How Can Seniors Helping Seniors Support You During COVID-19?

At Seniors Helping Seniors, we understand that your need for caregiving help didn’t stop with the COVID-19 outbreak. In fact, many external supports vanished when Adult Day Programs closed, and family members could no longer visit to provide much needed support and respite for primary caregivers. Seniors Helping Seniors is here to fill that void.

As we enter our “new normal,” we have revised our caregiving and companion offerings to assist you and your loved ones, in particular surrounding respite care. Our services can supplement primary family caregivers, allowing for loved ones to remain at home longer and mitigate the need to move into a senior care facility at this time.

All caregivers/companions are provided with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and recommended safety precautions are being followed to minimize the risk of potential exposure to the virus.

 

Ways We Can Help At Home:

  • Grocery shopping and delivery

  • Pharmacy pick-up and delivery

  • Social distancing walks

  • Board games, cooking, and reminiscing

  • Participating in virtual exercise programs and virtual Memory Cafes

  • Transportation for essential medical appointments

  • Other assorted errands, i.e. hardware store, bank, dry cleaners, post office

  • Telephone wellness checks and medication reminders

 

Ways We Can Help At Senior Living Communities:

  • Grocery shopping and delivery

  • Special occasion delivery (flowers, cakes, etc.)
