HIRING SOMEONE TO DO FOR YOU ALL THOSE BIG AND SMALL PICKUPS AND DELIVERIES CAN BE A VERY SATISFYING INDEPENDENT LIVING DECISION. BESIDES, HAVING TO CARRY ANYTHING EXTRA WHILE WALKING OR RIDING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SURE IS NO FUN.

ONCE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE MANAGING AN ERRAND SERVICE, THEN YOU MAY FIND OTHER WAYS YOUR DELIVERY PERSON CAN BE OF FURTHER VALUE.

EXAMPLES OF ADD-ONS:

1. BRIEF KITCHEN TASK
2. SOME PAPER WORK
3. QUICK CLEANING JOB
4. MINOR SEWING REPAIR
5. READ PRINTED DIRECTIONS
6. LIGHT YARD WORK
7. OTHER CHORES WHEN EYESIGHT IS REQUIRED

SO, IF YOU ARE TIRED OF TOO MANY ON-THE-RUN CHORES, AS WELL AS TOO OFTEN ASKING FAMILY OR FRIENDS FOR HELP, CONSIDER INVESTIGATING:

1. YELLOW PAGES ERRANDS & MISC. SERVICES
2. DIAL 211 COMMUNITY RESOURCES
3. INTERNET ADS ON CRAIGs LIST
- CHECK DOMESTICS CATEGORY

4. INTERNET ADS VIA GOOGLE
- SEARCH FOR ERRANDS IN YOUR CITY-STATE

5. INDEPENDENT LIVING CENTER REFERRALS
6. SENIOR CENTER REFERRALS
7. PUBLIC LIBRARY REFERRALS

FINALLY, BECAUSE ERRAND RUNNERS ALWAYS HAVE A CELL-PHONE IT IS EASY TO MAKE CHOICES AND ANSWER QUESTIONS WHILE THEY ARE ON-THE-ROAD.

NOTE: WHILE EITHER A HOME CARE WORKER OR A MEDICAL AIDE CAN DO SOME ROUTINE TASKS SUCH AS THE ABOVE, IT PROBABLY WILL BE MORE ECONOMICAL TO INSTEAD HAVE THEM DONE BEFORE OR AFTER A HOME DELIVERY BY AN ERRAND SERVICE.

CONSUMER TIP:

FOR EFFICIENCY, PROVIDE PRODUCT EXAMPLE OR HAVE ERRAND PERSON TAKE PICTURE OF PRODUCT WITH THEIR SMART PHONE CAMERA. USE OF SHOPPING SAMPLES OR SHOPPING PHOTOS CAN GREATLY REDUCE STORE SEARCHING TIME.
