Isolation is becoming a problem for many aging seniors. While most seniors are happy for the opportunity to age in place in their homes, they often feel isolated and alone. Many seniors never had children, so it’s unlikely that they will have younger people who can care for them in their old age. Many seniors lost their spouse and miss that companionship. While age and mobility make it difficult for many seniors to get out of the house, having people come to their home with deliveries and providing services that they need helps relieve loneliness and meet their needs.

Shoppers will respect the senior’s choices regarding brand names and value shopping.
