My grandma is 82 years old. She lives alone, her sight is weak, and she can’t cook anymore. I am stuck in London on quarantine, so I am very nervous about her well-being and mental state. She is now staying at home in Norfolk, VA. I am looking for someone to cook her a nice meal, deliver it, and have a little warm chat with my granny. All of the items will be paid for separately.

Hello, I am a 67 years old woman living in Union County, New Jersey, and I must confess, I am really feeling the brunt of this quarantine. I have had a series of medical conditions over the last few years that have left me confined to a wheelchair and left my health, not at 100 percent.

I’m quickly running low on my meds and other home supplies, and I’m seriously terrified of going out to get some, as I have learned that older people are more likely to experience fatal complications from the Covid-19 Virus.

I am alone and well right now, but in need of quick help. I need someone who can regularly help with my shopping; this will include my medication, groceries, and other home supplies. I’ll be most grateful.
