FOOD & MEAL DELIVERY OPTIONS FOR SENIORS
One benefit of modern life is that it’s now easy to order food and meals from the comfort of your home. You can avoid long lines--especially during global pandemics like coronavirus--or if the weather is inclement, or you just don’t feel like going out. These online services or “apps” on your phone are great for seniors, their caregivers and families too. If you want to utilize these services for your older family members, keep a few things in mind:
You will likely have to help your seniors get the hang of these apps--downloading them on their phone or computer and showing them how to use them.
Some of these apps, while useful, can be confusing. You may need to do the food or meal ordering for them.
For seniors with poor eyesight, check the phone to see if you can increase the text size. Usually in the “settings” section on your phone, you can do this.
Look carefully and note the delivery times for an order, particularly to ensure someone is at home to accept the order such as a caregiver or family members.
Ensure the address for the delivery is correct so items are received in a timely manner.
Put a note in the app’s comment or notes section when you order noting that this order is going to an elderly person so the delivery person can be mindful of the customer’s situation.
Do match the list of items requested to the order actually received.
