Help a Senior Run an ErrandMany seniors have trouble taking care of tasks outside their home. This week, put a smile on someone’s face by offering to help run an errand.
We may not think much about heading to the grocer after work or depositing a check at the bank down the street. But for many seniors with limited mobility or lack of transportation, it can undoubtedly be a challenge taking care of everyday errands they once, too, took for granted.
Before leaving the house this week, consider asking a senior neighbor or friend if you can run a common errand for them. You’d be surprised the difference you can make through a simple act of kindness.
Here are few errand suggestions that were completed by other Ready to Care® volunteers:
“Went shopping for an elderly neighbor and delivered lunch and had a good conversation with another.” – Marcia
“I help a blind neighbor read her mail and order items she needs online. Also drive her where she needs to go.” – Elizabeth
