Grocery shopping and other errands can be difficult tasks for elders. Picking up prescriptions, organizing incoming mail, going to the post office – these types of routine personal errands can be overwhelming and exhausting, mentally and physically.
Even if your loved one can still drive and has a handicapped parking pass, the stress of finding parking, physically moving through the parking lot (especially if it’s wet, snowy, or icy) and perhaps having to wait in line can be very taxing.
An Assisting Hands caregiver serving Columbus can go grocery shopping and run errands and will be happy to bring your loved one along if desired. Sometimes it’s just the reassurance of having someone else there that will give them peace of mind, knowing they don’t have to figure everything out alone. Not only do the errands get done, your loved one can get a mental boost from being out and about, interacting with others, and adding life to their years.
We’re also accustomed to taking people to their doctor’s appointments and assisting them in the waiting and examining rooms if needed. Just let us know what your loved one needs and we’ll be happy to tailor our services to them.
