Blackwood 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. At the time of publication we could not find any Blackwood stores that supported this service. Sunlight Care also has companions that can perform other shopping trips and provide transport for doctor visits.

Also available in the Blackwood area are delivery services not affiliated with local grocery stores: freshdirect and freshology.

Stay at Home

Many times seniors who are getting along marginally in their own home show a substantial decline in ability once they are moved into an institution. They know where everything is in their own home and how everything works. Cognitive degeneration is often missed or under estimate by family members because seniors stay functional beyond their ability when in familiar surroundings. Once removed from those surroundings the senior may experience increased frustration and reduced self-esteem as they are confronted with increased confusion.
