With the impending arrival of Hurricane Ian in Florida, we would like you to know that it is our goal to shelter in place unless ordered to evacuate by authorities. Families will be notified by each community regarding specific plans should evacuation occur. Our communities are equipped with large generators and sufficient fuel supplies in the event of loss of power. Our company philosophy is that residents will be better served, safer, and less anxious if they are able to stay at our communities in familiar surroundings with staff available to see them through the storm. Residents may also want to stay with family members and if this is the case, please arrange with the on-site team at their community. Please feel free to speak with the Executive Director or any of the Senior leadership at the community if you have questions. Best regards and stay safe. We will update after the storm has passed.
Grocery delivery services have seen a recent spike in business due to social distancing and self-quarantining. For seniors and older adults alike, the ability to rely on this service makes life easier despite these uncertain times; there’s no need to visit grocery stores and possibly encounter the virus.
Read more on the top three grocery delivery services and the tips and tricks that may be less known. Take note of each company's minimum order requirements and delivery fees. Also check to see if there's a membership option that could save you money on fees or get you additional perks.
In order to take advantage of AmazonFresh, you need to be an existing Amazon Prime member. For an extra $15 a month (after a 30-day free trial), you'll get access to tons of fresh produce, packaged foods, and more from the Amazon interface you know and love.
Keep in mind that Amazon Prime customers in select cities might prefer Prime Now, a delivery service with no additional monthly fee.
You may have heard of Walmart Grocery before, but the company just launched a brand-new membership option called Delivery Unlimited. When purchased, the delivery fee will be waived for a full year. Note: If you live near a Walmart store, there's also the option to pick up your order in person.
Instacart is a grocery delivery service where personal shoppers select your items from the store and then deliver them to your door. Depending on your location, you can get same-day delivery (sometimes in as little as an hour!) from a variety of stores in your area like Fairway, Aldi, Foodtown, and more. You can shop straight from the app (available on Android and iOS ) or directly from the website if you prefer your computer's bigger screen.
