I am inquiring on the behalf of my brother, who is 63, totally blind, and is living in an assisted living facility in Jacksonville, Fl 32205. I'm trying to find a service that would deliver food and/or beverages to the AL facility where he lives. This facility does not provide regular shopping trips to places like Walmart or other grocery stores and since he is blind, he cannot drive himself. It would be great if he could place an order, either via telephone or online (with the assistance of myself or some other person with a computer), and have the delivery brought to the facility that he's living in.
The Personal Needs Allowance in Florida is more than $25 a month. Why is he getting only $25? How can he get his haircut and replace worn-out clothing on that small amount?
There is something that doesn't seem right in this picture. Can you explain a little more?
There may also be a church group that would do the same thing.
Check the stores they may have a service like "Pea Pod" that will deliver groceries. (By me that is Jewel , I think that is Albertson's )
If you do not live near him what is the possibility that once a week you could make up a "Care Package" and UPS it to him. That way he can save his $25.00 and get a few snacks that will last him a week. That is if we are talking snacks and not full meals that he wants to get. Most AL facilities have in addition to the meals snacks at specific times as well as many now have juice bars and snacks available 24/7
