Question: Is This Service For Me?
Answer: Boomers Errand Service serves a number of clients which include:
- Baby Boomers (50+) desiring the freedom and flexibility to spend time as they choose.
- Older Adults (65+) who are independent; yet, occasionally need an extra hand with certain household tasks
- Family caregivers working long hours need a helping hand or who want to spend more time with their loved ones.
- Out of town, elder caregivers who need someone to help coordinate their parents schedules in their absence.
- Sandwich generation who need to help balancing aging parent’s needs with their children’s needs
Question: Can’t I just get my family to help?
Answer: Of course you can; however, with increased work schedules and personal demands, an added responsibility takes a toll on your loved one. Other seniors have loved ones that live in other states. When they visit, they prefer spending time with their loved one–not doing chores and running errands.
Question: Can’t I use a homecare agency?
Answer: Of course you can; however, we provide a specialized focus on lifestyle management. Boomers Errand Service is backed by knowledge and experience in advising seniors and their families. We are there to assist you in daily living, challenging times, and major transitions. Homecare agencies have a core competency in personal care which includes bathing, grooming, and other activities of daily living. They typically work with clients after they become sick or disabled. We work with client in optimal health as well as declining health. Many of our clients use us for our expertise and access to resources that such agencies do not provide. We can save you time, money and a lot of headaches!
Question: Why is this service important?
Answer: First, seniors and family caregivers are working longer. Calling out of work constantly places a higher strain on employee-employer relationships and ultimately, career longevity. Second, with advancements in healthcare, older adults are constantly on the go! These adventurous individuals need someone with the know-how to take care of things in their absence. Third, some seniors will experience conditions that will decrease their ability to do things they are used to doing; however, they still value their independence from family members. Family relationships can become “transactional” where the caregiver feels that every time, he or she has to see mom, she has to also run her errands, do her laundry, and clean up her yard. Many seniors feel they are a bother to their family members. This may place a huge strain on relationships.
Boomers Errand Service helps our clients get back to enjoying the things that matter the most to them. Boomers Errand Service operates based on the most basic of premises: Seniors want things done, but just do not have the time, ability or support to do them. Our goal is to bring balance and rhythm to our clients’ lives through our outsourcing their to-do list.
Question: What makes your service unique?
Answer: Unlike non-medical senior care companies, we do not simply focus on healthcare or personal care. There are many other factors that will affect our elders’ well-being as well.
