation: Mon-Sun 7am-11pm. Phone Number: (856) 582-6330.

Also available in the Sewell, Turnersville and Washington Township areas 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. Also, the Washington Township Senior Center will provide lunch to visiting seniors for a small fee while seniors are at the center. 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.

Doctor Visits:  This Sewell based Senior Center also provides rides to doctor visits but passengers must be ambulatory and able to maneuver on their own or have a helper. Services are also available to Washington Township & Turnersville residents. The center can accommodate wheel chairs, walkers and canes. If the senior does not meet the ambulatory requirements then outside support from family, friends or Sunlight Care should be provided. When using group transportation services, be sure to leave ample time for transport. Plan on arriving at least an hour before the appointment since the number of people using the services on any single day can vary greatly. For more timely and convenient transportation Sunlight Care can provide a Home health Aide to provide transportation and ambulatory support.

There are also many visiting doctors and nurse practitioners who can provide medical service at your home instead of you traveling to the doctor. The cost difference should minimal or zero.
