Help With Shopping

These days it’s easier than ever to shop online and have groceries delivered to our doors. However, for many older and less able people, the technology and skills needed to access this resource are out of reach. Some must rely on family and friends to do shopping, while others struggle to make the journey to the shops.

Flexible Shopping Services

Our home-helper will get to know you or your loved one, make a note of preferences, food intolerances, allergies and any other relevant detail before agreeing on a shopping plan.

Shopping For Those Who Are Less Able

For many people, being able to go shopping is a big part of their daily or weekly routine and an important social outlet. When lessened mobility restricts a person’s activity this can have a real impact on confidence and well-being.

We always tailor our help with shopping service to get the best outcome. We can accompany you or your loved one to town or your preferred shops, giving that important sense of safety and security while out and about. We can also go food shopping on someone’s behalf, drafting a list beforehand to ensure that you or your loved one has all the essentials.

Our home help services are flexible - why not combine help with shopping with meal preparation services?

Lighthouse’s help with shopping service isn’t limited to food shopping - our home helper can assist whenever you or your loved one needs something, whether this is picking up an order from a local retailer, picking up medications from the pharmacy, or retrieving parcels from local delivery depots. Whatever you or your loved one’s need, our team will do all they can to meet your individual requirements.
