Woodbury NJ Grocery Shopping Support
Since Continuous 7 Day per week live in assistance companions generally do not drive and should never leave the client, shopping for food and other essentials are usually performed by a family member, obtained through a delivery service or provided through a Sunlight Care discounted service specially designed for our live in assistance families.
For a very small fee a different Sunlight Care companion go shopping for groceries and deliver them to the client’s home. 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.
